I’m currently still waiting for one… any one… lol it’s nearly 7pm and I have enough candy for about 100 kids… needless to say if i get any cute little ghosts or gobblins, they’ll have enough candy for the next couple years… I probably should have checked with the neighbours to see if kids come around, i just assumed it was a nice size neighbourhood just outside of town with houses that are super close together, it would be prime trick or treating realty back home…
I was so excited to give out candy tonight too =( Oh well! lesson learned lol

Last year I don’t think we got more than 10, and we live in a nice gated community with lots of families! We’ll see this year. I didn’t buy a lot of candy.

Not a single one! Houses are on 2 or so acre lots here and very far set back from the street.

Zero. We live in a condo building that doesn’t have any kids except little babies.

To share a friend’s story, though, he just told me his wife bought three huge bags of candy from costco because their neighbor went through 50 POUNDS of candy last year! They live in Austin, TX. That has to amount to hundreds of kids!

For the past 3 years, we were living in a house on a crescent in a new-ish suburb. There were lots of young families, so we were easily getting 150+ kids. It was crazy – non-stop from 5-10!!
In a new city this year, but don’t expect nearly as many kids, as we are kind of out of the way now and more downtown, than in a residential community.

We purchased 80 full-size candy bars this year and I can pretty much guarantee that they will be gone by the end of the night. Our neighborhood is very walkable and there are sidewalks connecting to another neighborhood in the area, so we get tons of kids.

I live in a downtown-ish (midtown I guess) neighbourhood, with A LOT of kids. I have one of those counters (you click it) and last year we had over 200. I’m not expecting nearly as many tonight as it’s pouring rain here, but we will still get a lot. Even if it’s snowing, the kids still come around. This is Canada, after all

I grew up on a county highway and we never got trick or treaters. Now that I live in an apartment…I still don’t get any trick or treaters. Even though no one came last year FI still insisted on buying candy just in case. I made sure it was stuff we’d actually eat (no HFCS).

In our current neighborhood we don’t get many, if any, because we live out in the country and most of the neighbors are far away or don’t have young kids. When we move to our new neighborhood in town I really hope we get a lot! I love little kids and I love Halloween. 🙂 Candy is pretty great, too.

It comes and goes.
Usually, at the end of the season, I buy out all of the full-size candybars from my work, for a super cheap price [6/$1]. The years I do this, I get TONS of kids. We live on a dead end, so we normally wouldn’t expect that many. But once a few kids came by, BAM! Ton’s of them!
Last year, we were unable to do this because there weren’t any left when I went to buy them. We got around 15 kids.
This year, I’m back to full size candy bars, and plan to get wailed on.
And we’ll be putting up our new inflatable halloween “house”.
Here’s a picture from when we had it at our annual haunted house this past year!

None 🙁 I was super excited to hand out candy last year (first Halloween in our new place) and not a single kid came. So I expect the same this year. Didn’t buy candy this time.

21-30ish, I think… Our trick or treat zone is from 5-7 and the previous two years I’ve been here it’s kinda quiet. Of course, FI and I pick up the slack and take care of any unclaimed candy.
I do have a rule – all “OMG YOU ARE THE CUUTEST KID EVAR” kids get three pieces.

We got about 25 kids last year. We live in a neighbourhood with lots of kids but we are on a cresent across from the grocery store, so most kids from the middle of the neighbourhood don’t come down to our street. Oh well, more candy for me and DH!

I live on a main road that has TONS of neighborhoods off of it, so no one comes to my house, they all stay in the neighborhoods, which is safer so that’s ok. My parents though.. I’m pretty sure their neighborhood is a breeding ground! Trick-or-Treating is from 6-8, we always run out of candy by 7… and my mom usually buys about 15 bags of candy. We did a rough count this year & we have over 400 pieces.. and she has a very strict one piece per kid rule. So I’d say we get easily 300-400 kids, more if we didn’t run out of candy! I love going over to help hand out candy though, it’s the best!
Weather might be a factor this year though.. it’s warm (around 65) but it’s going to rain all night
