Did everybody enjoy Halloween this year?

For those of you who stayed home, how many trick or treaters did you get, and how much candy did you give away?

1 Mad Mom October 31, 2012 at 8:58 PM

I’m just about to shut down. We only had 14, but we don’t really get very many. ๐Ÿ™
The kids that visited us were so cute!
Have a good night Mayor and Claycord

2 CLAYCORD.com October 31, 2012 at 8:59 PM

I agree, there were a lot of cute costumes this year. You have a good night too, Mad Mom! ๐Ÿ™‚

Mayor

We only got 4 kids this year and we were handing out full size bags of peanut M&Ms. We normally don’t get many kids due to private road, no street lights (but light posts controlled from inside our houses), houses spread far apart, so we buy candy that we will eat. Looks like we have 44 bags left ๐Ÿ™‚

4 Highway Star October 31, 2012 at 9:05 PM

Six… no sidewalks in this 50s-era subdivision makes it iffy. The rain didn’t help either.

Too bad for the no-shows. This year I thought I’d step up and hand out 1 lb. milk chocolate Hershey and Krackle bars.

5 Highway Star October 31, 2012 at 9:06 PM

I just thought of something… if this were Antioch, we’d be waiting for Tricks or Tweakers!!

Hahahahahaha.

6 Bb October 31, 2012 at 9:07 PM

We only had 30-40 kids. Years passed we had 100+ kids

7 Dorothy October 31, 2012 at 9:13 PM

About 50 or 60. I don’t give candy but had treats that they liked and I let them chose their own out of the bunch. It started to rain about 8 PM.

I do think there were more costumes this year. Not so many masks only and only one in no costume, just regular clothes (said he disguised as a teenager).

8 Killjoy October 31, 2012 at 9:14 PM

We only had about 20 kids by 8pm. In years past, we had about 50 by that time.
After 8 we only had another 5 to 8 kids. My wife was giving out the candy by the handful to get rid of it.
It’s a good thing we only bought one bag this year.
We shut it down at 9.

9 Anonymee October 31, 2012 at 9:15 PM

I made little goodie bags again this year but I only handed out about 1/5 of them (last year they were nearly all gone). I’ll hand some of them out at work tomorrow to coworkers with little kids and maybe I’ll bring the rest of them to the Monument Crisis Center or somewhere like that.

10 mom October 31, 2012 at 9:18 PM

we only had 9 kids (3 different groups). there are 2 houses for sale in our neighborhood…i’m hoping people with KIDS move in!!! we need kids for my kids to play with ๐Ÿ™‚

11 PH Fan October 31, 2012 at 9:19 PM

Seemed slower this year…didn’t even go through one Costco bag…unusual for us….

12 sugar high October 31, 2012 at 9:19 PM

We always have a lot of kids in our neighborhood (Bishop Estates) but this year I decided to keep track each time the doorbell rang, I tallied my sheet by the door. Grand total tonight 102. I’m on a court inside the “loop” and I know the outside streets had much more. We have a great neighborhood for kids. It was a beautiful night for trick or treaters, until the rain started about 8:30. By then, we just get the teenagers anyway, who are too old to be begging for candy. It was a good time to blow out the luminary bags and shut the porch light off!

13 Feckin Irish Mouse October 31, 2012 at 9:21 PM

an all time low of 33…………………….Normally get around 75. Oh well left over candy can go to work…………………..

14 Happy One October 31, 2012 at 9:26 PM

We had about 115, more or less. Some years we get over 150. I think it was a slow night because it was mid-week. Also the threat of rain scared out a few.

15 NRA #1 fan and member October 31, 2012 at 9:26 PM

I had about 300 kids come over and spent roughly $200 on candy from Costco. And you bet, I was carry 2 concealed weapons while passing out candy.

16 iscoffy October 31, 2012 at 9:27 PM

Got maybe 30. It’s my first Halloween in this house so I’m not sure if that is standard. I went through maybe a bag and a half of candy but I was giving out healthy handfuls.

It was nice that most were small kids in pretty cute costumes. Maybe the cutest were a little ladybug, Buzz Lightyear, and Jack Sparrow.

17 Left Over Candy October 31, 2012 at 9:28 PM

Answered the door 12 times, with a total of 29 kids. Better than last year, but far, far below what things used to be.
Ok, it’s Wed., and it started to rain just as the Trick or Treat began to wind down.

