I've lived my entire adult life in tiny dorms/apartments in the city where there were no kids and no on ever came to trick or treat.

We recently moved out to the suburbs, and I feel really dumb saying this but I have no idea how this works.

I know a lot of this is probably neighborhood contingent, but I don't really know my neighbors yet 😂 Around what time does trick or treating start (I'm in the Boston area, in case any Boston bees can comment...) And how much candy do you buy? Or do people buy something besides candy nowadays? Lol, I feel so old admitting this, but it's been a good 25 years since I have had anything to do with trick or treating!

I'm thinking my LO, who is a few months shy of two, would get a kick out of trick or treating. But he's allergic to lots of the candy. And the kid has a surprisingly good memory when mommy has made off with something he wants. If you have a similar situation - or just don't want your kid to have that amount of sugar - what is your strategy for making the candy disappear?

Thank you!
