I had a grand total of 92 trick-or-treaters last night, as they all came from 5:30 PM, until 8 PM. Having only 8 or 9 pieces of candy left in the bowl, I turned out the lights.
50 of those trick-or-treaters came within a ten-minute span of time. We had one quite disturbing little boy who had a real machete. He was angry with his little sister, and slammed the machete into our yard about half up the blade. He tore it back out and screamed to the heavens, while she laughed at him. And then, he stalked over, put on a smile, and very politely requested candy.
I gave him the most (five pieces) of all. Costumes of note (well, the first 15 kids weren’t dressed up in anything but normal clothing.) include a boy that dressed as what looked like a giant blueberry. It was almost Willy Wonka style. He walked up and down the street, but never came by my house, so I couldn’t ask what he was.
1 little boy had been dressed as Trump Taco, minus the Trump mask. Sweet kid; terrible costume choice from his family. The more interesting thing that I spotted would be the two people dressed in T-Rex costumes. Fully done with long tail, teeny arms, tiny cut-out in the throat to see, large head with fangs, etc… Their parents carried the bag for candy, because they couldn’t.
There was one child I didn’t see at first, as he came after dark, and was dressed head to toe in black, and a black mask. When he touched a button, you could then see two glowing red eyes in the dark. So I saw that “floating” up the ramp. And either he came by again, or someone else had the same costume with another group, for I spotted two more glowing red eyes later.
