    I've been here 5 years. Not a one. So I don't even buy candy anymore. I'm on a busy street. Tonight I got 5 at once. All I had were one dollar bills. I gave them each a dollar. One says "That's not candy". I didn't kids actually did the trick or treat thing like we did anymore.

    It's almost 7 here and I've only had two little ones who came together. I buy a lot of full size candy every Halloween even though we only get a handful of kids. Watch, next year I won't buy any candy and it'll be a full crowd scene on the porch. :rolleyes:

    I don't get trick-or-treaters at my new place either, which is fine because at the old place my dogs went crazy on Halloween with all those costumed midgets ringing the doorbell. They just didn't know what to make of it. :snicker:

    Just as i finished typing my first post, I could hear kids arguing and screaming outside. The doorbell rings, my dog goes crazy, I open the door and there are 8 kids of all ages on the porch, dive bombing the candy bowl. A little girl no more than four years old grabbed two full sized Skittles and two full sized Snickers. Their parents were right there so natch I couldn't say "Uh uh, one a piece." :rolleyes:

    Was Halloween cancelled this year? Maybe 6-7 kids showed up. Seems to be less and less every year.

    One of the "kids" was a 30-something year old woman with white face paint for a costume. :rolleyes:

    We did pretty good this year. Got some new neighbors who really did their place up for Halloween and it seems like it brought the kids.
    I'm glad. We always end up with leftover candy. I was giving them handfuls.

    I've never lived in a house, or apartment where there has been even one Trick or Treater.


    I still buy candy, just in case. :evilgrin4:

    Towns and schools hold trick or treating events now. Safe, I was surprised.

    Exactly! At the old place, I had to hold them back while I doled out candy. The only holiday they hate more is July 4th. They really wig out on that day.

    Holy crap, my kid just made out like a bandit. I'm shocked this still exists.

    If you don't have candy, turn off your porch light.
    If your porch light isn't on, no one should be ringing your doorbell
    If they still ring they should be ignored. Maybe give them pennies, not dollars.

    Even houses with lights on were skipped when they didn't have pumpkins or decorations. Not tryin to bother anyone

    They all do trunk or treat now, which is gay and faggot. There is no magic in going car to car in a church parking lot. Kids are really missing out these days.

    I'm under the table with my dog on July 4, I hate loud noises. I'm deaf in one ear. The noises bang around my head.
