Did anyone else have a problem with large numbers of Mexicans, including late teens and adults (people in their 30s!) invading your neighborhood and trick or treating this year? I love seeing the little kids in their costumes, and seeing my neighbors, but I am not buying candy to hand out to a bunch of parasites who don't live near me and should get a job and buy their own damn candy. I wanted to tell them to F off, but of course am afraid of gang retaliation. I guess it's another thing the mexicans have ruined, next year I will have to think long and hard if I will even answer the door at all.....

Had a great time this year on Halloween! And no, I didn't notice if they were black, white or Mexican. Or even if they lived in my neighborhood, way too many kids around here to keep track of all of them. I did find them all to be well behaved, respectful and out to have a good time!

i've noticved an increase in racist hate posting in the messages lately.
i hope this trend stops soon.
Halloween has ALWAYS been for the kids in this town and it always will be that way.
Fox Lake has some really great kids because it has really good parents who spend time with these kids.
We're not a perfect bunch but we really care about our youngins.
From what i've seen the kids treated everyone with respect on halloween this year and as usual they got their rewards with plenty of treats.
So take your racists comments of hate back where you came from.
Leave the holidays for the kids.

The kids in my neighborhood were respectable as well, i did notice bigger kids later into the day trick or treating, but they were respectable as well. Seems as though they had enough respect to allow the lil ones to enjoy the day before they started trick or treating. I didn't notice the color of none their skin either but then again who cares, these are kids big and small but kids none the less.

I would be very happy to leave the holidays for the kids. The whole point is that adults are dressing up and trick or treating. They never seem to miss an opportunity to mooch. And the fact is, all of the late teens and full on adults doing this were MEXICAN.

I have to say we experienced the same problem this year. It has never been like this before...I had to make a quick run to the store, the two main roads into our subdivision had about 300 cars parked on them, it looked like a parking lot. There were Emergency Management Police Vehicles patrolling the neighborhood, it was mostly hispanic adults doing the trick or treating! I gave up on answering the door after my trip to the store.

I would love to know what neighborhoods this was in. It certainly wasn't the case in Antioch. The kids were great!

Man, you have some serious issues and I can only hope you are not the one in your household to teach any young children anything about humanity. Sounds like they were doing things right, bet they had tons of fun halloween night - more power to them! I hope next year they come back to your neighborhood except this time they bring their family, friends and neighbors! Learn to see people as people - not by the color of their skin. I think you would do the world a favor to just keep your door shut next year and spend time with your miserable self instead.

Agreeing that the kids in Antioch were great. We had more than ever this year, and I loved it. Everyone was polite and respectful. We had black, white, hispanic, and I'm sure others. We get the farm kids in our area too, they drive in, park and trick or treat. And they're welcome.

If I had adults t-or-t'ing, I'd be looking at them oddly though, regardless of race. It's a kids holiday, not adult.

We are in one of the newer subdivisions near Round Lake Beach. Now a friend of mine pointed out to me that it could be because our Trick or Treat was on a Sunday afternoon and it is a safe neighborhood. I really don't begrudge anyone that, of course we want our children to be safe. It is usual for parents to walk with their kids, but they don't normally hold out bags for candy and if they do of course I am generous. This year it was large groups of hispanic adults, few children, definitely not the norm for our neighborhood. With the amount of cars it was almost like it was an organized event!

Let me just make clear, once again, that I was not referring to the kids, black white or hispanic. I was talking about ADULTS, over 18, and in some cases WAY over 18, who were not just chaperoning their kids, but trick or treating themselves, as Leader of the Pack has confirmed. I don't know who told these people that adults are supposed to trick or treat, but it is going to ruin Halloween for me. I love giving candy to the kids, but am not going to give it to adults, and I do not care to risk retaliation by telling the adults to get lost, which leaves me no option but to just not answer the door. As I said, another tradition ruined.

I do not have a racist bone in my body, I am not always PC LOL, but I am not racist. This years Trick or Treat was very strange and maybe a tad bit creepy. It seemed it was not for the kids, like it was taken over...I think that is what some of us are concerned about.

I will say some of the adults that were dressed in costume, the costumes were quite beautiful!

Agreed. It is not a racist comment. It is a race comment. I live in Hainesville cuz you needed to know. Groups of ten to fifteen at my door with adult women. Thirty to forty years old. It maybe my last halloween as well.

I had a Hispanic woman hold my door open with her foot and demand "more candy" and hold out her bag. She was not in costume. I do not open my door anymore and I used to LOVE handing out tons of candy to cute kids in costume. More own kids quit treat or treating younger than necessary because of the swarms of adults (all Hispanic) jostling for position at doors opened by our neighbors and the numbers of trucks and vans filled to capacity zooming from house to house as kids climbed in and out at every house (what happened to walking??!!!) made it unsafe for neighborhood kids to go out. Now, after being bullied by a woman who refused to leave or let me close my door (after being very generous with her kids), I don't feel safe or happy about opening up my door (and wallet) for trick or treaters any more!

I buy two types of candy. Good candy like Reces and Snickers for the little kids. I also buy the cheap stuff for the derelicts.
