|The good stuff!|
When my older two were little, our mall hosted trick-or-treating, and that was really fun. All the kids dressed up in costumes, and the mall merchants provided the treats. Then our church, other local churches, schools and our local YMCA hosted Halloween or Fall Carnivals, and we'd attend one or two of those. And we've always attended Boo-On-The-Bayou.
Next year, we'll be better prepared! And... when did parents start driving kids to trick-or-treat? While we're on the subject, I'm all for making Halloween the last Saturday of October. It's just easier!
