First of all they arrive in a motorized division...

There's not that many families with small kids on this street anymore, and I live at the end of a cul-de-sac down a VERY steep hill, so we don't get many kids wandering down here from other parts of the neighborhood. Last year I had only a half-dozen or so little beggars show up at the door. But tonight, there's been nearly two dozen. I was pretty sure there wasn't a baby boom on the street, but I finally found the source of all the extra kids: parents have been driving their kids down here so they can hit more houses than if they were on foot.

Personally, I think that's kinda dishonest. If the kids want more candy, they should have to work for it.
