So 28 people came by trick or treating last night, and we gave them 2 candies each. So 28 x 2...carry the 1...56 candies. The equivalent of 1 bag of nerds and 1/2 bag of milk duds. I guess the 2 unopened bags of nerds, the bag of milky ways bars, and the other 1/2 of the milk duds are for us. Not to mention what we ate from the candy bowl, wondering if people were coming around. We had so few people coming early on that i thought to keep count so we know for next year. Maybe b/c it was on Sunday and kids had school the next day? i don't know. All i know is i had waaay too much candy myself. Did you guys have a big turnout?
Have you heard of trunk or treating? Apparently some local school and churches did this, where you gather in a parking lot and have your trunks full of candy, instead of going door to door. I'm sorry, but that does not fly with me. Part of the fun of going to neighborhoods is to see the houses aglow with orange lights, to see the carved pumpkins lining the stairs. Ringing the doorbell. Actually saying trick or treat. Not peering into the dark, cavernous trunks of strangers because it's too difficult to walk up the pathway to someone's house. But that's just me. And i'm just sayin'.
