Is trick-or-treating still a thing? If you have kids, do you still take them door-to-door for candy? I remember when I was little, my parents would let me hit up our neighborhood and maybe the block in front of and behind us in search of candy.....but are those days over? 

I think in recent years, trick-or-treating isn't as popular as it used to be.  I've heard friends and relatives say they don't get near as many trick-or-treaters as in previous years. Halloween carnivals and fall festivals have become safe places to take your little ones for games, prizes and candy. I have younger children who still love to dress up and get out and about but we go the carnival and festival route. Which do you prefer?
