    I love Halloween

    So far I have seen a couple cats, a ballerina, a couple monsters, and other silly things. All generally normal grownups.

    It makes a nice bit of craziness on a Thursday.

    Who needs to wait for Halloween to look at strange creatures when you have Walmart and your local DMV office.

    I got 6 inches of snow in my yard and it's going to be below 10F by the time ToT starts at my house. The last thing I need is to be opening my door for pre-pubescent beggars all night.

    We're going out to dinner!

    I wore a costume to work today but ended up being escorted out of the office by security. They never told me that wearing only a trenchcoat and flashing people was deemed to be inappropriate.

    Bozeman, MT. We averaged 10 new residents each day this past year so you may as well come join in the fun too. I still love it here but the growth is quite noticeable.

    I really liked Halloween when the kids were little. Now that they are grown up I hope for rain on Halloween so I don't have to answer the door. Does that make me a bad person?

    Given that it’s Halloween, are you sure they were security? You know the body cavity search is not standard procedure, right?

    She has to write ghost on her costume because she used a kitchen trash bag.

    You'd be lounging in your underwear all day too if your acting career was dead.

    We had roughly 100 kids at the door tonight, based on candy consumption. Oddest thing though, and I'll grant that it was cold and rainy, but they were all driven door to door by their parents. Second oddest thing was that less than a quarter of em shouted "trick or treat." It was most often some variant of "happy Halloween" or some such. Peak time was between 6:45 and 7:15...last group came around 7:30, and by 8 the streets were empty.

    Last year, it started around 5:15 and went through the 8:00 hour. 2017, we had literally nobody... I sat in the driveway for 3 hours and didn't see one person trick or treating. 16, we had 3 or 4 kids; same for 2015, 2014, and 2013.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    Do hope its better than Schindler’s List 2: Electric Boogaloo. That one had some real tonal problems.

    we have lived in the same house for 35 and a half years. We have NEVER had a trick or treater! at this point, if they start coming to the door now I could hand them a 5 dollar bill and still be money ahead, WAY ahead! I suppose, having a 1/4 mile driveway through a dark, thick, potentially haunted forest............................................ .............
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    We've lived in the same house for almost 20 years. Moved there childless and now have two boys in high school. Since we've been there, the neighborhood has turned over. I've gone from knowing pretty much every kid trick or treating at my front door to not knowing any of them. We had quite the gaggle last night. A big storm was on the way so they all showed up from 6:00-7:30. And as always, we bought too much candy.

    We normally have a couple dozen trick-or-treaters, but this year we've got construction taking place in front of the house. The sidewalks are cut out like moats, and barriers on the sides of the driveway entrances, forcing people into the street.

    Plus, it was extra-windy, so we only had about half the normal amount of visitors. We normally shut off the outside light around 10pm, but people were done well before then.

    I'm just glad people are still doing it, it's an awesome, fun tradition.

    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.
