They really curtaled it in my town this year. ToT was on Sunday, but it was only 3 hours. 3:00 to 6:00, and that was very strictly enforced. I even heard the police announcing on their car's P.A. system' "Trick or Treat is Over. Return to your home, or you will be cited." I thought that was really, REALLYH (pardon my french) $hitty of them. I'm sorry to use profanity, but there's no other word for it. I only got about 30 ToTers this year, and I have two bags of Kit Kats, two bags of Nestle's Crunch, and one bag of Snickers left over.
On the bright side, I did screen a lot of horror flicks that I haven't seen in a while, which included the Dan Curtis produtions of "Dracula" and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyl & Mr. Hyde." The ToTers who did show up really love my pumpkin and my flying bat. I also carved, over the entire month of October, 8 jack o'lanterns, and three of them are still with me, and I will be lighting them tonight, as I celebrate Halloween until November 3rd. Todayis All Saints Day, and tomorrow is All Souls Day. My last two days for the Spooky decorations before I take them down and start doing my Christmas cleaning.
I still had fun, but I would have loved to see more ToTers. Last year I had to have over 100. We also usualy get 4 or 5 hours. This year they only gave us three. I was sure that some of the other communities who had ToT early would have come here to To T on th real day, but I gurss the cops put the 'kabash' on that, too.
Oh well, time to start dreaming ofr next year.
ONLY 365 DAYS TO HALLOWEEN 2011!!
