How did your family celebrate Halloween and are you following those traditions today?

I grew up in the country, so we never went trick or treating as a kids. Except for 1 yr... when I was 10 yrs old, I begged my mother to let me. So, I went with a friend in the city for a few hours. It was a lot of fun.

Now, we do take our son trick or treating. - - I thing my husband and I enjoy it more than he does. (He is only 22 mths.)

We live on a circle of about 35 houses in a suburb of Boston. We pretty much know everyone on the street. I still don't let my kids go to houses I don't know, even though my neighbors joke me about being paranoid. I say, how am I supposed to teach my kids, if I don't follow the rules?

There is an annual Halloween party each year that about 10 families attend. It is really fun.

We lived in a nice neighborhood, of course back then they all were and we would run as fast as we could to cover as many houses as we could. Those are great memories.
