Scary Teddy

This is Halloween?

OK, as far as I can tell after taking a quick look around the development, I'm the only house out of 35 that is giving out candy. Two other houses have a single Halloween decoration, and I've got pumpkin lights, ghost lights, skeleton lights, scary shadows in the windows, candles, a spider on the door and Bach organ cantatas playing out the window ("O Mensch, bewein' dein' Sünde gross" is playing at the moment). I've had about 10 or so groups of anywhere from 3 to 10 (all of which ooh'd and aah'd over the house), which is admittedly more than last year, but still - it's 9:00 and I haven't had anyone come in over an hour.
