    You use almanacs?

    You can probably just find it on the internet these days. No need for almanacs, imo.

    Is there a generally accepted start time for trick or treating? We want to take out little guy out but he is too little to be running around in the dark.

    He's too little to run around in the dark even if you're there with him?

    Yeah, I was confused by that too. What do you normally do in the winter when the sun goes down at 4:30? Never leave the house?

    As for timing, I would say that anytime after 5 is fair game.

    I agree that 5 is fine for very young kids. It's still kind of early for your typical ToTing bunch of kids (ages 6ish up to 12ish), which we usually start to see around 6.

    Man we got a lot more kids in our old neighborhood, I only bought 200 candy bars this year and with the rain I'm planning on having some nice leftovers and will be ending my month long sugar fast in style!

    The rain kept our numbers really low last night. Goose was really excited to hand out candy to the late arrives and so after about 8 PM kids that came to our house got 3-4 bars a piece.

    We got over 270. We ran out of candy at about 8 pm. Even with the lights turned off we had to ignore quite a few knocks for another 20-30 mins.

    Default Trick or Treaters?

    A former member of one of our old wards took their kids out and left a bowl of candy at the door while they were gone. They also hid a camera to watch what happened.

    The following ensued.

    Greed is a powerful vice. The hidden camera did a good job of capturing the essence of greed.

    Also, I've never understand why both parents need to take their precious little darlings trick-or-treating. Mrs. Meanie and I always divided up the duties so that one stayed home and manned the candy bowl while the other took the kids out.

    If you leave a bucket out front then it isn't steeling, I object to the title of the clip being "Halloween Theives".

    I didn't see a sign that says "take one only." I always give the kids 2 or 3 items to avoid judgement from the parents as being a tight wad. Even then kids aren't that excited to get two rolls of Smarties.

    Interminable. I have 1 child, a year from graduating from high school. Get away from my house.

    Total blackout and land mines have had little affect.

    We have had about 100 kids I’d say. Some older kids still coming by. We are in such a good neighborhood for trick or treaters — houses are close together and almost no car traffic.

    Same hear. Easily 150+. That also includes several parents who asked if they could have candy.

    Maybe 20 trick or treaters tonight. It was raining like crazy (1+ inches in an hour) which deterred most of them. My kids toughed it out and were richly rewarded since people were handing out multiple handfuls of candy due to the lack of trick or treaters.

    Default Trick or Treaters?

    Hundreds. Went through 120 large candy bars and another 3 bags of fun size. One of my favorite things about our neighborhood is how it lights up for Halloween. Dozens of houses with music and lights, hundreds of trick or treaters. Lots from other areas that come park and unload outside the gates and then walk our neighborhood. Many of our neighbors hate that, but I don't mind.
