I mean Halloween is on a Friday for gosh sakes. Best day to have Halloween..What gives? My kid is sitting here dressed and waiting to go out. I'm not taking him out only to look like a fool for being the only one out.

I like Nobama's comment. That's great!

Who cares when Trick-or-Treat or the parade is as long as our children get to go out and have their fun. The best part about Halloween is seeing them in their costumes and the smiles on their faces when they get their candy and see the floats and bands in the parade.

Having Trick-or Treat at different times in October helps me out because I take my son in my dad's neighborhood so he can see him in Hanover and then take him trick-or-treating in East Berlin to see my mom on the 31st. Thus, I personally prefer having trick-or-treat on different days of the week.

Besides if you think about it if Trick-or-Treat and the parade were on the same night, that wouldn't workout because you know the children want to partake in both activities.

Where I grew up we did the same thing, trick-or-treated for a whole week. It is so funny to explain that to my kids, they think we were crazy. Truth is, it was a lot of fun

When we were kids we trick-n-treated for a whole week starting at 6:00PM and we would walk all over town with out our parents. Most times our costumes were homemade except for our mask that were usually store bought. Every night we would bring our bags of goodies home and put them in a couple of big bowls. My gosh we had candy, cookies, apples, nickels and pennies for a long time. It was so much fun. In school we dressed and had parties wearing our costumes. Today the schools recognize it as a pagan custom so most times it is no longer permitted. That was maybe 30 yrs. ago. Growing up in the 50's, 60's and 70's was truly fun to be a kid.
Another holiday St. Valentines day. We gave out valentines to our friends in school with a party. On that night we went around the neighborhood and slipped valentines uder doors of kids we knew. Sometimes we would knock on the door and hide and watch their response as they opened the valentine envelope. I guess this was before computers, so many technical things and so many laws to protect us citizens, huh.

I see we have ANOTHER dumba$$ on the blog. I don't live in East Orange, NJ. It's where the IP routing goes through. I live in York County. You know, the same York County where you'll be tooling your snot-nosed little punks around in your minivan hoping to hoard candy in every town.
you know what you just need to take a chill pill!!! time out is in need here for real their is no need to be nasty you do not know if this person has kids or not they where just sharing their childhood experiences quiet being rude if you do not want to give out candy then don't no one is making you. I in fact will be because I think that halloween should be a pleaseant day for all ages to enjoy in the fun.

What is the problem with actually celebrating something on the day it was created? Halloween is Oct. 31, not whatever day you choose it to be.

I have lived in Hanover, PA for several years now. I am another Maryland transplant. I don't understand why Pennsylvanians get soooo upset when the trick or treat date is questioned. Why, oh why, is the 31st unacceptable?? Really, why? That's all I want to know.
The only answer I ever get is "because that's the way it's always been".
I'm with you Jennifer, it's weird (you said odd, same thing sort of).

I just moved here and hanover has a lot of issues. Trick or treating a WEEK before halloween? Ridiculous. As far as trick or treating in multiple places, hey, i paid $ 200 on costumes and glow sticks and candy buckets and pumkins, i intend to make the most out of the holiday. Its not about candy, because i dont even allow my kids to eat most of the stuff they get. They have fun going up to the houses of people who are really into itand have scary decorations. They enjoy seeing their friends out and its just fun for them. If people re so worried about kids double treating, maybe they should have halloween on the same day, the day its supposed to be, instead of making their own rules.
