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." I haven't included any type of nut treats for a long time...although I do have some this year. I also have lots of hard candies and toffees on offer because back here in Canada there are more options.

We don't have food allergies but I know lots of people who do. I can get behind the Teal Pumpkin Project--which is basically about offering non-food items at your door on Halloween night--but I can't bring myself to actually put a teal (ugh) pumpkin outside my place. I will, reluctantly, admit some people have made it look good.

And I will have some hand made Halloween decorations or dollar store Halloween items on offer as an alternative.