Now, I have to eat all this left over candy!

18 momo October 31, 2012 at 9:30 PM

We never get a lot of kids. Live on Denkinger, not a very kid friendly street. But this year only ONE child. The cutest little girl. About three years old. As she was walking back to her mother she said ” I can’t believe I’m getting soooo much candy!” Adorable

19 anonmtz October 31, 2012 at 9:31 PM

We had about 16 total…..four different sets of four very young ones in cute costumes early….then four more 14+/- dressed as teen agers with attitude.

We had a good evening all in all.

On to November and the winter hols……..

20 poppypants October 31, 2012 at 9:37 PM

I didnt get any
They all got away

21 KAD October 31, 2012 at 9:38 PM

I did not count this year. Too much work. In prior years, we had around 120. There were very few older ones and more younger ones this year which was great. They were all very polite. I was going to the door almost non-stop from 5:30 to 8:40. Part of the time I just stayed at the front door since I was tired of getting up and down.

22 Brother C October 31, 2012 at 9:38 PM

Too much candy, not so many children, turned off the lights turned on Boris Karloff.

23 Lois October 31, 2012 at 9:38 PM

Lost count! But it was done by 8. I heard that the Blue Star moms take extra candy to send to troops! I think I will go get some more because my kids and their friends emptied our bowl!

24 Sugar Fix October 31, 2012 at 9:47 PM

Had about 3 or 4 groups Gregory Lane area in P-Hill.. not too many . Me? I ate about 3 lbs. of candy. ๐Ÿ™‚

25 BL October 31, 2012 at 9:50 PM

90-100

26 J October 31, 2012 at 9:51 PM

We only had one group of kids… they stole from us.

27 Scoob October 31, 2012 at 9:51 PM

Had one kid – a five year old. Gave out one KitKat.

28 Walnut Creek Resident October 31, 2012 at 9:52 PM

Zero. I live in an area where I think all kids go to the malls for treats
My neighbor left her treats outside and I was the only trick or treater!!
She has Reeses Peanut Butter and chocolate treats. My absolute fav.
I had about 5 of them. Ha Ha.. She said I could eat them all, but I just could not be that piggy!!! I miss the kids. WE used to have pillow cases full of treats when I was a kid. WE also got into mischief. I am glad the kiddies are not as bad as we were. WE would have a blast. So much fun.

29 ChampagneKitty October 31, 2012 at 9:56 PM

None. I stopped giving out candy last year. I live in a 30 unit apartment complex and there are not very many trick-or-treaters that come through. I would end up with most of the candy, which I would then eat. Which is not good because I am a diabetic. It is better for me not to have it in the house. So I just kept all the lights off except a lamp in the bedroom and stayed in there.

30 Repeterman October 31, 2012 at 9:56 PM

We had about 200 in N. Concord. We get a lot each year due to my Halloween display.

31 Me October 31, 2012 at 10:01 PM

Started slow, didn’t have as many kids as normal but still went thru 5 large bags of candy!

Just curious, do people really count the number of kids?!

Happy Halloween!

32 Shannon October 31, 2012 at 10:03 PM

None…….Where are they?????

33 KING OF CANDY October 31, 2012 at 10:03 PM

I’m in Martinez (Vine Hill) had a new record of 107 kids and gave out 12 gallons of candy, 30 full size candy bars, 9 jumbo size Hershey bars, 36 bags of Famous Amos cookies and 13 3-day suckers!!

34 Good heart October 31, 2012 at 10:04 PM

We had 111 in spring wood. Was probably the most polite group this year all saying thanks, some more than once! Maybe there is hope that we will have some more grateful kids and not rude and spoiled rotten ones!

35 Irene October 31, 2012 at 10:05 PM

We had a lot of kids. Guessing over 250, because we went through two small bags of candy and two large bags with 165 and 230 candies. I lost track of how many kids after awhile. We started out giving two pieces, but soon realized that we would run out, so began giving one piece. All the kids were well behaved. Most said “trick or treat” and “thank you”.

36 Elwood October 31, 2012 at 10:07 PM

45

Lots!

