On Halloween night, you can expect to see gaggles of children escorted by parents, older siblings, aunts, uncles or family friends. You can expect to see dogs, parents and babies too young to know what’s going on or that they should enjoy the candy they have earned by being dressed up as they have been. As a trick-or-treater, you knock on doors and expect to be greeted by some person who is too old to trick-or-treat (whether an adult or young-adult) and are instead spending their Halloween evening at a party, holding down the fort at home to greet trick-or-treaters or watching scary movies, after the Charlie Brown special. You can expect all this and more, and not think anything out of the ordinary; children are getting dressed up and leaving the house, parents are escorting and plotting which pieces of sugary goodness to take for themselves from their children’s loot later on, teenagers are, preferably, off the street and keeping out of trouble, and all is normal, and all is well. But is it normal?
