Today, I took my two and a half year-old son Trick or Treating for the first time in our new neighborhood. At the very first house, a girl told us we were too early and slammed the door in our face. My son cried. FML
Gtca tells us more :
OP here! A lot of these comments are hilarious! Thanks for that and for those that showed us some support and sympathy. We started trick or treating at 5:15. Apparently trick or treating kicks up in our neighborhood around 6/6:30. Now I know. When I went trick or treating when I was younger, everyone started around 4 and people were prepared. Besides, how hard is it put some candy in a bowl? Also, some people commented about why a 2.5 year old needs candy, he doesn't, but we went for the experience. Luckily, we rebounded and had a fun Halloween after that incident.

I told that to a woman too, but I was threatened with a call to police. Apparently June 13 is too early for trick-or-treating. I had my costume on and everything. :(

And by costume, I mean birthday suit.

Halloween is about dressing your children up in a disguise and sending them to strangers houses, and threatening them for candy. She didn't give candy!

I agree #48. If she said it was 'too early' then the girl wouldn't have expected a ToT. And who knows if the two year old said "trick or treat" loud enough?

But the slamming of the door? Uncalled for.

Slamming the door is relative. It could be that the door always seems to slam, or maybe the person didn't mean to shut the door as hard as they did. I've done that a few times. In the end, as long as the two year old isn't scarred for life (rather "scared" for life heh) it should be fine.

48. There are ways to see who's at your door without opening it or asking who it is. Some doors have peek holes, (is that what they're called?) and some people look out their windows.