37 mamatosix85 October 31, 2012 at 10:11 PM

We had around 150 and we live in Heather Acres. It was awesome and there were so many adorable costumes. I love the community feeling of Halloween.

38 Annalisa October 31, 2012 at 10:17 PM

One Bag and 17 kids.

39 mad mom October 31, 2012 at 10:18 PM

That’s so true! We bad the most polite kids this year. Makes me hopeful for the future.

40 Turtle Creek Mom October 31, 2012 at 10:18 PM

We had about 100. Seemed like less than last year, but last year I was preoccupied with a ball game on tv;).

Also, there are way too many “older” kids trick or treating this year. I don’t think they’d appreciate my sticker/toy/chocolate goodie bag as much;)

41 Concord Mike October 31, 2012 at 10:23 PM

We had 87 here in Turtle Creek. A little better than last year. Lots of little kids with their parents in tow. All very polite. Seems like more of the parents are in costume this year. Very cool.

42 Sunfish October 31, 2012 at 10:24 PM

We only had a couple of kids-but they did get handfuls of candy.

43 Ancient Mariner October 31, 2012 at 10:28 PM

About 30, near DVC.
Nice people – a lot of cute kids. The best one was about 10 and was dressed as an In-n-Out burger! He was round!
I always make them say the magic words – no candy without “Trick or Treat”.
Remember, folks, it’s a question. They’re asking you for protection candy. If you don’t give them a treat, they have the right to play a trick, usually involving TP or eggs.

44 Anna, The Lemon Lady October 31, 2012 at 10:52 PM

I wonder what the children thought when they went home with a bag full of lemons?
We passed out lemons! ๐Ÿ™‚

BTW – Mr. Mayor…did you receive my email the other day?
Hoping for more fruit to feed the local children at the food pantries. Thanks.

45 Halloween Lover October 31, 2012 at 10:54 PM

@ Repeterman — would love to come by and see your display. If you keep up during the weekend, please give general directions.

On Thornwood, we had about 50 kids. Much less this year than previous (150-200). Didn’t do our usual Halloween yard display, which probably added to the low count. It also brought out a lot of little ones (usually scared to come up the driveway). Very cute. Very polite! Lots of candy left — typical buy at Safeway is $55-$60 dollars worth of candy and giving out 3 pieces per TOT. One year had to steal my son’s TOT candy to give out to those ringing our bell! haha.

46 CW October 31, 2012 at 10:56 PM

I saw about 5 or 6 other groups in our neighborhood when I took my kids around. Our neighbors seemed eager to load my kids up on candy so I got the sense that it was a fairly slow night. The bowl I left out was only about 1/3 gone. OTOH, when we went to the Downtown PH Trick-or-Treat earlier in the day that seemed way more busy than previous years. Most of the stores ran out of candy by 4:30 while last year many of them were still passing out candy towards the end.

47 Dee October 31, 2012 at 11:12 PM

We had 51 kids this year . We live in the State streets. Most came in groups with parents. Stopped coming around 9:00.

48 still anon October 31, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Well, started out slow. 6 kids in 3 groups.So because I had a family emergency causing a very stressful week I decided to put all the candy outside with a friendly note to take 2-3 pieces of candy and make sure to leave the rest for your neighborhood friends! UMMMMM one hour later the 300 pieces of candy were gone. Imagine that. My dog was in the house and only reacted five times in that 1 1\2 hour! What a bunch of scum bags! Someone got a pillow sackful of candy. I hope you get a painful cavity!

49 Babs October 31, 2012 at 11:25 PM

I didn’t get any, but I was in my room with lights off, granddaughters go with parents to other Grandma’s house in Poet’s Corner. They decorate the house with lights and flying ghosts and witches and a full size coffin. Mrs. GoGo came in third at work for her carved pumpkin!!!!!

50 Sunfish October 31, 2012 at 11:56 PM

I love my kids in my area. Normal kids, a little rowdy–but considerate and polite, well to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

51 Tod Gomes November 1, 2012 at 12:08 AM

4 in P Hill. About the same as years past, not sure why.

52 Radar November 1, 2012 at 12:21 AM

I had none.

53 Sunfish November 1, 2012 at 12:44 AM

@Highway Star
It is too bad for the no shows-1lb bars?–that would have been way too much for us. Must have been expensive as s@#t.

