Trick or Treat Etiquette with Elle and Maggie

With Halloween just around the bend, it's time to revisit some of the essential rules of etiquette for Trick or Treating. To assist us in this lesson, I have enlisted the services of two veterans of the Trick or Treat circuit in Portland, Oregon, to show you how to score big candies and big points in your neighborhood. So, without further adieu, here are Elle and Maggie with Dos and Taboos:

For those who don't know Elle and Maggie, they are the two delightful daughters of my blogging colleague Mindy Lockard. You can follow their adventures in pursuit of gracious living here.

Thank you for being such a wonderful host to Elle and Maggie, Peter! They are honored to get dressed-up and share their secrets with the Crane Insider! From the Lockard family to yours, wishing everyone a safe and happy Halloween! Best, Mindy

Elle and Maggie,
Thank you for the trick or treating tips. My favorite tip was just taking one piece of candy.

Dear Henry:

Believe it not, if you only take one piece of candy, many times the folks who answer the door will insist that you take some more. Good luck and have fun on Halloween.

I love the examples and non-examples! Very creative! It would be fun to watch with children. :)
