Yeah, quite out here, too. When I was a kid, kids were everywhere, many houses had lights on, and we'd go to 10:00 at night.
Those were the good old days. I trick or treated from the mid 70's to early 80's and every year was filled with kids until late into the night. Ever since the candy scare of the early 80's Halloween has never been the same. Its a shame. It was one of the funnest nights of the year for me as a kid. I absolutely loved it. Still love Halloween but just in a different way now.

I just got my last treater at 8:35.(Last year I got my last one at 8:51)
The first one came around 5:22. The busiest was around 6:30 to 7:45. I gave away 9 bags of funsize candy, 2 assorted, 1 charms suckers and 1 box of fun dips. So I gave about what I did last year. Maybe a little less but I attribute that to the cooler weather. I bought extra because I thought people would take advantage of the extra hour tonight and its a Saturday. Oh well more for me.
