When celebrating Five Days of Halloween, one cannot forget the candy.
I know that some people are opting to hand out healthy snacks nowadays, but The Husband and I are Halloween purists and go straight for the candy. Not only do we go for the sweets, but we buy enough candy to feed an army of trick-or-treaters:
Each Halloween season when we prepare to make our purchases, we have visions of costumed children coming to our door in droves. The reality? We’re lucky if we see 30 kids. That doesn’t curb our enthusiasm though because the best part about being an adult on Halloween is that you can eat as much candy as you want AND if you’re smart, you’ve bought all of your favorite kinds! Sure, half the fun of trick-or-treating is digging through your spoils at the end of the evening, but it’s kind of nice having your favorite candy in advance. And no one can tell you when you can or can’t eat it…. Come to think of it, I might have a little candy right now, it’s the responsible thing to do.
