Halloween without Sugar, without Weight Gain

Once again, I'm planning a Halloween without candy, temptation or weight gain. Instead of turning off the lights and ignoring the doorbell, I'll be giving the kids money. I'll put my spare change in a big bowl and throw a few coins into their bags. The kids love it and so do I.

My hairstylist has her own way of avoiding eating leftover candy: she buys the same candy she puts out for her clients, and puts leftovers in the dishes in her salon. She remarked today that if you give kids fruit, they'll probably throw it away. We saw this with changes in school lunches, and even if a kid does like fruit, it can be hard to eat if they wear braces.

Meantime, here are a few videos to get you in the mood for Halloween.

Above: "Gus Fring, Hiding in Plain Sight." Scenes from Breaking Bad. Warning: violent scenes.

Scenes from Death Note. Song: "This is Halloween" by Marilyn Manson.

The Orphanage trailer. Creepiest movie I've ever seen.

Halloween without sugar, the kids may be startled!

Like the sound of your idea though.

All the best Jan

I've given out money for two Halloweens, and the kids seem to love it.