54 Disgusted... November 1, 2012 at 1:24 AM

I’d say around 50. I hand out little goodie bags and had forty filled up this year. Went through those and then opened up my spare bag of candy and had at least ten more kids. What was different this year is that I opened the door less times, but there were mobs of kids each time. They also came in waves. Drips first, then at 7 and 8, I had lots of action for about 10 minutes a pop. They were especially sweet this year and I do get a kick out of them. I left at 8:45 to go to the Cursi House of Screams on Lewis. I never went before and used to live in that neighborhood, so it was fun. They really put a lot into it. My friend screamed her head off and I laughed the whole time pulling her around.

55 NOT disgusted November 1, 2012 at 1:26 AM

Oops..that ‘name’ was left up from a former entry about politics! Call me ‘Delighted’ this time!

56 Steve November 1, 2012 at 2:24 AM

I live in a very busy area in Martinez, but only got 3 groups! Maybe 12 kids total! Guess the rain kept everyone home… My folks in Lafayette said they got ZERO at their house! Weird!

57 lexicon November 1, 2012 at 6:00 AM

I took my kid and a friend out T&T in another neighborhood; mine is too sketchy. First time out for my kids; usually our church has a Fall Festival, but not this year. Not too many other kids out. A lot of the homes had older folks, I guess due to age and cost of the neighborhood. One home gave out king size 3 Musketeers, rest are fun-size choc bars. They had a lot of run, and it did not rain on us, as we finished by 7:50.

58 Lt November 1, 2012 at 6:18 AM

12…what a disappointment.

59 AJ Buttacavoli November 1, 2012 at 6:50 AM

Not a one!

60 Parsnip November 1, 2012 at 7:02 AM

@ #15

Uh-huh… And you probably dyed what hair you have red, and wore a James Holmes mask. People like you with obsessions that you even bring up regarding Halloween are what screws up community security.

In response to the question — except for some teens, zip. There are too many 365-day-freaks like #15 behind closed doors. The little ones go to safe trick or treating places.

61 BlueJay November 1, 2012 at 7:04 AM

Not a single one, thank goodness. In my younger days I enjoyed Halloween but now that I am an old fart I enjoy the peace and quiet.

62 Cruella November 1, 2012 at 7:16 AM

I had about 30 kids total. Lots of little kids (CUTE) and a few teenagers. They were all very polite. Was also giving out handfuls, but soon ran out of candy – then it was chewy peanut granola bars from the pantry.

63 Winn November 1, 2012 at 7:40 AM

I had 25-30 kids, I went through a huge bowl of candy. Shut down around 8:15. All three of my dogs wore there costumes, the kids love it.

64 Lise November 1, 2012 at 7:45 AM

There were not as many as last year, sadly. Still, I agree that there were more actual costumes this year. Faves were Batman, Gumby, Pikachu, and a toddler pirate. I don’t actually mind the teenagers myself. The young people we have in our area are very nice and polite, and their costumes were pretty amazing this year. One group even sang a song for their candy. ๐Ÿ™‚

65 Lori November 1, 2012 at 7:49 AM

Usually get quite a few, this year only had about 10 little kids ๐Ÿ™ Love seeing them they are so cute and so excited!!! By 8:00 the big kids started ringing the bell, it was ok for a while, most were not in costume but were polite. When the groups of teens started getting larger I shut it down since I live alone. By the time you are in high school I think it is time to stop trick or treating.

66 Wheredtheygo? November 1, 2012 at 8:00 AM

None. Haven’t for a few years now. Didn’t hear any kids or see any either.

67 Back in Wisconsin....... November 1, 2012 at 8:01 AM

Trick or Treat took place on the Sunday afternoon before Halloween. It seemed a lot easier and safer for everyone.

68 WC44 November 1, 2012 at 8:04 AM

Around 200 but would love to see more.

69 Tech925 November 1, 2012 at 8:10 AM

I wasn’t home this year but I left a bowl of candy out and they have the nerve to steal my bowl. kids these days are so ungrateful.

70 DoReMi November 1, 2012 at 8:11 AM

I had one group of 4. I’m glad I told them to take as much as they want. I thought they were especially sweet this year too. The husband saw alot of kids with parents roaming the streets but I guess our section was too far off the beaten track. Oh well. It was fun anyway.

