What you have seen and experienced to me is unreal. We live in the south, have trick-or-treaters of all shapes and sizes, some in costume, some not. They are all kids looking to have clean fun so who could possibly care if they are local to the neighborhood or not? Age, race, “deserving”, it is all despicable. They are kids who want to carry on a timeless tradition. Thank you for shedding light on this, and for handing out candy to anyone who comes from your door. Raw and well-written article.
