I ran into a woman going thru a clearance cart of bagged candy, and struck up a conversation with her. Of course, the conversation involved Halloween. I picked up a few bags of Tootsie pops and such, and told her that we usually have over 240 every year and I buy candy on sale when I can. I felt very sad when she said that they don't get any...none..so she just doesn't bother to decorate, and neither do the neighbors! Kinda depressed me..

PS: Don't drink three Capt/cokes and try to type..it isn't recommended, and is difficult! lol

I am on a semi-main road on a side with no sidewalk so I think our record is four small groups. :( On the plus side being on a semi-main road means more people see my efforts to decorate the outside of my house so I suppose it's a double-edged sword.

Good for you, keeping up the tradition!! Our whole neighborhood decorates (which is why we have so many kids ..they expect it and come in from everywhere) I would feel a huge sense of loss if I didn't get to do something!

Well we would decorate if we lived way out in the middle of nowhere that's just us. Also we have a big Halloween party every year which helps.

Your neighborhood is the type of place where the kids in our neighborhood goes to. We don't get any either but this place is packed with kids, go figure

when i was really little i used to go around my parent's neighborhood and then got older and went to another neighborhood with my friends that had more houses closer together. When Trick Or Treating it's all about the number of houses. Sometimes I wish I could go Trick Or Treating again without people looking at me like I'm a lunatic. Damn kids get to have all the fun(and free candy)!

Ha! Ha! D-Duck. I used to do something similar. I grew up in a complex with 450 townhouses and apartments. All very close together. I would speed trick-or-treat, go home and change costumes, then make another round of the complex. Some years I would do 4 costumes and 4 trips. I think my best haul ever was like... 5 pillowcases of candy?

The neighborhood I'm currently in is the epitome of "feast or famine" when it comes to TOT'ers. I live towards the back of the neighborhood, which sees a minimal amount of TOT'ers due to the fact that it seems the party is always in the front of the subdivision. Though our section has tons of kids, they all make their way up front to partake in Halloween festivities. We'll get a few, but our street seems to be an afterthought despite the strong effort put forth by the majority of residents to decorate, etc.

I'm moving elsewhere, though, so I don't know what to expect TOT'er wise in my new neighborhood. I figure, as long as I'm not out in the boonies or on a highway, the TOTer turnout shouldn't be too shabby.

Ask the neighbors when you move in...I always try to warn our new people about the volume (I also try to warn them about the metamorphosis of our house during that time)...lol
