Candy Confession

October 30th, 2009 at 02:38 pm

I'm a planner. I plan ahead. Ocassionally, too far ahead. Two weeks ago I bought a large bag of candy for our trick or treaters. I told the family: have a couple pieces and save the rest.

A day later, my husband realizes he can't resist the candy, so buys another bag for us to eat. A big bag. Fine. I guess I could eat a few pieces of chocolate. Who am I to argue!

He mixes the new bag of candy with the first bag! What? Why do that? Here's the confession: over the course of a week we eat both bags of candy. Both bags. Large bags of chocolate candy. Now that can't be healthy. I'm sure that was nearly $20 worth of candy.

I bought another large bag on Sunday. Yes, I had a couple pieces again! But that bag is ready for the beggars tonight.

Yes. Tonight. October 30th. Our town among others in this state trick or treat the night before Halloween. Oh! And you have to tell a joke at the door.

Joke: What do witches put in their hair?
Scare spray!

Have a great Halloween! I hope I can stay out of my daughter's candy. Well wish me luck anyway.

    Hmm, interesting local tradition. That's a new one for me. I'm always up for funny Halloween jokes, so thank you for sharing!

    Sounds like you guys have a lot of fun traditions. That's one thing I miss about living outside the city! I think there are a couple kids that live in our buildings, but no one has ever brought them by to get candy. Trick-or-treating, and then when I was a teenager passing out candy to other trick-or-treaters, were some of the best parts of Halloween for me. The joke at the door and the "Boo"ing are news to me.

    Glad to know some suburbs and towns are still doing it. My parents used to get countless kids all night trick-or-treating and my dad would buy like 10 bags of candy. Now they say it's rare even to get a couple of kids.

    hahahahaha! We have had halloween candy experiences like that. I, too, like to buy the candy early (and I only buy what we'll eat later, so it's not the cheapest option). But I've learned I can't buy it too early. I think I got it last week. Some years we get more trick or treaters than others; we don't usually get too many though.

    Love the joke! Have fun tonight!

    Where I grew up in New Jersey, the night before Halloween was called Cabbage Night, and that was the night when all the local kids would do their mischief with eggs and toilet paper.

    Here in CT, the night before Halloween is pretty quiet, thank god.

    My house is very dark and scary on Halloween night. Nobody home but the chickens (oh wait, we don't have chickens, just a chicken shack for when BA decides to come visit his country pals.) Really our neighborhood on a regular night is pitch black unless some riotous spending neighbor leaves a random porch light on which is extremely rare. And our house with it's thick curtains generally always looks empty at night unless I leave the twinkle lights on in the sunroom by accident. We've never had a single tricker treater in the 10 years we've been here. And, that's okay by me.

    But back when we lived in town? We've had those Halloween chocolate candy mishaps ourselves.

    Were they those big bags you get at Costco?? DH opened ours up too, hopefully he has not eaten that much, I guess I should get it down and look!
