I don’t know which countries celebrate Halloween, so just in case, it’s a holiday celebrated here in the US on the 31st of October, where people dress up in costume. Children traditionally go door to door in the evening showing off costumes and collecting candy around the neighborhood.
I have decided handing out candy for Halloween is about on par with performing free glucose tests - hey kids, welcome to the land of diabetes, have a sample!
I do think the tradition of trick or treating is fun, but I’m going to treat them with something else. I found (Thank you, Robin), some ping pong eyeballs on Amazon that look cool for about $.50 each.
What else would make a good ‘treat’? Also, there are usually infants/toddlers being carried by parents, don’t want to leave them out but there’s the question of what is safe for a baby. Not all the gifts have to be baby safe, but some should be.
