Are there many treaters?

Page 2 of 2  


I agree. It's a socialist's holiday if there ever was one. I used to get insulted when we got turned away as kids. Now there are too many crazys to be knocking on anyone's door.
I was out of town for 6 months and got back the day before halloween. I close my shutters before I go away. So, they all knew I was gone and for how long. My lights were out and 2 of them still knocked. Buying candy is not high on my list after driving 1200 miles.
They should all go to a controlled enviroment like you said.

Wait--did I miss something? Are you saying that the government gives out the candy? That's the only way I can make it work out to socialism.
Otherwise, it's a completely free transaction. The kids "earn" the candy by wearing costumes and walking around the neighborhood.

I got the same as the last 4 or 5 years, none. I'm out in a very rural area, most homes are on 3 to 7+ acres, sometimes also separated by cow pastures. My driveway is 1/10 mile long and one hell of a workout to walk up.
Now you made me hungry.

My neighbor says it was the rain that kept them away. IIRC I trick or treated in the rain when necessarly.

I had a couple dozen come by. It wasn't as many as I had hoped, but I still found a couple to keep.

I kept the house dark this year, and went out dog walking with a friend during peak T or T time...
Nice weather here tonight in W Los Angeles. I think there were more treaters out than I can ever remember, and I'm 55 and grew up in the area.

Here in the western mountains of NC we had exactly zero. We even "decorated" a tree in front of the property with a bunch, 35 or 40, of orange pumpkins and lighted it. But, there are only 3 houses occupied in the subdivision right now. I wonder how the new people are doing in our old house. We heavily decorated with mechanical and pneumatic scary thing, lighting, and many channels of audio. We've had as many as 800. Two years ago, it rained the entire night and we had about 300 umbrella toting kids.

There were more (220) here than last year (154). Not as many teenagers. I ran out of cookies but had enough candy.
