I grew up in a neighborhood where my brother and I were (for the longest time) the only kids on the street. It was the kind of neighborhood where the houses have lots of space in between and the next kid lived quite a ways down the road.
On Halloween we were lucky if we even got one trick-or-treater. Trick-or-treating in our neighborhood consisted of me and my brother walking across the road to the house at the top of the hill, where Mr. Ryan would open a bag of candy corn and dump half the contents into my brother's bag and the other half into mine.
Now that I am grown, I have always looked forward to kids coming to my door on Halloween. But no matter where we have lived, we were lucky to get even one much less two trick-or-treaters at our door. That is until we bought our house last year. Last Halloween we had over 50 kids come to our door! I spent more on candy than I did my phone bill! I am excited to see how this year will be. Only a few more days until I find out!
