But that's what your not understanding it's not the sense of free candy, honestly personally, I don't know about dirrtydozen22, but I don't even really care for candy in general, it's just the spirit in it. Kinda like Christmas isn't all about the presents it's about the spirit. Stop focusing on free candy and notice how happy it makes all ages to enjoy the spirit in their own way, so what if they are with younger people, they have a youthful sense of joy. Kids have more fun with the little things than adults, so an adult doesn't lose that, whats wrong with that. Why is it that if you don't go Trick-Or-Treating, you have to go to a party? and I think that we all have our reasons for thinking the way we do, but read all the posts, and start trying to see other peoples point of view. So she wants to go trick-or-treating what is the honest harm in that?
I remember being six years old and Trick-Or-Treating with my best friend, the neighbor kids, and that one adult who got stuck watching us, and there was kids EVERYWHERE. Groups of 10 kids or more always ahead of you. I went Trick-Or-Treating last year and I saw literally no more than 100 kids in 3 hours in 2 different cities. Now a days kids don't celebrate Halloween as much, so you bought a big 1000 piece bag of candy and give out 3 or 4 to each kid... 100 kids... 300-400 pieces of candy... 600-700 pieces left.... now you have all that candy, no one needs all that candy, why not give it to some holiday spirited people, you are one step away from diabetes and if you already have it give more candy away, and you didn't waste your money because you gave it away in the fashion you planned.
