NBR: Trick?

Trick or Treat in my city started about 40 minutes ago and i've had no trick or treaters.... I'm really bummed because this is the first halloween in my house and i bought a ton of candy!


Re: NBR: Trick?

  • We didn't get our first one until after 30 mins. in.  Last year we had 60. This year so far only 32.   I get the bummed feeling you are having.   Hopefully you get some!

  • I feel your pain.  Last year I sat outside with a bowl of candy for two hours.  The only trick or treaters I got during that time were the next door neighbor's kids who finally took pity on me and came to chat.

     Hopefully you'll get a couple before the night is over.

  • Ours is over.  I had a bowl of candy but we didn't get a single trick or treater...:-(

  • Well we ended up with 39, but someone stole half of our pumpkins and smashed them on our neighbor's sidewalk  =(   Including my pumpkin I made into an owl.  =(

  • I got one kid who was around 8 or 9 NOT WEARING A COSTUME! (Still gave him half the bowl of candy)

  • I had 6 trick or treaters, and they were all nieces and nephews.
  • I probably had 60-70, but that was way less than I usually get. Good thing I saved my favorite candy til the end. Now we have lots of yummy candy left over.

  • But I also noticed that the costumes were way less effort this year too. Tons of kids weren't dressed up. One girl wore a tshirt that said "This Is My Costume". That's cheating!

  • We had 5 kids total.  It's so strange because we live in a big subdivision, right around the corner from an elementary school.

  • We had about two dozen. We also had one adult woman who walked up with her dog in costume and asked for candy. I gave it to her only because I was so friggin' confused.

    We can hear the middle school from our front yard and there was a lot of noise coming from there. My friend (who has lived in our neighborhood for about two years; we just moved in) said more and more places are doing "safe Halloween" parties and events. She said every year the trick-or-treat crowd gets smaller and smaller. Sad
