Today, many goblins and ghouls will wander the streets searching for tooth decay. Whether you think Halloween is a conspiracy invented by the candy companies or an excellent excuse to pretend to be Superman, you really only have one task as an adult: hand out candy.
Sure, your home might have spooky decor, haunted sounds, and great ambiance, but if it doesn’t have good candy…. you,ve ruined Halloween.
That’s a lot of pressure.
How do I know which candy is the best to handout? (As long as you avoid peanuts, you’ll be okay.)
Is it possible to give the wrong thing out? (Do dentists still give toothbrushes or teachers, rulers?)
Can I ever give too much candy? [Full disclosure: I give more to the ccostumes I like (doesn’t everyone?)].
If only I could pretend I wasn’t home. But, for that to be believable, I’d need to remove all the decorations and, honestly, I’m more likely to cover the skeletons in garland and leave them up through Christmas than take them down… ever.
