I usually have around 20 little ones, and that’s what I had tonight. Here’s seven of them…..(a little skunk is hiding behind the blurry bear in the front). I gave them all a handful of candy but still have too much left over. It’s been a cold, wet night here so I don’t expect anymore. Lucky you, Bon, to have so many trickers and treaters. :) And lucky you, Bunting, that you goblins included you gradsons. :)

Went from over 200 a few years ago to about 20 this year. Who knows? Cold weather? Scary manikin near the front door? More O’Henry Bars for me. LOL

no kids here … even when I ran a preschool in my home I had to bribe the kids to make the trek to my house!
back on the farm (growing up) we would get over a hundred kids … oh those were the days, driving for miles to connect with friends/relatives for the yearly visit. Fudge for the driver…...

We had 5 girls all at once, and that was it! One of the little girls was a Muslim and she didn’t have permission to be with, but she was anyway (gotta love the rebels). The other girls all had bags, but not the Muslim girl, she was happy to get her treat in her hand. Otherwise no visits, so now we have a lot of candy bars for our grand kids. Halloween isn’t such a big deal here. Also, this year they tried to arrange Halloween parties for the kids instead of the traditional trick or treating. It’s only the last few years that Halloween has been practiced here.

Door-to-door trick & treating certainly is not what it used to be here either. Maybe a good thing….for kids, for parents and also for neighbours. Less worry about what the kids may run into. Community parties are being held instead.
But I miss having all the little ones come to the door…..it is one of the few times I get a chance to greet neighbour’s children. Being friendly with the neighbourhood kids goes a long way to discouraging unfriendly behaviour as they get older. :)

Here in Australia as much as it is pushed on us Halloween has never really caught on. Some years ago we use to get a few kids trick or treating, but not for a while. Might be the 2 dogs who knows.
