    It needs to be about 20% cooler.

Our church does a trunk or treat. I had honestly never heard of such a thing growing up, and all I can think now is how hilarious (and kind of twisted) it is that we teach our kids to never get in a car with a stranger for candy... but it's cool to go to a parking lot full of cars with strangers with candy. :blink: Kind of mixed messages, just sayin.

 

MY MIL does the Halloween candy thing here so we don't get to. Which kind of sucks for the kids because she bought plain M&M's this year. Ewwwww!

 

And a correction on your list there, Andes are fine. I've known this since between my diagnosis and going gluten free since it was the most important candy to check.

I used to get dressed up and meet the kids at the door. Now, I leave the lights off. Just too many kids, and FAR too many BIG kids - older teenagers. If a seventeen-year-old kid thinks he needs to go trick or treating, I think his parents should be notified. Yes, I am a Halloween scrooge.

 

But if I DID do Halloween, I think I'd give them...LIVER AND ONIONS! :o

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

You're hilarious! I used my kids when they were little as an excuse to dress up and take them out and steal about 75% of their candy. :ph34r: It wasn't just that I was young either, I'd do it still now if I had kids. They just don't need all that candy. I mean come on... how much candy does a 2 year old really need? My mom stole my candy until I got wise and started hiding it all in my bedroom.

 

My husband doesn't like Halloween, it's my favorite holiday. We compromise by not celebrating. In exchange, he doesn't play with fireworks on the 4th. What can I say, I like a man with 10 fingers.

LOL :lol:

 

We only get about 70 kids, so this year I'm giving out juice boxes and cans of cheap pop. The price is close to the same and I don't have to worry about kids with allergies. If I run out, we redistribute our boys' candy once they are home. My kids trade in most of their candy for a toy (this year is pokemon cards) which works out well since all my kids are gluten-free, and one is also dairy and nut free.
