I've got decorations up, a big bowl of candy and the puppy dressed up as a cow. Where are my trick-or-treaters? Does no one go door-to-door in South Tampa?

A few years back we had over 20 at my place, if we have 2 this year it will double what we had last year. It is sad

It's a frustrating guessing game...some friends in Chicago gave out 12 bags of candy in the first hour and a half. They were panicking to get more before running out!

We had maybe a quarter of the kids we've had the last three years. And only about 1/3 the number of houses were lit up. Since I'm pretty confident my neighbors haven't joined some fringe group that believes Trick-or-Treating is the work of Satan, I don't know what the cause might be. Might be the economy; those who did give out candy mostly had the inexpensive stuff. Fewer Reese Cups, more generic lollipops.
My son likes the lollipops, but his dad's seriously bummed. <g>

I gave up after two years of nothing. The first few years I lived in my house I had dozens of trick or treaters. One year I know I had over a hundred kids. The last two years however had two kids showing up so this year I did nothing. And of course looking outside of my window I saw that trick or treaters were back so I will try again next year.
