It's 8:02 PM here and I haven't had a single one. Apparently the local children and their parents have colluded to make me eat all this candy I bought. Punk kids.

It's sort of depressing. I decide to stay home so I stay out of trouble, and nothing. Maybe on Monday I can slowly drive around the school and offer kids a ride if they take some free candy or something.

None, thank goodness.

I've been enjoying a bottle of wine.... Don't need some stinking freeloaders asking me for candy

I only got a few as I was walking by on the way home (I happened to be buying candy at the local pharmacy). At home, nobody came.

Since I'm classy as F* I'm doing the same. And mixing it with cranberry juice.

No chance it that going wrong!

This is where I can get into the helicopter parents ruining things for kids, I think less people do this tradition then before.
I know as a kid were out, alone at like 9/10 IIRC and the streets were boooming. I grew up in an awesome neighborhood. Was like a big rectangle of a housing track. We lived at the bottom and would work our way to the top and then zig zag back down.
Then my bro would empty his pillow case and go for round two.

Kids are pansies these days. They start at like 2pm and wrap it up by 6.

We didn't get a single trick or treater, guess I don't need a costume to scare all the kids away.

And all the fear mongering about what people do to the candy, gets parents all worried.

That is who the pansies are, those kids are out to get some candy, they are fearless!
Maybe even too fearless...

We usually only get one, maybe two. Our street isn't a big one for trick-or-treaters. That's OK though since we didn't take our son out this year. We had planned on it, but after an afternoon of him acting like a unmanageable, out of control idiot, we decided it would be safer not to take him out. If we can't rely on him to listen to his father when he's out in the dark, then it's too dangerous for him to go, especially since his Batman outfit is pure dark knight.

So we felt it wouldn't be fair to have trick-or-treaters come to the door after we decided we couldn't trust him to go out.

But, he did get to go to my workplace's Halloween, in-house trick-or-treat and carnival all dressed up yesterday, so he did get some candy and to dress up. Hopefully, he controls himself better next year and we can try again.

If I had known kids weren't showing up I wouldn't have put so many assault rifles in the candy bars. Gets expensive. Nothing is more delicious than milk chocolate wrapped around a nugatey Ar-15.

Ok that made me laugh!
Like legit out loud laughter.

I think you would need a good dentist after biting into a piece of that candy tho!

None....

My small village sponsored a very nice party in the rec/senior center with bands, pizza, games, candy etc.
The place was packed with kids and their parents. What a fantastic small community we have here on the banks of the Rio Grande; Native Americans, Hispanics and Gringos all gathered in the spirit of brotherhood, peace and community.

I've had over 200 until I finally decided to take the two youngest zombie hunting. We went through almost 500 pieces of candy. Probably have about 150 left, plus whatever the kids brought home.

Carloads of kids always target my neighborhood. Probably because most of the people who live here hand out premium candy... Heck, my kids had several full size candy bars and cans of soda!

Nah, I put warning labels on it (got to be responsible right?) and pass out a book of matches and a small can of gas so they can melt the chocolate off when they get home if they douse a blanket or pillow. I also include a bottle of Skittles flavored vodka that once drank can be used to collect the melted chocolate! Don't tell your parents, surprises are fun!

I'm pretty much an Eagle Scout, I plan ahead and whatnot. Have fun kids!

We had plenty of kids come by tonight. Surprising, really. We've had over a foot of rain in the last week here in TX. Nothing keeping these kids from getting candy.

We went through 6 jumbo bags of candy (from Sam's Club) in about 2 hours. That's giving 2 pieces to each kid...we get lots of trick or treaters here..
