It's Over

 I took refuge on campus and thus avoided the ravenous hoards of tiny but insatiable mouths.

 Anyway, here is a wolfgirl cosplaying as a witch.

UPDATE: J. Greely discusses these matters rather more thoroughly here

1 I missed at least an hour's worth of kids because my normally reliable as the sun setting porch light light sensor switch didn't switch on. It was 7:00 and I was thinking"Where the hell are the kids?" then I discovered it.

2 My new apartment complex is gated, but in spite of that I didn't get a single trick-or-treater.  Disappointing.  (I used to live in places that had throngs of kids.)

3 Anyone want 50 pounds of candy? I got maybe a third the number of kids I had last year. Maybe their parents read the knot joke on my blog...

4 A friend of mine who runs a comics store (that is usually besieged by candy vacuums on Halloween) reported the same thing. 
My neighborhood (which is generally quite busy on All Hallow's Eve) was reportedly dead as well. 

3 data points are not a reliable survey of course, but I do wonder if the SJWs actually impacted the holiday this year?

It is time like Halloween that reminds me of Steve.  You could always count on him to post updates on the status of his candy bowl.

6 I was listening to a podcast recently where they got in to the waxing of Halloween and waning of Christmas in perceived cultural influence. As part of the discussion they got in to the changing ways in which Halloween is celebrated. They guessed greater adult participation and a shift to house parties and discrete events is supplanting youths wandering the streets. We also don't know our neighbors like we used to.

Our Halloween here has been a washout two years in a row, which can kill a kid's interest without active parental hype.
