    0.

    It's been imported by the retail industry to bolster their pre-Xmas sales. You only see it on certain TV channels, but not really in real life.

    ..make that 7.

    So far, no yobs. The local authority have actually passed a small bi law this year that prohibets shop keepers from selling eggs or flour to kids.:D

    Not a one-this is our first year in this apartment complex (12 apartments per building), and I guess kids don't even bother because of the secured entrance. That's okay by me; I've been eating all the candy anyway.
     
  7. me and my friend had eggs thrown at us(2 cars...the car came around our way twice) about 8-14 eggs thrown...missed us,all 8-14 times:)

    really sad...

    Some of my friends wanted to go trick-or-treating tonight. I went along with them and slept in the back of the truck. I think they each got about five peaces of candy for about fourty-five minutes of walking. We then went home and ate all the candy that was already there.

    I had 1 kid come to my house the entire night. (well, i was out..doing,.,..stuff, but my mom was home) and she said he was about 4 years.. and no parents were in sight. Weird.
     
  12. None. But not that I was there to witness it, I was too busy at a No Use For A Name/Bigwig show. It was amazing, and then I drank beer.

    I actually didn't eat any candy this halloween.

    but I did dress up this year...as a robot, first I've dressed up in 2 years.

    we are the only people in this building, so we didn't get any trick or treaters, and if we did we weren't here. :p
