Thank you for articulating so nicely exactly how I feel about Halloween! I just put my young girls to bed after a wonderfully fun evening that started with a sandwich supper with 5 other families and a trip around the block with 13 other children ages 2-10. My girls loved running from door to door with the big kids, enjoyed the smiles of the treat givers and had another chance to practice saying thank you to the kind strangers who gave them a treat simply because friendliness abounds on October 31st.


It is possible to do it without the sugar overload as well. Due to severe diet restrictions, my children cannot eat any sugar at all. They don't mind - they give away their horde to the other children, making them quite popular, and each gets to choose a new book instead. They have all the fun of Halloween with none of the tummy aches and a new book to boot!
