    Our house is known for our halloween display. This year we had 750 trick or treaters. Amazingly that number is down, last year we lost count at 1030. We had enough candy for 1200 this year, so I have lots of extra.

    Well don't you know I bought a bunch of candy to give out and things fell thru with my son taking his daughter out. So grandpa & I took her and wasn't able to give out the candy.

    Good thing I bought what we like! LOL

    I had none, we don't have any small kids. We saw a couple of young teenage girls dressed up and I guess they were going to a party or something. Not too many kids of any age on our dead end street. Not alot of houses either.

    We live in a sub-division and had about 150. They were lined up from front door to the sidewalk, 25 at a time.ha. I bought at least 15 or 20 big bags of candy. Went right through it. But I had a really good time looking at costumes, while Husband watched TV. And all of the kiddos always said thank you. So nice. Barny

    We live in a subdivision city north of Houston -- we had less than 8 groups (2 or 3 kiddies plus parents each time) -- lots of good candy left over -- we were surprised that we had so few!!

    We live in a cute community called Verrado. My street is on a dark cul de sac so we put up some spotlights and had a little block party and also invited family. We went through 3 big bags of candy, but over on Main St. there were hundreds of kids. I walked around with my nephews and I've never seen anything like it. People drove their kids to the neighborhood. The Ghostbusters car was driving around passing out Twinkies. We enjoyed our little party so much that we are going to make it an annual event.

    We do trick or treating at our church, we call it Trunks of Treats, providing a very safe environment for the kids. We also do free hot dogs, games, crafts, we have a photographer who does portraits for free (for those in costume) . We had 500 trick or treeaters!

    We did not have any, most of our neighborhood does not give out candy. A few reasons, but most importantly the kids are attending church functions, or parties sponsored for them.. Just not safe out there anymore for our children.

    None, last year we had 2 . I didn't buy candy this year because I'd wind up eating it.

    50 at our house. There were several parties in our town, for kids attend. That is why the low number. In yrs past would have over 100, while my in laws living 6 blocks from us would have 200.

    Our whole complex is under reconstruction, raising the buildings 6 inches before we slip into the water! so...I usually get 10 or 12 kids every year, this year it was a big fat 0. We knew that was going to happen, but it did not stop my husband from buying a HUGE bag of candies.

    It was rainy so we only had maybe 35.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    We had, as usual, zero. There aren't any kids in our subdivision and the neighboring ones went to fall festivals. ALmost all churches in town had trunk or treat. You decorate your car and then line up in the church parking lot giving out treats from your trunk. The kids love it and it's a lot safer than going out on their own.

    This year I got to go out with my 3 GDs and we did a lot of walking between porch lights.I did notice there were not a lot of kids out tricker treating either. GDs were carrying pumpkin buckets and they were almost full after 2 hrs. My son and DIL were saying how much more they got as kids -almost a pillow case- when my brothers an me were kids we'd go home 3 times for fresh pillow cases.

    We had exactly 13. Up from last year's 12. I'm just so tickled -- we now live in a small development in SC after moving from Southern Maryland on a major highway. I would turn all the lights on to make the house look welcoming and sit by the front door, watch TV, and wait. No one came. I don't know how many years I did this. It was so sad. Like throwing a party and no one comes. But now I'm happy to have the trick or treaters!

    Although trick and treat isn't known in the netherlands we've had one group of three female students dressed up at our door.
    Sorry to say we didn't have any candy in the house.
    Some villages do have : "sint Maarten" on 11-11 where children come and sing a little song to collect candy

    We had a big fat 0! I used to love Halloween in the city where there were lots of kids trick or treating. I miss the fun of seeing all the little ones dressed up. Our dd lives just a few miles from us in a neighborhood with tons of kids and she didn't have any trick or treaters either. Guess everyone was going to the malls, churches, etc. I hope all the kids had a great evening even if they didn't knock on my door.
