Question of the Day

Do you think communities should reschedule their Beggar's Night because of the weather?

86.74% YES
13.25% NO

Comment: I think they should! They know the weather for Thursday night! And they know the weather for Friday night is 100% better! And in my case living in Huber Heights..the Waybe Northmont game is also Thursday night which means less people passing out candy and traffic around the school is a horrible idea for the little trick or treaters! from Huber Heights Ohio by Kara

Comment: It's crazy that cities/towns aren't rescheduling yet! If they won't then I think that the communities should do it themselves! Share with neighbors friends and family and let them know well all pass it out Friday night instead. from Hamilton,Ohio by Kara

Comment: Pick the day before or after. It doesn't matter. It's still trick or treat. from Franklin, Ohio. by Sonya

Comment: The weather will be rough tomorrow and we need kids and the Adults taking them to be safe. from beaver creek oh by Ana

Comment: It's time to think about the children. Their welfare could be at stake with this. from Huber Heights/ Ohio by Sheri

Comment: Last year we had to take kids out in the cold rain. They did not have any fun and most houses closed up well before 8pm from dayton by rocki

Comment: Yes very much so. These little kids wait all year for 2 hours to trick or treat, and we don't need them getting sick. from Dayton, Ohio by Barbara

Comment: How dare they not take our kids safety into account. from kettering ohio by evelyn

Comment: Yes!! There is potential for severe weather & high winds which will make it almost impossible for this to go on as scheduled. Little children look forward to this day- so why not, especially for their safety. from Kettering, Ohio by Amy

Comment: Reasons: Chill + Wet = Cold or Flu Slick roads = danger Rain + Storms = danger, unhappy parents, wet kids & chaos Straight line winds = Duh cancel and reschedule from Cinti Ohio by Wgoss

Comment: Whats the point if its going to be very rainy and dangerous? either reschedule or cancel it from Miamisburg, OH by Cheryl

Comment: Come on it's about the kids. They are not going to have funny dressed up in heavy raid and high winds.. Lets do it on fri or sat from Moraine, Ohio by Kerk

Comment: If they have common sense they would. What if a tree limb would break and hit a child?? from Xenia, Ohio by Sandra

Comment: Many other communities are pushing theirs to Friday or Saturday, targeting more favorable weather. Probably too late for our area. from Tipp city, OH by Tony

Comment: it would be great for Dayton ,but I think its to late from Dayton Ohio by Toni

Comment: Why have them go out in the rain and all get sick when its not a big dael to reschedule from Huber heights by Pamela roop

Comment: Why not change it to the next day and have a more enjoyable time... Isn't that what it's about.. Not like anybody can afford to take their children or themselves to the doctor... from Huber Heights Ohio by Stephanie Pratt

Comment: It is more dangerous when it is cold and rainy from Centerville Ohio by Jean

Comment: Weather should be really bad here like to sit outside to see costumes from russells point, ohio by diane

Comment: yes, it's for the safety of the kids (not comfort). It is harder for the drivers to see at night especially when kids may be wearing dark outfits. from Dayton by Thom

Comment: to nasty out side for little kids to be out in this weather from new lebanon ohio by renee

Comment: Centerville did this last year too. Let the children enjoy the evening.... please change to Friday from Centerville, OH by Mary

Comment: I think they should reschedule to another day, so the children can have better weather to go and have fun. from Dayton,Ohio by Janet Brockway

Comment: not safe for kids winds and storms we should be worried bout kids safety from new lebanon oh by scott

Comment: for the kids saftey and enjoyment from miamisburg, oh by jeremy

Comment: Little kids don't need to be out in the wind and cold if it can easily be rescheduled. from Huber Heights, OH by Natalie

Comment: High winds & just bad weather all together doesn't seem worth it to me if a child gets hurt. from Ohio by Holly

Comment: No one can enjoy taking children out in weather that has gusty winds and downpouring rain. Think of it as a school snow day. And who would go out in that? from Englewood OH by Carol

Comment: Why wouldn't you reschedule would be a better question. Piqua acknowledges low 60's and raining but keeping schedule... The kids will really enjoy this. not from Piqua, Ohio by Dwayne

Comment: If you have a choice between changing the date to make it more enjoyable for the kids, and it doesn't change the meaning (like Christmas), then why wouldn't you change it? There will be a lot of disappointed kids in the neighborhoods, I'm afraid. How long would you want your kid out in this wind and rain, and it's only supposed to get worse. from New Lebanon, OH by Barb

Comment: Kids and parents alike won't have any kind of fun in this weather!!! from Moraine, OH by Jen

Comment: Not good for little ones to be out in the rain. Friday would be a happier time for all. from Troy,Ohio by Shirley

Comment: at raning thry cancel for halloween night from dayton by helpling

Comment: Kids wait all year for this, don't make it more dangerous than necessary by sending them out in this weather. from Brookville by Linda

Comment: I don't think they should have it on oct 31 too many kidnappings for satanic rituals from dayton ohio by lisa

Comment: If people want to hand out candy, let them, if people want to take their own children out, let them. from Kettering, OH by Lauren

Comment: It is what it is. Make the most of it. Back in the day it was a privilige and you wern't catered to. We wouldn't change Christmas if it was 90 degrees. from Miamisburg, OH by Scott

Comment: There is no practical way to communicate a postponement, either to the homeowners or parents. Remember that some participants will travel from neighboring communities for a "hot" street. The concept of delaying into November is unpleasant. from Franklin by Dave

Comment: I have never understood what the big deal is. Parents do not want their kids to eat sugary food and many families end up throwing the candy away or sharing it with co-workers who do not want or need it either. What a waste of money, time, and effort. from Centerville by Sue

Comment: I think it is strange, silky and sad that city governments have anything to say about this. ohio is the only one of the many states I have lived in where that happens. Everywhere else you just trick or treat on Oct 31 during what ever hours you want to from Tipp City Ohio by Doug
