Light Fright Night

November 1, 2006 at 2:40am By: Mr. Wilson Posted in 625 Elm Street

It was another light Halloween crowd at 625 Elm Street this year. I counted eight doorbell rings, totaling about, oh, twenty or so kids. I don’t get it; there are lots of kids in our neighborhood. Where the heck are they? Does everybody go to parties and organized trick-or-treating events these days, rather than doing the door-to-door thing?

Oh well, I’m not complaining. The Missus bought some pretty good candy this year, so I guess we’ll just have to take care of it before it goes bad. What a shame.

yeah we got about 5 groups.
Wanting to be the cool ones on the block, we gave out full bars to kids dressed up and small ones to the punk teens.
Last year was so much more bumpin.

This was our first Halloween in our current house.  We had fewer trick-or-treaters than our old place.  More candy for me!

The one year we left our porch lights on, we had one kid. I gave him almost a bagful of candy. Now we don’t bother. I get the feeling that kids from my neighborhood go to nicer neighborhoods to do their trick or treating.