71 Vote Libertarian November 1, 2012 at 8:14 AM

Had about 40-50 – most came in groups of 3-12. very polite, good costumes. finished at 8:30 – Keller Ridge in Clayton

72 Howard K Mullins III November 1, 2012 at 8:14 AM

A little lower than last year. I am guessing near 100. Had a little candy remaining, usually run out.

Great kid costumes, great kids, wonderful parents always telling the kids to say thank you. A delightful evening.

Not near as many older kids, they usually arrive later, rain probably kept them away.

An enjoyable night, usually is. Certainly worth the efforts.

73 Bryan November 1, 2012 at 8:18 AM

Id say we had well over a thousand. One thing Britney Hills is good for is Halloween. We love it.

74 Kristi November 1, 2012 at 8:38 AM

Any left over candy? Drop it off anytime today or tomorrow in the Ayers Elementary school office!

Halloween Candy Buy Back

Ayers 5th grades are collecting your extra, unwanted, unopened Halloween candy.

Thursday and Friday, Nov. 1st and 2nd in front of school office, before and after school

Bradburn Dentistry will donate $2.00 for every pound of candy to help the 5th graders raise money for Science Camp.

The candy will then be donated to Blue Star Moms and sent in care packages to our overseas military troops.

75 Witch Hagatha November 1, 2012 at 8:52 AM

I only had two. I usually have 3 or 4 but I’m on a diet.

76 Sunfish November 1, 2012 at 8:53 AM

None–guess I will donate the candy to the school–if my son doesn’t eat it first.

77 Mother Hubbard November 1, 2012 at 8:57 AM

We had 21 trick or treaters last night. All of them displayed good manners. We usually have about 60 to 80, and so I have tons of candy left!

78 Claycordian November 1, 2012 at 9:14 AM

We had just over 80 in Springwood. Very polite – almost all with parents.

79 Bishop Estates November 1, 2012 at 9:19 AM

Not many at all…..

80 DD November 1, 2012 at 9:30 AM

Live in the North Bay and had about 10.

When I was growing up in Concord this kinda cranky old lady on our street would give out Vick’s menthol cough drops (she didn’t get much repeat trade.)

I had a friend who was a dentist and he and his Wife always gave out Ju-Ju Bees with his business card attached to it.

81 Joey November 1, 2012 at 9:38 AM

I am 9, I passed out about 20 pieces of candy before I went trick or treating myself. I got lots of candy and one lady gave me a lemon.

82 Horse'n Around November 1, 2012 at 9:39 AM

We went out with our kids and there was some woman yelling at everyone to be sure and vote. So we told her Happy Halloween and all she could say was, vote, it’s your God given right! My kids thought she was crazy. Sorry but leave the political crap for another night.

83 Wisecracker November 1, 2012 at 9:41 AM

About 50 this year.
It did start out slower as others pointed out, but each time I opened the door there were about six or seven smiling faces! Great costumes and each one left with a handfull of candy and they all said thank you!

84 Know it all November 1, 2012 at 9:44 AM

I live in North Concord and I only got 1!

85 DoReMi November 1, 2012 at 9:54 AM

lol Horse’n Around. You have to admit she WAS scarey. I put on some choral music, laughing to myself that the thought of church might frighten some. After 15 minutes or so of that I loaded the Thunder and Lightening CD.

86 Seal November 1, 2012 at 10:13 AM

There were not that many kids-just a few. I welcomed them with open arms because I had so much candy. Still have a lot of candy left.

87 Seal November 1, 2012 at 10:14 AM

It is really all about the kids. ๐Ÿ™‚

88 Kirkwood November 1, 2012 at 10:25 AM

Almost no kids on the street last night, I was the only house in the court with lights and decorations. Got one family group of about a dozen plus two middle school boys. That was it.

Last year there were many family groups of about a dozen, plus one group of 14. I think some were from outside the neighborhood.

I’m going to be eating Snickers through next summer.

89 The Professor November 1, 2012 at 10:29 AM

I didn’t count, but last night was nuts. I’m guessing that we had close to 1000 people come down our street (including parents). One neighbor is Mr. Halloween and he always has a cotton candy machine and popcorn machine. He had the usual crowd. We had a neighbor’s halloween party with music blasting out of his garage. Next to that guy was a neighbor with a DJ set up (lights, big speakers, good music). It was practically a rave on his driveway. I’ll bet 50 kids were dancing at once on his driveway. Lot’s of people and a great time.

