Last Night's Tally - 77 on Halloween 2017


What a difference!  Last year, we had 302 kids/others come to our door.  Last night?  77.  And that's not even super accurate as Eloise and friends did the bulk of the counting/handing out candy.  Oh...and we put out a bowl and went trick-or-treating with our kids for a while, too.  So, the numbers can't be verified by Price Waterhouse Coopers this year, unfortunately.

We're in a different neighborhood with different size lots and setbacks.  We walked a few blocks over and the place was hopping with kids and felt a lot like Elmhurst did the past few years.

So, here's the breakdown:

2017:  77 kids.
2016: 302 kids/total.
In 2015, we had 346 total.
In 2014, we had 308 total.
In 2013, we had 326 total.
In 2012, we had 327 total.
In 2011, we had 269 total.
In 2010, we had 236 total.
In 2009, we had 184 total.

Lowest candy year on record.  Good thing the savages in our house and neighborhood destroyed the candy bowl in our front hall during our little Halloween night party.  Or else I'd be having to hoss down four dozen mini Twix bars.  Not that I'm NOT going to do that anyway.  But...I'd *have* to.
