Trick or Treating in Mexico

Trick or Treating in Mexico

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go trick or treating in Mexico? Well, here’s our experience from last night.

We waited as usual until our first batch of trick or treaters arrive so we could go out. Then we gave them candy and joined with them to go around to the rest of the houses in the neighborhood. It’s one of the only chances we have to get to know our neighbors during the year, even if we have to go out even after the boys’ bedtime.

The kids go around and sing a song that they usually don’t really know. Sometimes it seems that costumes are optional. The most popular costume is probably witches. For boys, dracula or pirates are fairly common. Our kids went as super heroes.

Unfortunately, the candy we got isn’t the wonderful chocolaty candy that we love like Snickers and M&Ms. Some of it is covered in chili power, and the most popular candy option was lollipops.

Overall, though, our kids had fun and we got to meet some neighbors.
