    Since we have been in this house we have had a rather large number of trick or treaters. We usually run out of candy/toys (cheapy plastic spider rings, gold coins, worms, etc.

    This year........ we had under 30 kids. I still have most of the candy/toys and I bought only half what I have in the last few years. There were hardly any kids or cars on the streets last night....

    Really weird.

    Did anyone else have a slow night? Or were you packed with the little 'ghouls'??

    My count was up this year, about 65. Two years ago it was down to about 30. 10 years ago ran about 100.

    I think most kids had partys to go to. Our neighborhood gets carloads from other neighborhoods. We usually get over 200, but last night it was really quiet. We had to put signs out saying 'SICK" I didn't want to give away germs to a bunch of little kids, so we had Zero too.

    I've never gotten any at home, but who trick or treats along a major 4 lane highway with a turn lane in the middle?

    At school, got none down here either... but who trick or treats though apartmetments/condos? There were boat loads of kids in the townhome-mansion part of the place out here though.

    We had one family with 5 kids. We live far enough out that nobody comes by unless they know us. I was expecting 15 kids from people at work and neighbors, but none of them showed up. Not sure what happened.
