Earlier today I went to downtown San Rafael to grab lunch. Kids were trick or treating at the stores on Fourth Street. It blows my mind that kids trick or treat at malls in the middle of the day; all my Halloween memories are of trick or treating with my dad at night around our neighborhood.

    I saw the same thing today while shopping. It’s a bit odd to me. My mom would take my sister and I to our grandparents’ neighborhoods to trick or treat. It was more fun, and some people gave out full-size candy bars. :o)

    I have awesome memories of trick or treating in my favorite Halloween costume as a gypsy. I loved wearing tons of bangles and eye makeup! My favorite haunts from back in the day did NOT include stores or malls. I work at an outlet store in a shoppin center and we had so many kiddoes pounding the pavement..boy were we glad that our candy person was out on sidewalk and not in store!

  3. super cool! this pic just gave me another idea for decorating for a Halloween party next year!

    I saw kids trick-or-treating at the mall today too. So strange – I hope the stores were prepared for that!!

    I was there too. I had lunch at Cafe Amore next to the theater. So good!

    There were so many kids. I was so surprised. Did you get a lot or trick of treaters?

    II love the Halloween street display. It is totally not the same as trick or treating on the streets at night when it is cold and dark and atmospheric. You end up running into your friends and it is so fun. Trick or treating at the mall sounds so suburbia, parents today are too paranoid.

    Wow i didnt know kids trick or treated round the shops lol.

    I remember taking my son trick or treating round my mums neighbourhood when he was younger. He didnt go this year as he is now 15 and at over 6 foot would probably scare people lol.

    Yeah, I didn’t believe my parents when they told me there would be tons of kiddies trick or treating at the mall. When I came to work at 2 there were little pirates and disney princesses all around. We actually ran out of candy by 4.

    That’s so cool! I miss living in a house just to see the trick or treater’s. I guess I should have gone to the mall and watched the kids. While it’s odd to trick or treat at the mall, I’m all for it. Unfortunately, there are some crazy people out there.
