    We had a pretty low turnout this year for Halloween, normally we get between 80 and 100 kids, this year maybe 40. We've had kids showing up in great numbers even in a light snow, this year 65 degrees and a bad turnout... what gives..?

    Halloween is sucking more each year in this country ... can't say anything about the other countries so only addressing the US ;) People didn't start donning costumes until night time here, half the concerts got canceled (the one we were suppose to go to got canceled because they couldn't get their Visas, fucking feds) ... and this has been an over all bad week anyway ... got into an argument with my building door-man to top off the evening ... bah! Still my favorite holiday, but next year I am going to a party instead.

    According to some on here it's because of:

    A) The Swine Flu

    B) Satan/The Pope/Fred Phelps

    C) The people in Washington DC

    D) The Washington Redskins

    E) The social/economic factors involving the selling of candy and how that will effect our economy

    F) They don't let grown ups trick or treat

    G) The rain/snow/cold/heat

    H) Gen Con Fans

    I) The World Series

    J) Kids just don't like begging for candy from strangers anymore.

    Halloween has changed allot, why when I was a kid.. moons ago.. it was dedicated to the kids. We made our own costumes, just about every porch light was lit and in 2 hours you could collect a shopping bag full of candy.

    Now, most porch lights are out, you buy the costumes and you walk your butt off with your kids for 1/4 grocery bag full. economy...?

    We have a restricted building, most of the downtown buildings are getting like that, which sucks so I can't throw my own party ... otherwise I would. The whole week went downhill, went to the hospital with extreme pain ... had to sit there for hours before any tests were done (there was a lot going on so not their fault for that) ... only the tests didn't show anything (I hat CT scans ... I really do) .... that's how it all started.
