Is Door To Door Trick or Treating Becoming Obsolete?

With many communities now holding town Halloween events handing out candy in safe emvironments, it is clear that door to door trick or treat numbers are at their lowest levels. Have you noticed a decrease in your neighborhood as others have?

yes and I also noticed that kids were only going on one side of the street. I live in a cul-de-sac and almost every house was giving candy out, yet the kids would only go on one side of the street.

Yes j.t. In harbor point last night there weren't many houses participating. Years ago you could go down 1 street and have your bags full

Nothing was happening until a big group came by and wiped me out.Fortunately I had a party bag of assorted chips and dorito type snacks.We probably had 20 or so come by.

When 16-17 year old's show up at your door with no costumes on, it's time to shut it down.

It's the devils holiday, no one wants to do it anymore. It's a waste of money for a costume that lasts one day. Just buy a bag of candy for your kid at Wal-Mart and call that. Thank god people aren't participating anymore.

If some people in town would give out candy it would be nice..one person who is working in the school seems to dissapear every halloween, despite living on a busy street.. him or his wife never give out candy and it makes me mad because they can afford to.

Yes other than Somerset Ave the other usually busy spots had maybe 10 houses combined that was giving out candy. They are starting trick or treating I think a little too early as well. Most people not even home from work at 430.

We had 1 Trick or Treater.

Yes, shouldn't be out there anyway....surely not a Christian practice. It is rooted in Celtic / pagan origin. Foot step followers of Christ would never celebrate or participate in demon worship. When you see churches supporting such activities ask them to support this practice with the Bible they preach from.....

All Saints and All Souls are historical church holy days, like Christmas and Easter but not as well known. The devil can't take that away from me.

Not only are you racist but you can't spell and think much too highly of yourself.

12:11 going door to door getting candy is not devil worship. If you go to a trunk or treat, its not on Halloween but on a Saturday and what if the church passes out tracts to the kids? Is that still devil worship? Please note where kids went on the Shore to go off into the woods and dress in black robes and burn things?

Our very nice neighborhood (which has few if any blacks) was bombarded with blacks Probably 90% that came to the door were black. Why do they send wagons and buses and car loads to white neighborhoods. They need to stay in their own. Also it is really irritating to see people too old to be trick or treating come to the door or have a baby that can't even eat candy with a bag. Really takes the fun out of it!!

I lived in Northern VA. We would go for years with approx 200 trick or treaters (that's how many bags I would make up) and then decreased every year until we hardly had any. This because all the children had grown up and the neighborhood was getting "old." Then the old people started dying or moving away, the houses were sold and the neighborhood became "young" and trick or treating increased again.

This trunk or treat someone dreamed up is stupid. It just goes to show how lazy both the parents and the children are today and why every other person if fat.

Just because you want to put your take on Halloween here doesn't mean we believe u..unless you spoke directly to Lord God almighty then how the hell do u know...if anything giving children candy for dressing up isn't on The top of God's serious sh@* list..so keep it to yourself!

Hate to say it..but some of the most racist black people show up on my street for candy..no doubt..people that won't even talk to me that are black..and I'm from Baltimore and they don't even try to know me..but they smile on Halloween and say hi when I give out candy.

Were they black or white?

The way I am seeing it is that the neighborhood I live in is a nice neighborhood in a nice development. What is ruining it for us is that the Hood Rats that obviously don't live in our neighborhoods are being driven there and the adult is driving along house to house as Baby Rat sucks up as much "FREE" candy as they can. Trick or Treating has always been a family/community event. When you see carload after carload of these Hood Rats coming into your neighborhoods it definitely takes the fun out of it. I won't be handing out candy next year. Once again "those people" ruin it for everyone.

Because someone is pointing out that blacks going into someone elses neighborhood for a free hand out, that makes them a racist? I love how you idiots are quick to call someone a racist or quick to drop the race card. It's moron's like you that are ruining this country. I bet you voted for Obama!!

I agree with you about the blacks. Stay in your own Ghetto neighborhoods. Halloween isn't about going to the nicest neighborhoods to get the best FREE candy. If your neighbor isn't good enough then this should be a wake up call for you. Do something to improve your neighborhoods. Start up a Home Owners Association... Oh Wait...

You mean the neighborhood became rentals?

2:42 PM what makes someone too old to be trick or treating? When did you make the rules?

If you see some nice teenagers dressed up smiling and they are out trick or treating then you should give them some candy you damn greedy bastard! Those kids are enjoying life while they are young. Would you rather they be in some garage injecting Heroin in their arms! You are never to old to trick or treat.

You better believe it. And I even had several Thugs come after 9 pm knocking on the door. I just ignored them. That's what happens when you live in Salibury. The majority of people are black because Salisbury's rental are at 90% of the population. No matter where you live in da 'Bury you are going to be near Ghetto Trash!

I live in a nice part of Nutters Crossing and when the Ghetto Thugettes showed up I gave them copies of Trump 2016 stickers I made on my printer. Next year I am going to hand out copies of job applications when the Ghetto Thugettes show up to my house Trick or Treating for all that free candy.

Our predominantly white neighborhood was filled with car loads of blacks driving around like maniacs dropping kids off in front of houses to get candy. Majority of them weren't even in costumes and were older, like 15+. Bunch of bs.

Ever think maybe they go to a friends Halloween party every year?

Anonymous said...

Why should they name names? Maybe the person is going to a Halloween party. Maybe they just don't feel like handing out candy. I'm an anti social person and I don't like having to put on a fake persona meeting a bunch of people at my front door every couple of mins. Luckily my wife doesn't mind doing it lol

Yes it is when grown ass black people show up.
