Costume Count 2018

I think most of you know the drill by now. If you're new (how is anyone new at this point?), here's a brief explanation.

When you get trick or treaters on Halloween, write down the costumes they're wearing and the number of kids. Send me the information, and tell me where the data was collected.

Costume count Grand Rapids, Michigan
3 zombies
2 Batman
7 Pirates
4 Wonder Woman

That's it.

If you want to add a third column for additional information (like funny notes about the individual kids, etc.), please do so, but try to put the count in one column and the costume in another column. If you can submit that in Excel, or some kind of spreadsheet, I can compile it very quickly.

We normally have a total of 800-1000 trick or treaters recorded in total, and it's fun to see how costumes trend over time. It's also fun to see how many different places report (Paul from Scotland, for example).

I'll compile the results and put the locations on a map.
