Don't come around d BCIT (norfolk). There is like no giving out candies . I think because there isn't many family with kids. Last year I got a bag of kit kat and less than 5 people knock on my door. Around 9lish one kid knock on the door and I gave him the whole bag of candies.

Sorry had to fail because you're living in fear. Its your job as a parent to inspect the candy.

My neighbourhood is fantastic at halloween. Just about every house is decorated and maybe 2 or 3 out of the ~50 homes on our route don't participate. Lots of kids running from door to door collecting candy, just like when I was a kid.

I lived in a house with a pretty long driveway, and used to dump about half of one of those boxes of kit-kats and coffee crisps into every kids bag, of course I would always have leftovers to eat for the next couple days.

And there were always the houses that simply left out bowls of candy and went away for the night, these are like jackpots if you are asshole enough to take all the candy they leave out. (if you go around 630 to 7ish you can make it to these houses before anyone else).
my bad,i meant west side of van, like around granville st. and oak.

They said that the whole razor thing was actually a myth and there was never a report (in Canada) at least of it happening

If your in Burnaby, it's still crowded around the 2nd Street Elementary school. They also have a fireworks show every year.

The razor thing is a myth.

I went to one of those old bungalows and you see his creepy old hippie guy inside. You would stereotype of think that this isn't the house to trick or treat at but you know what...the guy inside is probably one of the more kids friendly homes and gave out lots of candy.

I just hope it doesn't rain like last year so time won't be cut so short.

The last time I went trick-or-treating was with my buddy and his little nephews.

We were in the vicinity or Cambie and King Edward area. To be more specific, it was W. 16th to King Edward and between Oak and Cambie. Almost every house participated and almost all of them were very generous.

Anyone else go to the Dave Chapelle's comedy tour? He talked about razor's in candy.

He was bang on about it. Anyone who does this is likely an idiot.

I mean what do you do, put a razor in a piece of candy then the next day you pray and scour all the newspapers to see if some kid was hurt by a razor blade in his candy?

Solar West. It's a complex just west of Boundary Road near Rumble. My sister lives close by and I used to take my kids there all the time. Houses so close together and they always gave good stuff. Now this was like 20 years ago, LOL, but I can't imagine it being different today.

As a parent it was like heaven on a hellish night. You could just stand there and watch the kids go to like 15 doors and they'd be within sight.

Um..ya, that's probably what that guy would do if he put a razor in a candy.

Dafuq?!

Since my elementary school days, all the way through ugrad, people have always dressed up for Hallowe'en. Not everybody does, but at least a portion of students and teachers and staff always join in on the fun. I distinctly remember that back in elementary school, teachers encouraged us to dress up, even if it was only something simple like face paint or a simple rubber mask.

In any case, I thought most trick or treating now happens at the malls. It is not the same experience as it was, but at least it is still something.
