Trick or Treat!

Halloween was such a blast!  I just love this whole time of year, gearing up for all of the holidays.  We all met up at a friends house and went trick or treating as a group.  What a wonderful night.  When it got dark, we all headed out around the neighbourhood knocking on any door with the front lights on.  I would say about 65% of the neighbourhood had their lights on.  We were out for about a hour and a half before heading back to gather our things to walk back home.  Of course, we trick or treated all the way home, as is the rule.  When we got home, the kids emptied their goodie bags onto the bed to check their haul.  They had tons!  I have to tell you though, I did not recognize a single candy.  Not one.  Europe has it’s own deal when it comes to candy.  They don’t have Hershey’s and the like.  You want m&m’s?  You’re not getting them.  You want a snickers?  Good luck with that.  And besides the differences in candy brands, when it comes to Halloween, they don’t do chocolate.  Nope.  Everything in the girls bags was candy candy.  Gummies and sugar coated lips, gumdrops and little bags of what looked like skittles but weren’t.  There were no “fun sized” butterfingers or kit kats, no reeses cups or milk duds.  Nope.  Nary a one.

It turned out to be a good thing though, because we eat as organic and clean as we can but on Halloween, I always let them go at it.  Well, they had several treats but didn’t like most of them.  They weren’t bothered by it either which was great.  When you’re a kid, Halloween is all about the costume and getting to walk in the street at night!
