A theory going into Halloween: The door-to-door tradition of trick-or-treating is fading away because of concerns about pedestrian safety, nutrition, child obesity and the general spookiness of knocking on a stranger's door at night.
Take a look at what some of our readers said on Rohnert Park-Cotati Patch's Facebook page.
We had 10, down from the usual 30 or 40 -- Lorna Blanc
We had about 30 kids over here in the L section. I was surprised and happy to see so many kids and parents out in the nasty rain. -- Sharon Reifsteck Akers
I'm in H section and we only had 3 groups of kids come. so sad. The rain for sure probably made less people come out. But even last year we maybe had 10 groups. I feel like the tradition is slowly dying out which makes me sad cause when I was a kid that was the best thing ever on Halloween!! -- Amanda Lynn Cothern
We were suprised so many kids where out in the rain last night. In L section toward the end of Lancaster we had 8-10 little groups of kids stop by. Rain aint nothing on kids who want candy lol -- Jeanna Lyons-Gonzales
How many kids knocked on your door last night looking for a sugary handout? Was it more or less than last year? Add a comment and vote in our totally unscientific poll.