90 LE November 1, 2012 at 10:31 AM

I bought 2 large bags from Costco because we live in a nice neighborhood and we had l80 kids. It started at 5:30 and ended at 9 p.m.

91 Anon November 1, 2012 at 10:44 AM

About 15 or so in Carriage Square, very cute and well mannered. Now as for the OGMS students that come bye without costumes after-school well that is another story…

92 Save America November 1, 2012 at 10:57 AM

We had lots of kids. They were so cute and very well mannered. I passed out 10 bags of candy and I had also given out Halloween pencils and Halloween straws. The kids loved them ๐Ÿ™‚ SWEET ๐Ÿ™‚ Parents were dressed also and they watched there kids from the street. Kudo’s to Great Parents ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

93 jtkatec November 1, 2012 at 12:02 PM

I got around 15 in N. Concord. I was begging adults as they walked by in the afternoon to send their kids.

I give out full size candy bars and boxes of Junior Mints, Mike & Ike, etc.

Repeterman (30) must have a heck of a house, is it over by Crescent? Brian (92), are you cooking those steaks too, next year?

94 what happened to thank you?? November 1, 2012 at 12:09 PM

had about 15-20 small groups and about 5 thank you’s!!!
my parents NEVER let me leave the doorstep without saying thank you!!

95 Pegasus November 1, 2012 at 12:35 PM

Ate the first two and left their costumes out front. No more interruptions after that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

96 Sad to see November 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

I was disappointed in Dana Hills last night. Hardly anyone had their lights on. Had to walk past 3 or 4 houses for every house that was passing out candy. The only good thing was that my kiddies got tired of walking and wanted to go home. It actually wasn’t very much fun.

97 Sunfish November 1, 2012 at 1:09 PM

It is refreshing to hear about the well-mannered kids in Claycord. The couple of kids that I had were very well mannered–even though they were teens.

There are so many kids these that will yell, scream and have tantrums, even in public just because they cannot get what they want. We have to be thankful for our kids–because I am sure they will not grow up to be loathing, self-serving adults who will not contribute in a meaningful way to society.

98 Grewah November 1, 2012 at 2:46 PM

I am in the group getting no little goblins. I could hear some a block or so away where there was a big Halloween yard display but not came knocking on my door.

99 DoReMi November 1, 2012 at 3:41 PM

I was also wondering where BrianG was. He may be a neighbor. Next year we should set out the barbcues and dance around a fire. Maybe that would get their attention.

100 PB November 1, 2012 at 4:05 PM

The last 3 years only 2 or 3 have shown up. So we gave up, even with the front yard all decorated. Now to to Trunk or Treat at the church parking lot. 1000 kids! What a blast. 2nd year in a row, looking forward to next year all ready! Nice to see families in matching outfits!

101 Trevor Quinn November 1, 2012 at 4:07 PM

72 kids came to my door, 12 bags of candy given out, and I live in the Canterbury District

102 LorieStories November 1, 2012 at 4:13 PM

I went out with my daughter and son who is a very tall 5’10 twleve year old. He dressed up as the Geico Gecko. But he got a lot of rude comments from people saying “Aren’t you a little old?” I love it when the teenagers come around. The extra special costumes or polite kids get new Barbies, Zhu Zhu Pets or other trinkets. The ones who don’t dress in costume get a can of Tuna.

we usually get about 200 but this year we are puting in a new drivewy and replaceing the messed up sidewalk. So we had everything blocked off it was to dangerous to walk on..I missed seeing all the cute kids I allways give out the regular size bag of m&m or kit kats. I get them at cost co. It’s not that much more expensive and you can keep track of canyy if you have enough or not. M7M has 48 to a box.. It’s still a fun nighi

I live in the state streets and we had 33 kids. It gets less and less every year. My mom lives in Pleasant Hill and in 1967 she had 400 kids this year a little over 100.

@SadtoSee- Our section of Dana Hills was hopping. I lost count but easily 100+ kids. It was a little slower than last year, though. They were all well dressed and very polite, much more so than I have seen in the past. The parents were engaged and coaching good manners-haven’t seen that in a while either!
