I say just turn off your lights and do not answer the door. Keep your opinions to yourself. Really, some people just have to make it all about them. Has to be an Obot.
For those that would like an alternative to candy without lecturing: Stickers. You can get them in bulk at party stores. Kids love them parents are ok with them and you don’t ruin the fun . Other options such as party favor sized Silly Putty also work well. I always have a non food option just in-case and kids often pick those over candy as Mom & Dad will not ration.
Shoot, I say the same darned thing. No lights on. Many churches offer carnivals, and some neighborhoods do the same thing. Halloween should be a fun and uneventful evening. I always looked forward to Halloween as a kid. It was a night time extension of having fun. I don’t get these nuts at all.
Is this for real? If she cares about the children’s health, she should just give out stickers or something. Otherwise, this letter basically says: “Sorry, forgot to buy candy, but hey, my printer still works!”
Unfortunately X, some adults just have to be butts to kids. Personally, I think this woman is the one that yells at kids for walking off the sidewalk. She needs a life so that she stops pretending to care about other people’s children.
