I've been alarmed at how many weirdos there are out there asking me "what are you wearing?" over the phone. I tell you it's just not safe to trick or treat by phone.

We had a good number of spooks, witches and superheroes visiting last night (and some lame non-costume attempts). There weren't as many as other pre-pandemic numbers but that means more lollies left for us.

Now that I have a house, next year I'll need to get candy for Halloween. I should probably get some for the trick-or-treaters as well.

We are way too isolated down our street to get Trick or Treaters - also it is spring and the birds are singing and the flowers are flowering, so not really spooky vibes happening...


I live in a country where Halloween isn't a thing; October 31st is Reformation day and a national holiday.

Only happened one year that some kids came trick-or-treating.

This year I saw exactly zero trick-or-treaters, including the two weekends before Halloween. After the pandemic, the number went down significantly. The only Halloween I saw, was the merchandise sold at the place where I work.
