I was at work... and since I work at Kumon (like tutoring place), we of course got no kids who want to come as most of them just picked up their work/assignments then left. It was a great time to catch up on office duties and I kind of liked it lol.

At home, apparently we got *zero* kids... We did turn on the lights even though we were too lazy to put up decorations or anything lol. What to do with all the chocolate... >_>;

I stayed home and handed out candy this year (just getting over the flu, so I didn't feel like doing to much). We bought enough candy for about 100 kids, even though we only average about 60-70 each year. Unless there are some really late stragglers, it looks like we only had 9 kids show up this year, which is a pretty disappointing turnout. Oh well, more leftover candy for me.

Halloween just isn't a thing in New Zealand??????? There were some kids who turned up at our door, but we just gave them a few bits of candy from our tiny stash and sent them on their way. It's nowhere as big as it is in America, you Americans are crazy.

We had three kids come to our door - at the time we had no treats. We presumed nobody would come this year because we got no kids last year. We then got some chocolates, but no other kids came. YAY I GET ALL THE CHOCOLATE!!!1!11!! one!!!!!!11!

Halloween just isn't as big of a thing these days as it used to be. I remember back in the day, we would always have tons of people come knocking on our door and there would hardly be any candy left by the time I got home from trick or treating (which was usually around 11:30 at night) and tons of kids would be flocking the streets. These days, that's hardly the case. There's maybe one or two people walking down the street when I look out of the window and we haven't had anyone knock on our door (maybe it's because we moved?) in two years. Not a soul!!

Our neighborhood kinda sucked because there weren't any trick-or-treaters, so I took my sister, her friends and my cousins to the next town up north and that town was filled with kids trick or treating. Then we came home to find my parents and my aunts at home and played SSBB throughout the night. It was a pretty swell Halloween, I must say xD

Isn't New Jersey essentially like, destroyed right now? It's no wonder people aren't trick or treating. :P

I live in a gated community in some hills so we very rarely get trick or treaters. :/ We don't really bother buying candy anymore, haha.

Ours is postponed until Saturday... or Monday. I don't really know. The governor announced that it was postponed until Monday, but the mayor of our town and a few others announced it would be Saturday. It's really confusing and not what Halloween should be. But I was talking about recent years. It's just not what it used to be, and that's really depressing. :(

Yeah. :/ I can imagine there are a lot of things that are pretty out of the ordinary over there. I'm actually surprised you still have power at all, considering how many people in your state are without it.

I really like your governor except that he supports that nutjob Romney. >_>

Happy Halloween suckers!

But no, really, Happy Halloween.

Yes, I do realize this is probably already way too late for some people.

There was only one kid who knocked on my door. Spiderman. It was raining a lot so we let him take all the candy he wanted as thanks for braving the weather to protect us all from supervillains.

Well I watched Ju-On (yes the original) early this morning (1-2am) before going to bed and The Shining before that which ended after midnight. Earlier on Halloween I watched Child's Play 2.
I really wanted to The Nightmare Before Christmas but none of the movie channels were showing it.

Also saw the trail end of the 1999 remake of The Haunting. What I saw from it, was awful.

Went to a party for a little bit. Then my friends and I just watched movies for the rest of the night, eating store bought candy because we're too old to trick-or-treat. :P

Yesterday night, I watched an episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, of which the contestants' attempts at 'comedy' was probably more terrifying than any horror film in existence. Just dire!

And the wonderful thing with living in an apartment complex with an intercom and everything is no annoying children coming to my door! Not that I would have had anything to give them if they did show up...

My brothers and I went trick-or-treating. (And, no, I'm still young enough to trick or treat! ) We hit the mother lode! We found the Holy Snickers Grale! I personally went as a scientist. Or to be specific, an "epicfailiontoligist," or a specialist in epic failures.

it's true, isn't it? We live way out in the country so we typically average around 1 kid per year (record is 3), but this year we got nobody at all.
I suppose today's kids prefer staying up all night playing cursing at each other while playing the most violent video games GameStop will sell them. :/

Halloween isn't popular in my neighborhood. We got the occasional trick-or-treat children knocking on our door, but we weren't really prepared for that so we disappointed a lot of kids by not offering them candy. I went to my friend's house and we watched Sinister.

I have yet to sleep properly after that.
