    Default Fluff - What time do you turn off your porch light?

    What time are you all turning off your porch light tonight? Also, what time did you go out trick or treating? We went out around 5:30 and no one one out street had their light on yet. We went back out at 6 and it seemed most still had not turned their light on yet. Now after 7 there are many more lights on.

    We will be heading out after 6ish when it gets dark. I turn my light off when we run out of candy, or around 9ish.

    We turn off the lights by Robbie's bedtime so around 8 pm (yes, I am mean no staying up late) or if we run out of candy.

    Only had a few kids so far, it is 6pm but the kids we have had are very polite saying thank you and wishing me a happy halloween.

    My light is on now (5pm). I will leave it on all night. When I go to bed I will set a bowl of candy on the porch. It will still be there in the morning. If you build it, they will come, does not apply to my house on Halloween.

    Hardly anyone comes to our house. I actually still have the light on but don't expect anyone. (It's 8:41 pm here)

    I am thinking of turning the light off soon as it is almost 9. I let the girls answer the door some so I do not know how many people we got. I went through a large basket of candy with only a little left. I would guess somewhere between 50-100 kids. One house on our street goes all out on decorating with a full cemetery and tons of decorations plus we live in a busy neighbourhood so we always get several. Growing up we were lucky to get one or two kids but we lived in the country.

    We don't get trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. Too many apartments, not enough kids. We walked over a few blocks to another area that goes all out with decorating, they block off the streets (illegally, but no one complains, LOL!) and almost everyone gives out candy. And being S.F. the houses are packed in together so you can fill up your bucket in just a couple of blocks. We trick-or-treated up a business street to get there, and the businesses that were handing out candy all had orange skulls chalked on the sidewalk so it was easy to know where to go in. We left our house around 6pm just before sunset and we got up to where we were headed around 6:30 and it was already packed. We left around 7:45 and many of the houses had turned off their lights already, and Tiven got handfuls of candy at some of the last homes she visited, they were getting rid of their last bit.

    The girls came home with lots of candy! They filled their buckets and someone along the route gave them groceriy bags that were also full by the time they got here.

    As for me...8 hours after leaving my bowl of candy on the porch all night everything is still there. Not one person but they cand is nice and cold!

    We had our last trick-or-treaters at about 8ish I think. We don't get a lot at our house just because we're on a corner, but we went to some blocks nearby that were packed with kids and really amazing decorated houses. I turned out the light in the window at about 9 but we hadn't seen anyone for a while. We have a ridiculous amount of candy left, I'm going to have Dave bring it to his office. It needs to leave our house!

    There are no trick or treaters out by us. We go to DH's uncles house and there, you get so many trick or treaters that you turn off your lights when you run out of candy. Any stragglers arelikely to get none.

    He bought over 750 pieces of candy, and then his brother brought another couple of large bags....every child got one piece only. He had to call it a night at about 6:30 when he ran out.
