For those of you who are planning on taking your child trick-or-treating, will you be going out in your neighborhood or to an organized community event?

A lot of businesses in our commuinity all convene at a local hotel for a trick-or-treating event. The hotel assigns each business a room, and then the kids can trick-or-treat in a safe, controlled environment. The neighborhood we currently live in is actually one of the only neighborhoods in town that still has trick-ot-treaters; most kids go to the community event, instead.

It actually makes me a little sad that so few neighborhoods have trick-or-treating anymore. I understand the appeal of a community event, but I guess nostalgia gets the best of me in this aspect; our kids will be trick-or-treating around the neighborhood.

What about you? How did you make your choice?
