Happy All Hallows Eve, my darlings! I don’t know about you, but I always think it’s a bit anticlimactic when Halloween falls during the work week. Strike that – as a child I found this downright tragic. Sure there was the glory of parading through school hallways in the costumes my crafty mom had spent months sewing, but homework and early bedtimes meant there were only a few hours to run through neighborhoods with young zombie princesses and sit around swapping malt balls for Butterfingers with friends. Out of consideration for the limited time kids are going to have to trade sweets with one another tonight, I’ve filled my candy bowl with my personal favorites from childhood (Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Twix Bars), but I’m beginning to realize this will be a very dangerous proposition in the event that I get only a few trick-or-treaters. Ah well, here’s to hoping lots of little zombie princesses, witches, and bunnies knock on my door. What have you stocked your candy bowl with for this evening? What were your favorite candies as a child? Do you still love them or is your sweet tooth different now? Leave a comment.
