I agree it is dangerous for kids now and that is sad. I grew up in a really small town and the rule was you could go to houses where you knew the people, which was quite a large percentage of the population. I doubt I'll ever let my daughter go door to door, but she loves to get dressed up in a silly costume. Hmmm, wonder where she gets that from. Did I mention that 2 friends and I went dressed as Neopolitan Ice Cream when we were in college, I was the strawberry stripe. We had a great time until Chocolate bailed and we had a harder time explaining our costume.
