Trick or Treat!

My first couple of years in the city, I bought Hallowe’en candy, and was greatly surprised when absolutely zero trick-or-treaters came knocking on my door. Since then, I’ve fallen out of the habit of having candy on hand, which always leaves me with a certain anxiety about what I’ll do if this suddenly turns out to be the year when the costumed hordes arrive.

Well, tonight I was at choir rehearsal till 10, and Matt didn’t get home from work till after 9. Either way, we weren’t home to see if Center City has finally become a trick-or-treating zone.

How about your neighborhoods? What are the local traditions about candy-gathering in Philly’s different areas and ‘burbs?

    The Art Museum area was lively with the costumed critters running around. The grade school tike wearing the Scream mask with very real looking blood running down it gave me a chill!
