Halloween when it starts getting dark. Isn't that the way it is everywhere?
Actually no. When we moved to a new town in NJ, we were really confused when we had trick-or-treaters knocking at our door two days before Halloween....turns out, in the town that we had moved to, they had Trick-or-Treating during the DAY before it got dark out, the Sunday before Halloween....really weird..... We had to rush out to the store and buy candy since we still hadn't, figuring we still had 2 days to get some. Kind of ruins the fun of it, though, especially during the day!!
At my apartment in North Raleigh last year, I got 1 trick-or-treater...ONE! I was totally bummed. I had bought loads of candy, and I had all these halloween decorations, but my apartment was kind of secluded, in the woods, but I figured that the complex kids would at least make their rounds. Hopefully I get more kids this year, especially since Halloween is on a weekend night!! =D
