As Halloween approaches, Parents are already scrambling to put costumes together and getting the house decorated for all the little villains, superheroes, princesses, dragons, ghosts, and goblins to come a knocking on the door yelling Trick Or Treat. So this leads me to this question whos going to stay home and answer the door to hand out Candy Mom Or Dad?
Every year we had a dilemma in our household because we as parents both wanted to go out early with our kids when they were little to take pictures and make sure they could experience Halloween the right way. Whether you’re the one holding down the fort by giving out candy, or you’re taking your child on the rounds across your neighborhood, it’s important to know what time the festivities start.
Since there are official national hours for trick-or-treating on Halloween, I wanted to do a poll and see what everyone thinks is the best time to get out. most Americans agreed trick-or-treaters should start arriving by 6 p.m. and be finished by 9 p.m. at the latest and if you have a toddler, or live in a neighborhood where many families have toddlers, you can expect the festivities to begin while it’s still light out. In order to finish up before it gets dark, you can look up what time the sun will set near you. You may want to double-check the weather forecast before you go, but the Farmer’s Almanac can give you a projected sunset time based on your ZIP code.
and a quick rule of thumb for you all, remember to bring a flashlight, look both ways before crossing the road, and to walk in groups. Have a Great Halloween, and I hope you come home with a pillowcase full of candy.
