Trick-or-treating very light tonight

I'm not sure if it was just our subdivision or not, but trick-or-treating was very light this year, both in terms of the number of trick-or-treaters coming to the door, but also in terms of homes in the neighborhood giving out candy.

A little under the weather, I stayed home to hand out candy, shunning the top of the driveway handout. But compared to recent years, trick-or-treaters were few and far between.

My wife, who was walking the kids around the neighborhood, said there was also a noticeable lack of outside trick-or-treaters, those who are trucked in from out of the subdivision.

I wonder if this is what it was like for most neighborhoods this year. The bigger question might be why.
