Halloween Trick-or-Treating: Walk or Drive?


With yet another Halloween Night rapidly approaching I wondered, is driving children from house to house cheating the spirit of trick-or-treating? The advantages are that the kids will be safer than walking around at night, they will be able to hit more houses (could be a good or bad thing depending on your frame of mind), they will be able to stay warmer if it is cold out, and you will be able to keep track of all the kids in one space. However, the disadvantages are, trick-or-treating is supposed to be done by foot, gas is over $3.00 a gallon, motion sickness will set in from stopping and starting from house to house, and children may approach your car thinking that you are passing out candy (could be an awkward conversation).
