1. Walk to and from work so you don’t feel guilty eating as much candy as you (I) inevitably will. (2 miles round trip.)
2. Know when the trick-or-treating starts. I was thinking dark (7:30ish) but since downtown trick-or-treating started at 5/5:30 people just went home and started trick or treating (6:30).
3. Buy your candy BEFORE the evening of Halloween. The main display at Checkers was empty besides M&Ms and some rope thing. Kisses and rolos were the only packaged candy left in the candy aisle. (It really didn’t matter since, ya know, we started too late and had 3 groups of kids/teens come).
Next year, our screened-in porch is going to be a haunted delight. I already have visions.
