Last Night's Tally (No Tally) - 2021 Halloween Visitors
In what I know many of you will find to be a dissatisfactory notice, I'm disappointed to report that last night - Halloween 2021 - there was no visitor trick-or-treat tally that was conducted. This is (now) the second year in a row that I've failed to both conduct the tracking assessment as well as failed to post the results here on the blog. I'll take a COVID pass for 2020. But, this year? Just a product of the new neighborhood, going out with the kids to trick-or-treat and not being able to control the tracking.
Now...like a lot of you, we have video evidence that I could go through to try to recreate the visitor list and make a tally, but I don't have time for that this morning. Here's an example showing the Mandalorian and his buddy who plays for the Chicago Bears. (Note...I grabbed this screenshot without the kids faces showing on purpose...)
We have (now) had five Halloweens in Downers Grove - three with data and two without.2017: 77 total
2018: 24 total
2019: 52 total* (Disputed)
2020: No Data
2021: No Data
In 2017, we had 77 kids total. A low at the time.
In 2016, we had 302 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.
Downers Total: 52 + 24 + 77 =153
Downers Average: 153/3 = 51 (2 years of no data)
Elmhurst Average: 2298/8 = 287.25.
Total Trick-or-Treaters: 52 + 24 + 77 + 302 + 346 + 308 + 326 + 327 + 269 + 236 + 184 = 2451
Total Yearly Average: 2451/11 years = 222.8 (2 years of no data).
*2019's numbers are under dispute. Note: Some have been thrown out and the 'on sheet' total lowered to be closer to accurate.
