Trick or Treat in Rural Areas
Unlike kids in Suburban neighborhoods, those in Rural areas have difficulties trick-or-treating
Desperate kids spy a single farmhouse at night on a long, lonely road. But when their family's van pulls up in the driveway, there are no lights on.
It may sound like a scene from "Scooby Doo," but it's often the reality for trick-or-treaters in rural areas. For them, Halloween is no stroll through a well-lit neighborhood. After all, it's hard to go door to door when the doors are so far apart. (
Traveling for Treats
For many in rural areas trick-or-treating means getting in the car and traveling to homes of relatives and parents' co-workers for candy. As fewer people in rural areas welcome costumed guests, the trek for treats can be a long one. (https://www.chron.com/life/holidays/article/For-rural-kids-it-s-a-challenge-to-find-places-1979777.php)
