Zero.. lots in our neighborhood are big and there are no street lights.. plus there were several city wide activities going on, a haunted house, a party in the park, and trick or treating at the mall. Probably safer but I do miss seeing the kids all dressed up.

At home only about 10. Our town has a "treat street" where the kids go to the businesses after school, so by time they finish that and go the the party that the nursing home puts on, not many do the neighborhood walk anymore. We did have about 400 at the office, however.

A whopping 5. We're always disappointed, would love to get a lot of kids!

I had maybe 10 groups through. I was kind of disappointed... most of my subdivision is filled with kids so I don't know where they all went... probably about half of the groups were people that didn't live in my neighborhood.

I can't even imagine!!! Door bell started ringing at 5:20pm and it didn't stop until 9:12pm (which I gave the last two kids the rest of the candy and turned out the lights).

Halloween was a bummer in my neighborohood, I had 7 kids. And what was with my next door neighbor, u dress up your home a month in advance and then dont give out treats!!! But ur kid goes out to collect....not impressed.

11/1/12 11:21 A

Wasn't going to be able to afford to buy any candy this yr ( first time ever ), but I managed to buy 1 big bag of 100 piece's of stuff like milk duds, whoppers, sucker's and reese's piece's at Kmart, and used my points. It only cost me about $2. My DH told me to not buy anything, but I just had too. Well I should have listened. Only had 1 group of 4. I was so bummed out! My daughter is 24 now, and I love seeing kids in their costumes. Now I don't know what to do with all this candy ? ugh!!!

7 neighbors, my 3 kids, & associated parents - fun evening even for just a few folks.

11/1/12 10:57 A

0... which was very depressing. It was the first year I could give out candy, and had candy to give out, and no one showed. I debated on chucking it at people walking past the apartment, just to get it out. I may just start hiding it in my coworkers offices... just so it's not at my house.

None, I live out in the country and even though I have neighbors even with my lights and flood lights on no one can see my house so I don't get any trick or treaters. I miss it actually because for 17 years my family and I lived in a mobile home court with over 200 houses in it and we got all sorts of people.

I am not sure. I put out a bowl of candy, I didn't want to keep opening and closing the door. For fear the dogs would get out. Someone took my entire bowl of candy. And I hope the little goblin gets a terrible tummy ache.

I sat in my front room from 4 pm to 7 pm and the kids kept coming. I don't know how many, but I had a basket full of candy bars and by 7 pm there was only a handful left. I used to live in a secluded area and we never had any trick or treaters there...I am glad to live in a normal neighborhood now, alive with families and kids.... emoticon

None, we usually get about a dozen or so but not a single one this year. I brought the candy to work.

I had 0. I live in New York and we're still recovering from Hurricane Sandy. The mayor sort of hinted to people to not go out unless absolutely necessary.

We only had about 20. We live on a dead end street, so not many walk down our street.

None in the ten years I've been here. Living at the stables on the outskirts of town, go figure! But my beloved brought home a couple of small bags, just in case. Dark chocolate kisses! I love that man!!! emoticon

10/31/12 10:58 P

There was nobody for the first hour after dark. I forgot to turn on the porch light,(but had turned on the floodlight). The next hour, even with both lights, there were only 3 groups.

I won't eat the leftover candy. I indulged already. Don't want anymore.
