Halloween was a big deal in the neighborhoods where I grew up in the seventies and eighties. I would be out trick-or-treating for hours and come home with a pillowcase stuffed with candy. Participation has declined in recent years for all the reasons mentioned above but there are still some active neighborhoods. It kind of depends on where you live. My parents dont usually get any trick-or-treaters where they live but my neighborhood has a good turnout.

I loved trick-or-treating when I was a kid and that is why now that I am an adult I do my part to keep the tradition alive by putting my pumpkins out on the doorstep and being around all evening to hand out candy bars to the kiddies.

You tell your child "no," because they're imagining the Puritan vision of a witch, complete with pointy black hats, broomsticks, and curses. When they're old enough to understand, they'll figure out nuances like Wiccans, who, indeed, call themselves "witches," but are nothing like the archetypical "witch."

You would be surprised the depth of understanding of a seven-year old, both in understanding a caricature (the Puritan witch) and other beliefs or faiths. While we have not explained the nuances of Wiccan beliefs, our seven-year old can easily understand that witches (those following Wicca belief) do not honor God.
