I was just wondering what cities were still safe enough that the tradition of going to strangers houses in costume to receive candy is still going strong. In Bristol TN its still a big thing. I may take some pictures this year and post them, the sidewalks will be packed with people Halloween night, yards decorated with pumpkins, spooky looking little people everywhere all jazzed on Snickers bars and M&M's, the schools and firehouses will have their annual haunted house. Its one tradition i'm glad has survived long enough for my kids to experiance.

I'm pretty sure every city does it... But with a little more caution.

2nd year for sticking the mannequin up on the roof. Lit up with flourescent paint and blacklight, this 6 foot thing looks just like a ghost in her wedding dress and her flickering orange lantern. Last year, one little girl ( 3 year old ) actually wanted her to come down. This things' in my living room now, creeping me out. It's the social event of the year here in Vegas.

All over metro Denver. I'm not sure how much activity right in Denver, b/c I don't live there. When I did, we had plenty; ran out of candy one year, and my DH, that big softie, went and got some more.
