Last night's Halloween turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. I went out and bought some apples and a few chocolate candy treats for the kiddies that I expected to come knocking at the door, and to my disappointment, only three children came to the door, and two of them were together. Definitely disappointing.
I suspect part of this stems from the fact that the immediate area that I live in (a condominium set of townhouses in a street of its own that curves around in a circle) has much fewer children than it used to a few years ago, as kids grow up and the Halloween activities of running outside and going door-to-door yelling, "Trick or treat!", and the like just fades away, unless replaced with new families with their children.
Somewhat sad by this, oddly enough.
