    Does anyone take their kids out trick or treating during the daytime?

    My kids and I are home bored and I figured I would take them out earlier - my wife looked at me like this : [IMG]http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o38/fishooked/emoticons/RAGE148.png[/IMG]

    I remember going as a kid as soon as school was out, around 3:30, and not coming back until 10pm. [IMG]http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o38/fishooked/emoticons/RAGE0102.png[/IMG]

    What is with this 'waiting until it gets dark' crap? [IMG]http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o38/fishooked/emoticons/RAGE0071.png[/IMG]

    For the most part, you're waiting for people to get off work...

    With the snowstorm, you'll probably have better luck...

    Same with me--we literally ran off the school bus home to get our costumes on and go right out.

    When my kids were young we took them out immediately after school till about 6:00, broke for dinner for 20 mins (which usually meant eating candy) and then went back out again.

    When they got older and went by themselves, they'd wait till about 5 to go, but then went till late.

    Well it's a risk reward kind of thing. One the one hand if you wait too long there is the chance that some houses will be without candy. However, there is also the chance if you get there late enough houses will have lots of candy left and want to get rid of it by giving you massive handfuls of the stuff.

    It's been so up and down at my place the last few years I can't get a handle on how much stuff to buy. One year I get a lot of kids the next I get like 12 of them. (Then the late comers get the glory haul of two fist fulls of candy each.)

    Taking kids kids out during light hours? Why not just send them to Ghey School while you're at it.

    Two 8 year olds just came to the door. Their mom is tailing them in a car from house to house.

    My parents always warned me about this in candy...

    Was there any truth to it or some type of urban legend...

    I nailed the Varsity HS shorstop in the throat with an egg from 25 yards when I was in 9th grade :D . He almost killed me.

    I live in rural Arkansas.... I understand how dangerous it can be there. I've lived near Compton, Ca for 2 years, but here, its awesome. My kids can trick or treat at night and go on hay rides, hell, they could go eggin' tonight at 10:00 and they'd be fine. I came back home to raise a family in a safe environment.... success.
