Another year with no Trick or Treaters. I think that my neighborhood must be one of the ones that is "bad" so no one comes by. The first year we lived here I bought a large bag of candy thinking that we would be out by the end of the night. Not a kid knocked on the door. The next year I bought a smaller bag with the same results. Not needing to have a bunch of candy sitting around we decided to not buy any this year.
This whole not having trick or treaters is quite disappointing to me. When I reached a certain age handing out candy became the biggest part of Halloween. I was too old to go out on my own so my joy came from seeing all the younger kids dressed up. I feel kind of cheated that no one is coming.
We did not take Evan out trick or treating this year, so I guess we were part of the problem. I just did not think he was really ready just yet. I tried really hard to teach him to say "trick or treat" even bribing him with chocolate chips. It was no good he was not going for it one bit. He would happily say any number of things but trick or treat was not one of them. Maybe next year!
