Is there something highly ironic about halloween?

We always tell children not to talk to strangers and not to take candy from strangers.

Yet on one night of the year, not only do we encourage kids to do just that, we actually send the kids to the strangers house.

And not all trick or treaters have their parents with them. Kids on the older end of the trick or treating spectrum, such as 10-12, often go out in small groups without adult supervision.

Have we been getting lucky all these years?

Just because nothing very foreseeably bad has come of this in the past, that doesn't dictate the future. This year could be the year.

    Yea just go with your kids and look through their candy of corse you also have to do a taste test and tax them on it. Anyways, people say “oh people won’t put drugs in candy because it’s so expensive” and that makes people want to do it more because they are sick and want to hurt kids. It’s rare but I would be careful.

    Its seems to be a cursed holiday, because something always happens to interfere with it.  Last year, a freak storm wiped out the event.  Now, its Covid.

    Yes.  There were stories about people razor blades in apples, but they were just stories, but that being nothing bad is passed.
