“Dear PoP,

I’d be interested to hear about the state of trick-or-treating in PoPville. There are very few other children on our block, and I’ve never seen more than a couple little kids out and about on Halloween. We mostly get unfriendly pre-teens who didn’t even bother to dress up. Does anyone have thoughts on the safety of trick-or-treating with a small child, or blocks that are especially kid-friendly on Halloween?”

We looked at some people’s experiences last year. I feel like it changes every year. Some years there are tons of kids and some years not so much. What advice do you guys have? How many bags of candy is generally enough? What are the times that the kids come? (Please say what neighborhood you’re talking about.)
