I believe it has always been both ways since trunk or treat started. Just the trunk or treat has ruined it because parents take them to that then not houses so it has discouraged people from passing out because no one stops by their houses. Trunk or treat is a the kathie Simpkins park this year

Since trunk or treat most people at homes stopped because you buy candy and then no one comes so why buy candy in the first place.

East prairie is becoming too politically correct.... first, they stopped throwing candy at parades, then discourage residents from doing traditional Halloween.

I can see were they will not let candy be thrown from a float. Too many accidents where kids run up, fall down, and slip under the floats. Most towns have people that walk with the floats and pass out candy--this is acceptable. I love decorating for all seasons. Evil is what a person makes up in their own head. A tiny majority should not rule the roost. I come from an area that started that car trunk stuff and I HATE it. Parent just need to take their kids to homes that they know and forget trying to make a mass haul of candy. If you don't go with your kids, then shame on you or your kids are too big for trick-or-treat. Trunk treats are for bigger towns were people don't know one another. Trunk treats just brings down your community in reality and creates a snow-ball effect. I can not stand churches that don't permit Halloween but give out "candy blessings" and trunk treats. Circumvent Halloween all you want, it is still the night of kids dressing up and having a little fun.

If you don't like it don't go. I am pretty sure it's not mandatory. My kids like it because they see their friends in their costumes and think it is fun.

East Prairie is too backward to even know what "politically correct" even means.

There needs to be a balance, have a 'trunk and treat' the Sunday before Halloween while allowing trick and treating on the evening of Halloween.

the city has adopted policy that states if Halloween falls on Sunday or Wednesday then it shall be celebrated the day before.

I'm a Christian, and I think that's a little wrong. Why are churches so against Halloween? I don't know a lot about the bible. Is there really something in there about not to celebrate days like that? I was really thinking the trunk or treat being on Tues would be neat and then the kids could still go Wed but if its a city policy then no we can't. I understand the importance of having a curfew but determining when to celebrate it is a little much when it's clearly the 31st. Just my opinion.

yes there is something in there about not celebrating holidays of other religions. But if they don't want to celebrate it then they don't have to! Keep your butt at home & turn your porch light off! You can't make others change their holidays around just because it happens to fall on another religion's sabbath. The Christians have all kinds of holy days that coincide with other religion's holy days. Mainly because they were stolen but that's another discussion altogether. I bet they wouldn't want to change Christmas if it fell on a Sunday or Wednesday and that holiday is taken directly from the pagan winter solstice. Jesus want even born in December and that's in the Bible too! Bet they have a Christmas tree in all those churches. WITCHES!!!!!

So Halloween is a religious holiday of Pagans? I guess I could google everything but if you already know the answer.

yes, it started that way but the tradition of dressing in guises began in Catholic Ireland as a way to confuse the evil spirits that were supposed to be loose on all hallow's eve. There were never any spirits associated with the pagan holiday. That's something the Christians made up to demonize those who refused to fall in line.
