How Many Trick-or-Treaters Did You Get at Your Door?

Did the rain keep them away or where there just as many as ever?

A theory going into Halloween: The door-to-door tradition of trick-or-treating is fading away because of concerns about pedestrian safety, nutrition, child obesity and the general spookiness of knocking on a stranger's door at night.

Totally wrong? Patch reader Catt Sundell said she had 85 kids at her house. Christopher Cooke said he ran out of candy twice and Heidi Brosas said her house didn't get too many.

"I had lots of left over candy! halloween is just not how it used to be!" Brosas wrote on Suisun City Patch's Facebook Page.

Also: If you would like to get Halloween candy out of your house, consider dropping it off at your local dentists' office if there is some sort of exchange going on.

Depends on where you live and the weather permitting, most costumed kids get hurt running in the middle of the street and not looking for any cars. The growing problem is more and more overaged trick or treaters such as the teenagers who seem to be looking for trouble if they crash a Halloween party for underaged kids ONLY, and it has been known to happen.

Had about 20 actual kids 3 adults not in costume, too. In this area I figure its best to give it to them and say goodnight. Not worth it to get jumped over a cpl pieces of candy! I just don't understand why they don't save themselves a couple of hours and go to the store to buy the 75 percent of bags the next day!

I took my 8 year old son trick- or- treating and we ran into lots of other kids and parents in our neighborhood. My son had a great time and the other kids seemed to be having fun too. Back at our house, we had a decent number of kids and had only a few pieces of candy left. The change I noticed from previous years was that there were quite a few homes that were dark or had signs posted saying " no candy." On a positive note, there were some really creative houses where the residents really knocked themselves out decorating and some really creative Jack-o- Lanterns. Overall, very fun Halloween in our part of Suisun!
