Worst Year Yet! [Oct. 31st, 2009|11:22 pm]
Kelly J. Cooper

We only got eleven kids this Halloween. ELEVEN! Twelve if you count the mini-pin whose owner insisted it was a really small, well-costumed child.

And me with my giant spiderweb, giant spider, egg sac, TWO strings of orange lights, rotating color lightbulb in the porch light, big skull, little skull (with creepy rag dress), window decorations, home-made clip-on bat, home-made rat with rat-hole, tombstone, FOG MACHINE, and, last (but not least) home-made Halloween 2009 MUSIC MIX! With creepy sound effects between each Halloween-themed song!

PLUS, I was dressed as a pirate lass! (Though I called myself The Pirate Queen. Yarrr.)


Ya just can't please some people.

(Yes, I had candy too. Sheesh. Like that's even a question.)

Wow. I would have expected a banner year given how warm it was today, along with it being a Saturday. We joined friends up in Lowell, and I've never seen so many trick-or-treaters at once. There were *lines* of kids waiting to go up onto people's porches. Yikes!

I know! That's what I was expecting too!

My best year was 2 Halloweens ago when we got 25 or 26 kids. Last year was about 20, maybe a couple under.

We had very few as well

I think it's somewhat to do with our location, relative to the other houses that had more traffic. Also, we seemed to be the only ones on our little side street with the welcome mat out, so who knows.

But overall I saw fewer kids out this year than I'd expected given the warm weather and that it was a weekend night...

I just left the porch light off. No decorations, no candy. (My exciting Halloween? Laundry. Deeee-pressing.)

I'm not sure I got eleven on my best year. Mostly that's why I go elsewhere Halloween night. )-:

I think the Flu leveled our neighborhood, we didn't even get as many as we usually get and had Two Huge Costco sized bags of candy. Yeesh...

We had 2 trick-or-treaters, dressed as a 30-something librarian and her husband. And they left candy wrappers on the coffee table, those ingrates.

Seriously, though: nobody. How could anyone resist visiting Seagrave Rd on Halloween? How, I ask you? (Y)arrrrrrrgh.

My coworkers will surely yell at me tomorrow for the volume of candy I'll bring them.
