Living in a village, I normally get between 250-300. Go through about 4 bags of candy. So needless to say I dont buy that great of candy.

Additional question: What do you do when you see kids who are between 17-19 trick or treating? I give them some of the worst candy I have like jolly ranchers or tootsie rolls.

Dont get any where I live Laughing


Used to get around 300 when I lived with my mom ... everyone stopped around 15 so getting 18 year olds was never a problem

When we moved, my parents kept a tally so they could know how much candy to buy next year. We had like 185. We typically get around 200.

Growing up we got about 4 -- my niece and and 3 neighbors who knew we didn't get anyone so they'd all get a ton of candy.

Now that I have my own place, we got maybe 30-50 last year or so. Very slow at first, so I started giving handfuls of candy to all kids, but then I had to be more conservative with it.

Didn't really have any 17+ year olds though, oldest we saw was probably 15 and just wearing their high school lacrosse uniform.

In my parents neighborhood, we only ever got about 30-40 kids. Some of which were parents driving their kids to our house from other neighborhoods since we were the family that always went all out in decorating our house. Parents and kids alike would always stop comment on how much they look forward to visiting our spooky garage each year.

At my house I just moved out of, 0. New house, probably the same as it's not a heavily populated kid area.

The last couple of years, zero. I won't be staying home this year, though, so I won't know.

It depends. The amount of kids is probably around 50 I guess. But I mostly hear the visits which is only 10-20. Sometimes almost none lol.

Not a fan of it. I dont like answering the door lol.

We use to get like 100 but last year we got 10. Laughing

My dad would have kids sing songs for candy and he makes my friend's little brother do pushups. Laughing
