Our town's "trunk or treat" is done by the local police department.. the idea being that parents who are uncomfortable encouraging their children to approach a stranger's home and take candy from them will be more comfortable with getting it from the police.
it serves a couple purposes, really.. the households that don't like to open their doors to strangers can still participate, and then children can still participate even when their parents are less willing to let them actually approach houses.
I think it's a little silly, and i hope to always be an authentic halloween household.. but i get it.
