Last year we got only a handful.....huge disappointment. This year we got almost 50.....I didn't keep track but that's how many glow bracelets went out the door! So many cute costumes and I'll bet 1/3 were homemade! THAT is cool, too. Usually it's the plastic stuff from the store or just a commercial mask (I MUCH prefer makeup or domino type masks with more visibility!). We had little princesses followed by army men who were just ahead of a pack of Disney characters, etc. Not too many ghoulish types and more than a few babies being carried to trick or treat that didn't have the teeth for the candy! Guess mom and dad are kids at heart or have sweet teeth?????????

Loads of comments and thanks from parents for the bracelets. I think I'll do it again next year!

No power = No Trick-or-Treating = No Trick-or-Treaters. Town Fire Department may still hold their party this weekend, though.

What a great idea to give out glow bracelets!! I was driving through our little town and there were lots of kids out and I noticed quite a few had something glowing or reflecting on them, which is really smart because it's very hard to see them when you're driving, especially when it's dark and raining, which it was.

I feel bad for all the kids who couldn't go trick or treating this year.
