It's been a while since we've given out candy on Halloween for various reasons (traveling, parties at other people's houses, safety concerns about our sidewalk). But this year we're home, not going out, and the dangerous step has been fixed. So I decorated up the porch a few days ago, and we laid in a modest supply of candy. It seemed slow, but in the end we had about 100 trick or treaters. Only a few were teenagers, and all of them had at least made an effort to dress up, so I didn't begrudge them. Many of the adults had dressed up to accompany their kids, many of whom were still young enough to be entirely bemused by the whole ritual. It was delightful.

Most of them had driven into the neighborhood, but I don't mind that either. The first ones came about 5:20, and we turned lights out at 8:45. There were still kids on the nearby streets, but our neighbors had turned their lights out, so we weren't getting anymore visitors. That's okay, it gave us time to walk around and admire some displays before it was too late.
