My compromise is that we got Emma a Halloween costume (avoiding anything demonic or occult like devils and witches or even anything scary) that appropriately covers everything it needs to cover and are taking her trick-or-treating at the houses of a few friends, family, church members, and neighbors that we know and trust. We also took her to our church's Fall Festival over the weekend where she got more than enough candy (even if we weren't going to take her trick-or-treating!) and got to play games and bounce in the bounce house.
I'm curious. What does everyone else do?
