    Did anyone else have a significant drop-off in their number of trick-or-treater's last night? Ours were down about 85% from past years. It was eerily quiet for Halloween. [​IMG]

    Actually, we had about the same as last year, a grand total of 8. Last year I think we had 9. The year before that was like a record low of 2.
    I happen to live on a hill which most kids don't want to walk up. (The idea of working for your candy is lost upon this generation!) Plus the fact that even if you DO walk up our hill, our road is a sidestreet off this hill and out of the way of any thru traffic.

    From what I could see, trick or treating was way down in Manhattan. Not surprising.

    I think the explanation for the decline in trick or treaters is obvious.
    Anthrax in your childs bag anyone, sure it's potentially deadly, but I hear it tasts like pixy stick dust.

    We had a significant number of "visitors" last night. I live in a small town with a large hispanic population and they were out in DROVES..... even banging on the door after the lights were out and candy was gone.....
    The following is not a racist statement... just an observation.
    The hispanics were the larger percentage of trick or treaters last night with the other percentage being blacks. No whites came to our door.... (we live in a predominately white neighborhood). We gladly welcomed and treated all the same. I noticed that over half the visitors were grown kids and after giving handfuls of candy to all, a group of blacks still walked by my vehicle and pounded it even though I was only 10 feet away and watching. This was a group that wasn't even dressed for halloween. I find it sad that grown kids are out for a dual purpose.... the candy and the whatever damage they can get away with.

    Halloween was dead over here in the U.K.
    It has never been as big as in the USA which is a real shame but we usually have a fair share of trick or treaters. This year there were 3, yes 3.
    I would love to be in the USA for Halloween
    Regards,
    Ricky

    We got a few this Halloween... One thing I noticed was a disturbing trend of not knocking on the door. What is up with that? I could hear the group getting closer to the door & chatting with each other, then going away. I would open the door, & tell each group "If you don't knock, you're not likely to get candy."
