Halloween 2014

I enjoy Halloween and seeing all the trick or treaters come to the house in their costumes. Being a geek, I also like to track the numbers, as it helps me plan candy purchases in the future.

I’m tracking our treaters in real time. You can see the metrics on the graph below. I define “hoodlums” as kids who don’t dress up and are just out for the candy. I give them candy, viewing it mostly as a bribe, so they don’t egg my house ┬álater.
