Unintended DST Consequences

I wasn't a fan of extending Daylight Saving Time into November. I became even less of one when I discovered that, because my kids have to get to bed at a reasonable time, we would be starting our trick-or-treating in daylight. Daylight makes it very difficult to determine if anyone is home and giving out treats.

Thankfully, after about 20 minutes, we started to see porch lights, and it finally started to get dark, and then the real fun began. (After that, the 4-year-old was off and running to every house with a porch light on, until she finally got tired and announced that she wanted to be carried back home.)
