Halloween still seven weeks out.

Local authorities dictate a 1.5 hour window for trick-or-treat time 2017:

Trick-or-treat in city limits Oct. 31

Your family will start at 6:00 and be done for the year at 7:30 p.m.

Several locations have decided that your family will be done Trick-or-Treating for the year at 7:00 p.m. on the 31st.

Who gets to make decisions on how your family will behave? Not parents? Not you & the others who live in the cul-de-sac? Not the people who planned the block party last summer? Not the people who have created and enjoyed Halloween traditions in the neighborhood?

Same country that made a big deal of celebrating freedom & independence early in July.

When did government authorities take on the role of deciding when families/kids go out to trick-or-treat?

No such effort when I was growing up.
