Trick or Treat! Who came to your door?

Chilipepper Chilipepper
I've had an interesting array of trick-or-treaters this evening ...

Teenagers wearing Santa hats and telling me they were his elves and collecting candy for stockings.

One Harry Potter fangirl who was squeeing that I named my dog Voldemort. (I was telling him to get back inside and said his name ... the girl wanted to take him then and there.)

Two 40-something ladies dressed up in elaborate fairy costumes. No apologizing, just having a great time. They were the only ones to mention their recognition of my door sign: "Bell out of order please knock". In fact, they were singing 'Ding Dong the Witch is Dead' when I opened the door.

One five-year-old who wanted to steal my steampunk goggles.

A dad who started talking to me about Salem because I was wearing my Salem witch t-shirt. His kids were trying to pull him over to the next house.

One cat that tried to sneak into the house while I was handing out candy. I may end up adopting it if it hangs around that close again. (My ex-husband got the cat in the divorce.)

(Did I ever mention I like my weird neighborhood?)

So, any interesting people come to your door tonight?

More trick-or-treaters than we've seen in the past 5 years! I think for one it was because Halloween fell on a Sunday night, and most people were home from work.

This devil girl and cat girl came to the door and I had to let them in...they claimed to be my kids but I wasn't sure.....

Batman had a great time though he looked incredibly puzzled that we would knock on the door but not go inside for a visit. He demanded his phat lewts when we got home and after a few pieces became NapMan. All in all not a bad night.

Well, we ended up being out with the kids for the entire trick or treating time, so we didn't see any visitors, but we left a big bowl of candy for them. I'm sure the first kid probably took all of it, but I can hope that maybe a few kids got some!

I live on a very dark, dead end street and we usually only get the kids who live across the street, but this year we did not get anyone.

No one came to house. My house is somewhat hidden and people do not know it even exists.

I feel more and more odd that our Trick or Treat night was Thursday. Stupid Ohio.

Our apartments have a system where you can hang a sign on your door to let kids know your handing out candy. We got candy but never got our sign, so no one stopped by. More for me!

I did see some baby-whores hanging around the plaza yesterday, middle school age girls in really slutty costumes. I don't know if it's because I grew up up north that that didn't happen(it was normally really cold at this time) or if we just had more sense back then.

Oh and I saw the cutest little boy dressed as dino yesterday too, he rawred at me when I walked past.

No one. Thank goodness for living in the boonies. I didn't go trick or treating. I think my costume might have been a bit inappropriate.

We didn't do trick or treating this year. It seems like a common occurrence in my neighborhood. Less and less people are doing it.

Chilipepper, interesting experiences!

We didn't get any trick-or-treaters while I was here, we were out for much of the early part of the night shopping for supplies for a late party!

One of the things I like about our neighborhood is that it has few kids. I know that sounds awful, but living in an apartment complex with a lot of them in the past, it's quite a relief for me. And this way, we can eat all the candy! But I'm trying to watch my figure.

I live in a four-plex (I don't know if that's a real word but it's what we call it here) and no one hands out candy so we just don't turn the porch light on. We did get one group of kids still show up and knock (well, bang) on the door - I had some candy and if they'd seemed nice about it I would've gladly opened the door but they just started pounding on the door screaming to give them candy so I ignored them.

We had out first trick-or-treater at 1:30pm! Geeez, Halloween on a weekend being taken too far, huh?

Our street was blocked off for a block party. Lots of kids all afternoon. A few adults and some of the kids did the Thriller dance in the middle of the street. People seemed to love that.

We had a bunch of kids in the afternoon, while my kids were still playing, getting made up and dressed. Some were not dressed up at all, some had store-bought costumes, and a few were truly creative. There was one very rude teenage kid that interrupted me taking photos of my kids and their friends on our front steps to say to me "Come on, where's my candy? Gimme some candy" - and he wasn't being playful. So, neither was my reply.

We walked sooooo much last night, trick-or-treating all over West Philly. My daughter was a Vampire Hunter, and we had a great time making her weapons belt of wooden stakes, garlic sash, and crucifix. My son was a "post-apocalyptic feral bloodsucker" (his words), and was made up to look like a creepy zombie vampire, replete with fangs and lots of fake blood all over his tattered clothes. They had friends come along with us - a zombie doctor and Alice from Alice in wonderland.

We saw SO many great costumes - a homemade robot costume, a gorgeous geisha, a slinky Cleopatra, adorable little creatures, a scary Venom, a few Grim reapers, many many fairies, lots of princesses, a few really spectacular vampires, a gaggle of pirates, an antique doll, a beautiful gypsy, ladybugs and bees, and a tiny little Minnie Mouse. There were so many kids - it was great! It was also VERY chilly in Philadelphia last night.

All in all, it was a full day

Cute. You have to let them in, Airen, even when they leave voluntarily.

One of mine, when she was two, started walking into people's houses, and didn't want to leave, until she understood "More houses, more candy!"

We had ONE set of trick or treaters. A little two year old Spider Man (with muscles in his costume) and his older sis, a princess. That was it.

My Man was sad, because there were no kids to scare. He had become "NapMan" himself, as well, when our one group of little trick or treaters came to the door; so he missed the only kids we had.
