Halloween 2022 has wrapped up and gone just as fast as it arrived.

It felt just like yesterday that Summer was shining down on the SouthCoast and before we knew it, kids are dressing up in their favorite costumes and getting ready to hit the town. The only thing on their mind is how much candy they'll collect in one trip.

You see, back when I was a kid, pillowcases were ideal for trick or treating as they allowed for plenty of ample space to fill to the brim. However, the one thing I noticed missing tonight was just that- a pillowcase full of candy with a pale full at best.

Over the past 4-5 years, I've gone trick-or-treating with my God kids. They're old enough now to walk on their own and knock on doors, but I still like to keep a close eye on them and stay by their side. Before we left, the household was full of energy and excitement, as the kids were suited up and ready to take on the neighborhood.

Little did we all realize that a majority of the houses weren't participating this year.

The neighbors kept their front lights off and even the ones who weren't home failed to leave a bowl of candy out for the kids. No judging here, but, sadly, there were more houses not participating in passing out candy this year than those that were. Could the spirit of Halloween be fading away?

The weight and size of my God kid's candy bags beg to agree, but again, it's just my opinion. Our experience could very well differ from the next town over. I'm just spewing the facts.
