    Anyone get any trick-or-treaters?

    Haven't seen one in these parts in years.
    Just wondering if they still exist.

    Got maybe 30 so far, more are coming. That's why I'm hiding on the puter. :whistle:

    All depends on the town I think. We're a small community nestled in the mountains. Makes for an "everybody knows everybody" kinda thing and helps the parents feel ok letting their kids out. We don't even have street lights here! Can you IMAGINE?!

    Considering this isn't the best neighborhood, I'm surprised at all the little kids coming by this year. I've been giving out five different candies to each kid and money to those who are my neighbor's or friend's kids.

    But I'm already running out of candy so I might be passing out red potatoes pretty darn soon.

    Over 100. We are the subdivision of choice. 50 middle income homes on a safe road with lots of street lighting. It's a friggin magnet.

    Not yet. Though my wife has taken our kids out. Not many lights on in the neighborhood either.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    No trick-o'-treaters here. They don't tend to come around to my part of town. Meanwhile, my mother reports that lots of people came to her house in the town she lives in. It's a close-knit area where people know each other and don't tend to be afraid when they go out.

    I got none. I live in the barrio, however. I better go turn off my porch light, though, in case some late nighters come by. All I got is in-shell roasted peanuts.

    A total of 6, and only 2 had costumes.

    Our eldest came back w/ a massive motherlode, though. Saw the required "old people candy" in there, too.

    Money or FIVE different kinds of candy? Sweet! If I were a kid in your neighborhood I would of cycled by your house a few times with different costumes!

    Red potatoes could be some good carbs for a bike ride...

    0. Apparently crackheads don't take their kids trick-or-treating.

    OMG, I just got a group of 6! One of them was stoked to be getting In-Shell roasted peanuts!

    One of the little girls was giving me the WTF look.

    I'll take some Reese's!

    We had a few try to come to the door, but were chased away by the oldest and her friends. The neighbor across the street has decorated his house like Tim the Tool Man from Home Improvement did for X-mas. He went easy for the early (youngest ones), but as it got later, it got a bit more intense. Turned his garage into a spook house, fog machine, strobes, loudspeaker playing sinister laughter and the sound of a shovel digging in the dirt. Even chased people around with what sounded like a chainsaw.

    I always give money to the kids I know. Just a small handful of loose change each, probably about 2 bucks worth. They have enough candy.

    This is my third Halloween at my house, and this is the first year I had any trick-or-treaters. I had 3 little kids, all in very cute costumes.

    Edit: I just got another one, so I have a total of 4 tonight.

    We're pretty rural here, with no street lights and many longish driveways. Not at all conducive to trick or treating. Instead, the local elementary school hosts a "trunk or treat" night, a Halloween party which is apparently very well attended. So, no trick or treaters tonight, which in a way is good, because I've no candy and can only offer them beer.

    I've only had trick or treaters once since I moved here in 2002. That year, a group of neighbor teens came by and they'd obviously each put a lot of effort into their costumes so it was fun to see. They came back about 15 minutes later to tell me I was the only person on the street who'd opened the door to them even though they could see TVs flickering through the curtains. They were the last trick or treaters we've had.

    I can see the value in the school event, but I kinda miss the trick or treaters.

    We get 400-600 trick or treaters each year. It's pretty much nonstop from 5 to 9.

    Same here, we live in a dense neighborhood (all the houses are 15'-16' Wide) so we get a ton of kids, I went through about 5 of the 6 bags of candy I bought this year. I also like the little kids the best. Besides it's my birthday, and this what I do for it every year, then when we run out of trick or treaters or candy (whichever comes first) we go down into Fells Point for dinner and people watch

    About 30. One of my favorite activities is seeing the costumes.
