We had a ton of kids come by. My kids had so much fun passing out candy that they started giving their candy away when ours was gone.

We didn't get too many. We left the bowl in front of the door from like 6:00 to 7:15 while we were out with our daughter. There was still a good bit left when we got back and I would have been happy if some malcontents had taken the whole stash. I think the doorbell rang 3 or 4 times after that. As usual my wife bought too much candy and that in addition to the leftovers from our party on Saturday is looking to undo all my weight loss "gains" from the past few months.

I took the kids TOT'ing and Dh gave out the candy.

Based on the amnt of kids I saw and the candy we have left (we handed out 2 each), Im guessing atleast 50. We live in a subdivision of just over 100 homes, with only 1 entrance. I didnt see a lot of cars, it seemed that the majority of kids live in the neighborhood.

My kids got an insane amnt of candy and thats with me limiting them to 2 pieces when they could pick their own. It was a lot of fun! Definately the most kids Ive ever seen out TOT'ing.

Zero as well, we live in Hillsborough, and the "hot spot" seemed to be in Churton Grove, so we have all this left over candy for my co-workers!

Have leftover choc. bars, do what I do. Chop into bits, put into freezer bags and use to make ice cream throughout the year. Just made a batch of Reese's cup ice cream. Have separated and ready to chop Snickers, Twix, Kit-Kats and Butterfingers.....mmmmmm.......

My kids got so much last year, that I just used up the last of last years frozen bars a couple weeks ago!

We had so many cars trying to get into our neighborhood that it shut down Wake Forest HWY. There were kids everywhere. Way too many to count. I didn't stay home as this was the first year I could work around my schedule to walk with my daughter in her costume. We only did one block and her pumpkin was full already of the good candy so we headed home. (I mean really....How much candy does a 2 yr old need?)

I didn't give out candy this year because I walked around with my son, but I live in a development in Holly Springs and I've noticed a disturbing trend the last couple years, it seems there are a lot of teenagers who drive in from other areas, and walk around without even dressing up to get candy. What's up with that, can't they go to the store and buy it? We went down by the entrance to the development and could see several cars with $1,000 wheels parked there. Guess they can't afford food after spending so much on their wheels

We had a couple of teens come to the door, not in costume, bag in hand. It doesn't bother me at all to give them candy. I think, "Oh, you poor things! Your lives must be so pitiful if you're trick or treating. Here's a Snickers."
