Trick or Treat Times Halloween 2009: Daylight Savings Time Change
Today is Halloween, October 31st and many people are asking when trick or treating starts, but is there actually a start time for trick or treating?
Generally it depends on how old your children are, and what kind of neighborhood you live in, if they're younger it's best to start when it's still light out, but if they are a bit older, it's more fun to go out when it's dark, around 6pm or 6:30pm and take a couple of hours to collect the free candy and scare each other!
Of course, Halloween safety comes first, so parents should accompany their kids for trick or treating, unless they can be trusted with a sibling who is old enough to watch the younger children.
Always take a flashlight with you and a few supplies, such as some none candy treats for energy, and maybe even a few band-aids in case a trip on the sidewalk happens! Even a warm jacket might come in handy as it can get pretty cold in late October.
Also, don't forget that it's Daylight Savings tonight, so your clocks will go back one hour at 2am this morning. For some that means more Halloween partying, but for others that means one more hour of sleep!
