What you never went to family parties...they are the best. Parents have a great time and kids do too.

Hi dspguy! I ran out of candy & had to turn out my lights earlier than expected. I had been buying different kinds of candy bars over a 2 week period before Halloween every time I went into WalMart or Walgreens. I met the kids up the "heck of a hill" driveway I have so the little ones wouldn't get pushed by the older ones. I had some taller than I am & looked older than 16...I guess they like candy also, but they were NOT dressed at all!! I asked them who were they dressed up to be (sarcastically speaking!) & they replied, ME! Originality, huh? I don't think anyone else had their "costume!"

It varies a lot from neighborhood to neighborhood in South Carolina. I was out of town on Hallowe'en this year, but I had over 50 kids (and a couple of adults, lol) in my neighborhood in Columbia last year. A friend of mine had over 200 kids stop by this year. It all depends on the locale.

We were on a house hunting trip in Summerville during Halloween, and we went back to one of the neighborhoods where we were considering buying (Legend Oaks). We went to one street in particular (Carriage Ride Lane) and the people were VERY friendly, houses were decorated, and most people were sitting outside on their porches or in the driveways waiting for the kids. It looked like most people knew each other, without a lot of "drop off" kids from outside the neighborhood. My almost 3 year old got enough candy that she had to hand her bag over to me to carry for her! (Yum! More for me and her dad!)

Default Summerville Halloween

I live in Myers Mill. This year we had a hay ride to take our cul-de-sac kids around the neighborhood, and finished up with a backyard fire at the neighbors. People were everywhere during trick-or-treat time! It was the best Halloween I can remember. It was our first Halloween here, and it was everything you would look for: family, friends, costumes, decorations, and a couple of kids with tummy aches...

A few of my neighbors told me they were going dark because that's the new thing at their church(all different ones) to avoid Halloween. They had a bonfire/pot luck at their church instead.
