Does anyone else keep track of how many kids come to your door on Halloween? I've done it for years.


First ones showed up about 6:30pm. By 7:00 the count was a little over 50.


Final tally for the night (no bullshit).... 106!!!


Slightly less than last year... 116, iirc...

0.




we live off Union Hill Road, up a 150 yard gravel driveway, wooded, no lights on teh driveway. Zero guests, just the way we like it.

Zero.

I did leave the house soon after it got dark, so there could have been some..

0 jonathon and i almost ran over a few dozen kids though
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 9:07:32 PM EST
One group of 3. Didn't get here till just after 9.

15 years ago we'd get 60-100 kids on Halloween. Times sure have changed.

About 15ish.
One little girl was accompanied by a smoking-hot MILF.

12?? Halloween is quickly becoming an adult holiday. I also cringe when holidays like this come on weekends. It turns into amateur night; don't want to be on the roads.
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 10:32:46 PM EST
None,
We went out in the boonies for a party, but by the frazzled look the dog had upon our return, I'm guessing every kid in the neighborhood rang the doorbell.
Link Posted: 10/31/2009 10:58:19 PM EST
We had about 100 give or take a few. We definitely had more last year............. now to get the candy outta the house so it can't temp me with it's sweet siren song.
Except the Starburst ––––- those are MINE!

We got about a dozen or so......I think they all went to PatchO's place....they went through 6 bags of candy. and that was before I got there.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 3:57:35 AM EST
I didn't get any. I guess some parents are smart enough to teach their kiddles to stay away from creepy old men in rv's. Most of what I saw were at least 16 y/o "children". I took my grandkids to a mall. Never did that before. It was kinda fun. Great watching them have a ball. Good people watching, too. Sorta like a Walmart, only everyone was a greeter.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 4:09:00 AM EST
We got one group of three age appropriate kids dressed up and another group of my children's heathen, teen friends who we gave candy to anyway. It is my luck that I got two big bags of stuff no one in my family likes so we wouldn't eat it all before Halloween

I dunno, let me go check the punji pit and I'll get back to yah
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 6:38:01 AM EST
These kids don't know how to have a good time on Halloween anymore.
We used to go through at least five dozens eggs, EACH!
Damn good time.
Once in a while one or two of us would get caught by the cops, not me. We'd be watching from a distance while the cops made them hold their arms out to their sides and the cops would then "pat" them down. Then they were free to go. Of course they were standing there dripping in egg goo from all the broken eggs in their pockets. Cops were laughing their ass off as they drove away.

0. More for me to eat that way.

We've never had trick or treaters. Come to think of it, even the girl scouts don't come round to sell cookies anymore.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 8:54:53 AM EST
35-40. It was slow this year. I have a lot of leftover candy!
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 8:56:06 AM EST
For the 19th consecutive year we had 0, and I'm beginning to think that rumor that my wife heard about the crazy guy who shoots his guns at all times of the day and night and has people bring all sorts of dead animals to his house might have something to do with it.

I like nervous neighbors.....
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 9:04:37 AM EST
Four.

Had probably 30 last year.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 9:23:31 AM EST
Zero.

We've had 3 in the 6 years we've lived here. There aren't enough houses to make it worth their while to wander down the dark road and chance running into the anti-zombie measures.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 10:13:17 AM EST
Over 250.

First Halloween in this house.

Neighbors told us to expect a lot. They weren't kidding.

All of the street parking was even filled up.

2. I live in the sticks now sorta. neighbor kids from across the road.
Hit 480 around 1999 when we lived in town. Made a candy run and still ran out. lights out at 2130 that night. We always got 350-400 while living there.

Finally dawned on me that it was coming from the back yard. Went outside, had a discussion with the male half about manners and took the gal in out of the storm. She left this morning settled a little better. Boyfriend spent a couple hours beating on the door, ah for the good old days. Moonchild called the popo around 0200 after I explained how the law views opening the door to a potential target hostile. Dunno if they showed but the party next door got real quiet an hour later and he did quit knocking. Then the drunken yoots hit the street in front and started a 15-20 person fight. I checked on it but my car was parked in the rear of the house and most of them deserved the asswhuppings.

I hate this town.

we got a shit ton of kids in my neighborhood....in the five minutes between getting home from work to leaving to take our beggars trick or treating we had at least thirty kids come by....

Zero. Like usual. We are just too far off the road.
The 11 no trespassing signs don't help either.

Haha. Usually my wife buys a bag 'just in case'. So then we have the 'just in case bag' and all the kids' treats. Usually lasts us about a year or so. This year there was no 'just in case' bag, so the kids' treats will have to last them until next year.

Does trouble just follow you around? Good thing the boyfriend didn't feel a little more possessive, or the GF have a change of heart. Remember the rule –– don't get involved in a domestic dispute, you'll end up with both of them on top of you. Just calls the cops and let them sort it out.

0 A half mile private gravel road then a 300 yd gravel driveway all of it 10 miles from town does not result in many visitors.

Yes, it always finds me. like attracts like. He was a punk and I could pick her up with one hand. Fairly certain he wouldn't want to tussle in the stairway down to Moonchild's apartment, in the dark, while drunk, with me and a knife. She did call the cops. They didn't show.

That practically makes us related. I got my first stink-finger in Burien, a few short years later.


Also in Burien... Hmmm... A small contingent...

6. We moved from the center of McCleary to the edge of it. Only kids of friends showed up. Oh well, that made it easier to get drunk, with few interruptions. I don't think the wife was amused, but what the fuck..

I am in the middle of a pretty crowded residential neighborhood, but I still don't need signs to get the job done.

It stated really warm later into the year then usual. So the leaves took longer to turn and fall this year. I have 3 trees in my front yard, and this year 95% of their leaves fell off last week, before halloween. Combine this with the fact I have not yet cleaned up some falled tree limbs from our last big windstorm, the front yard and sidewalk looked like the place had been abandoned and was a haunted house. Branches across the walkway, no visible conrcrete path because of thousands of leaves...

It did the job.
