So, what is “Trunk or Treat” anyway? I am glad you asked! “Trunk or Treat” is an event that happens around halloween and is super popular in many communities. Many elementary schools, churches, local businesses, and community centers use trunk or treats an alternative or in addition to traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating. People decorate the trunks of their cars and gather in a parking lot or other designated areas to give candy and treats to children who go from car to car, similar to how they would go from house to house in traditional trick-or-treating.

Many people choose to go with a theme for their car and go as elaborate or as simple as they want. I love a good theme, and this year, the overwhelming response when my family took a vote was Super Mario Bros!
