    I”m not into Halloween, but I know my daughter and son-in-law do take the girls (ages almost 2, 4, and 6) out trick or treating to families and friends. They also like family-friendly movies, like some of the ones you have listed here.. It’s fun to see old classics like Caspar and Charlie Brown listed! I haven’t heard of, or seen, many of the newer ones.
