Busier here than in many years. My wife just refilled the candy bowl for me. Must be the warm, dry weather (54F).



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

It was a good year here in Indy too. I even had a group of teenagers (yes, those unpredictable creatures) who did a rap song and dance on my porch and actually said "thank you," Must have had about 50 kids.

We had more than last year but still only 60-70. Here's the wife handing out the goods:

And a great mask. It changed colors. Was pretty freaky...

We've had about 8 kids so far. Mild evening, very light sprinkles.

Not one has said, "trick or treat." Now it's "Happy Halloween." All good, though.

My tally for the past three years.

2014
Cold & windy, 33º high, 25º low with 40mph gusts
39 kids

2015
Cold with heavy rain
22 kids

2016
Fair and warm with temp about 54º
48 kids.

We have had 70+ kids in years before the official numbers of the past three. A number of teens this year, and all were polite. Most of the teens were escorting small kids. I assume they were their siblings.

I had to laugh at a few of the comments.

"WOW! Full size Kit Kat"
"You have a beautiful house!"
"You gave out big bars last year, didn't you?" Me: Yes, for the past 20 years. Kid looked at me with awe!

Yup. A fun Halloween! thumbs up

It's been raining lightly from time to time. Just had the first batch of five at 6:30 pm.

Had about 40 last year up to 9:30 pm damp but almost no rain during the prime hours. All the later kids were high school.

No problem with teenagers - surly or otherwise - if they're costumed. Much rather they be celebrating Halloween by Trick or Treating than by participating in some alternative, and most likely negative, activities.

I make them say the magic phrase before they get anything. Amazing that I have to prompt so many of them to say it.

36 kids so far, but it's probably done. That's more than we've had for several years.

We had a noticeable uptick here in a suburb north of Chicago. It was fun. Almost ran out of candy.

Visitors dropped to nothing after 8:30 pm. I guess parents got tired of getting wet. Got at least half the candy left. sad smiley

hood is always quiet, so we went to friends instead. Busy, but not as much as last year. Steady drizzle and monday night prob didnt help.

Wife and I wore name tags, mine said "misery" hers said "company".

We had over 200+ last night. Starting at 4pm. Ending at around 8 when it was pitch black outside. They come in packs. The little kids are cute. Very polite. Shy. Hesitant. Picking candy from the bowl delicately. And saying thank you.

The teens come later in the night in packs of 8-10. Like wild feral pigs at the trough. smiley-shocked003

They're the ones that get the soy sauce packets...

We got nobody, even though I saw several packs of kids while taking my son around the neighborhood. Our street has about 25 houses, but only a handful had porch lights on. Next street over, almost every house had lights on. Wife said we aren't giving out candy next year and will instead go to the big party a few streets over.
