How Many Trick or Treaters Did You Get?

I had two. A coworker had 1. Other numbers floating around 40 (coworker), low 80's (brother). The all time high was another coworker of mine who lives less than a mile away.

550. Yes, 550 children.

Location, Location.

I had none. I live on a deadend street in a rural area.

Didn't count them, but we get more college students, than children, it seems. {Being right next to a campus} :-) It's really cute to see these young adults, trying to dress themselves up somehow, and the fun they have going door-to-door. :-)

As to count, it kind of remains constant. Not all that many, but enough that you *have* to give out candy. :-)

Gentle hugs,
"November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring."
