I had a friend whose parents were against Halloween. They just sat there at the window watching everyone else walk around going trick-or-treating.
That's sad. My brother, some friends, and I went trick or treating and we knocked on the door of this apartment. Then, no one answered, but then we saw a little through the sliding door blinds (next to the door) that someone was in there, so we knocked again. She opened and said, 'NO TRICK OR TREAT!!' Can you believe that? It was a black lady, so I don't know why do that to innocent children.
Next year my brother and I went again remembering. When we got there we so on the outside door (it's an apartment so the patio is at the front with a latch door. We saw a paper with bright orange markers "No Trick or Treat." Children don't understand this, so why do this?
Whew.........we just laughed LOL.
