OMG, are you serious?

More like we turn off the lights at 8pm, because the moms in Hoochie Nurse outfits arrive with the 8 month old babies on the hip after that. NOT. thanks and enjoy the ride.

Ok minorities, don't go trick or treating there because it could get ugly.

They do trick and treat "there." And the children are received just like any others. It's the parents holding infants that have caused the shut down.

The worst part is when the adults walk up, not in any costume, and hold out a Walmart sack and expect you to give them candy. The actual kids from the neiborhood usually go around together and are done in an hour then all the white trash and Mexicans flood in from Porter and we have to shut it down.

Many people think the same way out here. All I have to say is some folks are so dull/uptight they can't even loosen up 1 day a year. I've got a whole haunted house/garage idea in the works for the future when the kids get older, like someone had in SW Houston when I was growing up. We need a little spirit here, and I'll bet the people will follow the "Haunted house" signs just like they follow the yard sale signs...

You all have not seen trick or treating on overload until you have seen it in Lindale Park. I have no idea why it has become such a big thing over there. It is like a circus and goes on until like 10:00 PM or later. There are the neighborhood kids, the truck loads of kids, the whole thing. Every street is packed for hours. I'm talking packed where you can hardly drive down them. It's hard to think of something to compare it to. You have people in the low-riders and all of that, the pick up trucks, everything. It is an experience, that's for sure.

the trick or treating scene in E.T. was pretty cool. I thought it was really that cool in the US
