About 10 years ago, our parish seat about 15 miles away started having a Main Street Prowl with the local businesses. Every since then, the trick or treating in our town has dwindled until we no longer get any trick or treaters. I stopped buying candy about 2 years ago...still buy a small bag, just in case, but shouldn't even do that. It makes me sad because I totally loved handing out candy and seeing all the little people dressed up. On the other hand, Halloween always excites me because, to me, it's the official kick off of the holiday season!
