42. And it's over by now.

Woman down the block said she had 200. Which is possible. We live on a cul-de-sac, and three of our four neighbors had their lights out, which combines to discourage some trick-or-treaters.

We've got a shitload of candy left. I'm gonna weigh 400 pounds by Friday.

The key is this... Have them keep a big bag nearby to dump their candy in. Then go to each house with an empty bag. (you might throw an apple, toothbrush and pencil in there, just for effect) Then, before you ring the doorbell, it's, "Ok kids... try to look sad!"

Not that it sounds like yours needed it.

My freshman year we got hit up. Had a mom chew us out for not giving out candy, when we didn't know kids hit up dorm rooms and didn't have anything to give them anyway. Well this mom was chewing on us and my roommate says "how about i give your kids a beer and frozen burritto bc that is all we have."

4 until I caught the neighborhood cat digging in my trash. Scared the shit out of some kids cuz I grabbed a potato as it was the only thing I could find and chucked it at the cat and drilled the wall of the garage. Poor kids were walking up the sidewalk next to the garage and all of a sudden WHAM.

About 10 here.

Whatever happened to Halloween? I remember growing up as a kid going from house to house raking in the candy. Would always have to stop at home and dump my bags a couple times because they got too full. After the night was over I easily had 4 or 5 bags full of candy.

Now, it seems like half of the porch lights are off, and half of the ones that are on, nobody answers the door. And whats up with the ones that only give out one piece of candy? Listen here you fuggin candy dictators, dig your fuggin grubby paws in that damn bowl and put a damn hand full in the kids bag.

But while I was at the bar around 7 pm there were some kids knocking at the door. Thought it was strange for kids to come to a place of business trick or treating.

I didn't have any. My wife was with her sister and two kids and I wa sout until 9:30 on business.

I ususally do love trick or treaters to come around. We moved into a knew location two years ago and
the first Halloween we didn't have a single treater.
Our location is the main reason why we didn't have any.

I think we had about 50.

Results from the kids (5 bags o candy)

14 year old: 1/4 pound of candy
12 year old: 7 pounds of candy (I am serious)
8 year old: 5 pounds of candy
4 year old: 3.5 pounds of candy
3 year old: 3.5 pounds of candy.

The two little ones really got what Halloween was all about and spent 1.5 hours ringing bells for daddy's candy fix.

Almost 20 lbs of candy. :)

KC Kings
11-01-2005, 11:43 AM
We had over 200, when my wife quit counting. We had a ton of candy and little packs of play-dough we gave out, then when I got back home from taking my kids around the block we used up most of their candy giving out to other kids. They are 3 and 5, and don't need all that candy anyway.

We live off of 291 and I-35 in Liberty, and the streets were lined with cars from people coming to our neighborhood to trick-or-treat. There were about 25 houses that went all out with haunted houses in the drive way, fake body parts cooking on a grill, and a driveway bonfire with a cauldron of apple cider over the fire that they poured out for all the kids. This was our first year here so I wasn't prepared, but I will be hitting the clearance racks this week to give the neighbors some competition next year.

That's BS.

The children are no more safer today then they were twenty, thirty years ago. The only difference is that we have grown to be to damn protective. It's like Carlin says in one of monlogues, "...Kids today have to wear a helmet for everything. Shit, I bet they even have helmets for jerking off."

I agree with Saggy's statement: What happened to Halloween?

Everyone dressed up and went door-to-door. Nobody had an issue with what you were dressed up as. There was no such thing as a politically-correct costume. But, the neighborhood was alive with kids running around and you had contests as to who could gather up the most candy. Despite the kids protests, some of the parents volunteered to walk around. They would stand on the sidewalk as you raced up to the door with your friends, and as your neighbor opened the door the parents would wave to each other, and the neighbor would comment on everyone's costumes and pretend they didn't know it was you, "Oh my, is that Kenny Smith under there? Why, that's a great costume, Kenny!"

It was fun.

It's a damn shame that we have become so protective of everything. It broke your heart to hear of a kid who was hit by a car 'cause they were running across the street and didn't see the car underneath their poorly designed masks. You were told never to eat any foods that wasn't wrapped or packaged properly. You were told to stay with your friends and the chaperone.

It's nothing special...

But today- you can't dress up as a witch for you offend the Wiccans.

Whatever.

It's fuggen sad. And it's the parents fault. It's our litigious society. It's our own ignorance. It's our overly-protective agenda and it's ruining the fun for the kids. Who the ***** goes to the school to trick or treat? That's not fun.
