Teal Pumpkins

Now, sure, I used to scoff at those who would hand out tooth brushes instead of candy but well, I'm not a parent. And, truth be told, I do think that the amount of candy that some kids are now able to collect is...well, kinda frightening really!

I usually limit our offerings to "chocolate or chips." But the chips on offer here are a little odd tasting so I've substituted hard candies (Jolly Ranchers or Campino!) for chips. I haven't included any type of nut treats for a long time.

We don't have food allergies but I know lots of people who do. So I think I can get behind the Teal Pumpkin Project--which is basically about offering non-food items at your door on Halloween night.

And while I can't bring myself to actually put a teal pumpkin outside my place (teal...ugh, so NOT Halloween) I will have some hand made Halloween decorations or dollar store Halloween items on offer as an alternative.
