We got invited to a "Trunk or Treating" event that was held today at the local Mormon church. Basically, the deal is, instead of going door to door, the kids go from car trunk to car trunk in a parking lot. The church served hot dogs and punch, and the kids got to be outside in their costumes and collect loot.
What was really cool, was that it was not limited to the members of the church. In fact, my friend that told me about it happens to be Jewish. She said that her family has been going to this thing for years.
So my daughter put on her costume, I grabbed a bag of Halloween candy, and we headed for the church. We handed out candy, and my daughter collected candy. Seems pretty win-win to me.
