It depends on how much driving I guess, I saw a kid last night who was being driven from house to house...that's going way too far but driving them a different neighborhood or something isn't too bad

We drive to grams/papa house-do a few neighbors to show him off, then to aunts house, then to nana/ papa house and did their neighborhood.

This is why we stopped providing treats to trick or treaters. We have maybe 40 kids in our neighborhood, but saw over 200 three years ago. Parents would drop off a van full at the end of the cul-de-sac and wait for the kids.

It was well below freezing here last night. At that point, it's practical.

OK kids, you have covered the 4 good houses in our neighborhood, now get in the car so we can hit GM-B's house, then GM&GP-A's, then Aunt C's, Aunt D's and Uncle E's house. They are scattered all over town so be sure to go to the bathroom first.

We went to a different neighborhood to trick-or-treat because I grey up in kind of a poor neighborhood and some of my neighbors were a little sketchy.

I live on the outskirts of Portland and rain is our game, and until these past few years I've never seen cars. Weather excuses just make me scoff, I know that's not really fair, I can't help it.

Another example of the death of community.

The first wave is from the neighborhood. They tend to walk with their parents. The drivers come later from outside our neighborhood. By then, I close up shop and turn out lights.

I had 4 kids yesterday. No parents. I get to eat all the candy now!

Ridiculous. It just shows how lazy parents are these days and creates a safety hazard for kids who walk from house to house.

I take my kid on my Segway. We ride right up to the door. And I can carry heavy sacks of candy. My daughter is fairly short so even though she is 22 she still passes as a teenager.

It depends on the circumstances. I was never driven trick-or-treating and never drove. But I've also seen weather conditions, densities, and neighborhoods that make driving practical.

It depends, if they live in a neighbprhood where the houses are long distances apart, or maybe it is snowing 0/rainingnoutside, that's one thing.
But if they walk their kids up to a door, get in the car and drive 30 feet and repeat the same thing- :/

It's safer and if the houses are far apart it makes more sense than walking

It was cold and raining last night. There are streets where only 1 or 2 houses are handing out candy. It makes sense to drive them.

If the purpose is efficiency and supervision, fine. If its to let your teens collect goodies from multiple neighborhoods, you suck as a parent.

We had a lot of that tonight we're not too far from the mall. Kids had pillowcases helpful of candy that's rather overdoing it.

Tops, I have young parents expecting candy for themselves along with the kids! That's a bit much in my opinion.

I can see that when it's cold and snowy, but on a night like tonight (mid 40s) there's just no need for that.

I lived in the mountains as a kid and needed a car to warm up in every few houses.

It's ridiculous in warmer climates though.
