HALLOWEEN IS JUST 34 DAYS AWAY!
When you go trick-or-treating, you should follow Halloween Ethics. In other words, be nice and get more candy. To help you out, here are some simple Halloween Hints & Ethics:
1. LIGHTS -- Look for houses with the lights ON. They are the ones that have the candy. People who like kids leave their lights on come Halloween. If the lights are out, usually the people in these houses did not buy any candy to give to kids. Leave them alone. Hurry and run by their houses, so they can't see how cute you are in your costumes. If you see them peaking out of the window, do not wave. You may moon them, but don't wave.
2. OLD PEOPLE -- If old people answer the door and say "WHAT?" You should shout "trick-or-treat" really loud. That way they will hear you and know you mean business. Then smile. You should smile a lot. You get more candy that way and it's nice to be nice to old people who have spent some of their fixed income buying candy for you.
3. YOUR COSTUME -- If people ask "What are you?" don't say "I'm a kid." They know that. They mean your costume and who you're dressed up to look like. If you don't have a costume, then tell them: "I'm pretending to be a kid."
4. THE CANDY SACK-- Make it big. Better yet take a pillowcase. It's bigger, and if it's wet outside, paper sacks can spill your candy. After you say "trick-or-treat," hold out your big candy sack and the people will either put some candy in the sack for you or let you choose your own candy out of a bowl. Some people will try to sneak healthy food into your sack, like an apple or soy bars. Tell them how you've been working all year eating healthy stuff in preparation for Halloween. Explain that you get one candy day out of 365 days a year and this is it. This is your candy day!
5. BE GRATEFUL -- Always smile and say "thank you" to the people who give you candy. If you don't, they'll remember next year and you won't get as much candy, even if you think you look different in a new costume. They know.
6. DADDY'S CANDY -- If your Daddy is walking with you while you trick-or-treat, you're gonna have to share. Daddies like candy. So, pick out the stuff you don't like and hand it to him.
7. MOMMY'S CANDY-- Mommies don't act the same as Daddies when it comes to candy. Mommies sneak in and steal your candy after you are in bed. Don't let her take your sack away. by telling you that you'll just get sick. She will offer to let you have a couple of pieces a day, so you won't get sick and your candy will last for a long time. It won't last that long if she's dipping into your sack too. Keep your own sack of candy and hide it someplace good. She'll look for it. She'll say she's just putting your clean underwear away in your drawer. But she's looking for candy.
8. MAKE-UP -- If you wanna wear make-up, just remember that goop is going to have to come off, probably before you go to bed. Your Mom won't want all that make-up to come off on your bed sheets.That usually means a lot of hard rubbing by your mom or dad -- or heaven forbid -- an older sibling. By the time they get the make-up off, your face is going to be red and burning hot and you'll be squealing and screaming. Rethink this.
9. TO BUNDLE OR FREEZE -- First off, Mommies and Daddies will tell you that you will catch a cold if you don't bundle up in several layers of clothing when it's cold outside. They are wrong. That's a myth and just not true. Should you need ammunition to show your parents, look here. Tell them that you will be eating candy and that will fire up your metabolism and keep you warm. You knowing the word "metabolism" will stun them long enough for you to run out the door.
10.THE SCARE FACTOR-- It's a good bet that someone is going to try and scare the bejeebers out of you when you go out trick-or-treating. Mommies and Daddies are good protection. If people see that you're with big parents they'll probably go and scare someone else. Just be sure to take a flashlight with you. If Dad says that he'll hold the flashlight, then you get your own. You need your own flashlight to see what's going bump in the night. May The Force be with you.
