Home Spun comic strip #411
My children usually go trick-or-treating with homeschooling friends in a different neighborhood. After spending about an hour or so going door to door, they head back to their friends' house where everyone goes through their candy haul. A lot of trading goes on at this time. After a while, everyone throws their unwanted candy into a bowl. Our friends take this unclaimed candy with them to their classes in the city until it's all gone.
A lot of times, Halloween candy becomes building material for gingerbread houses. I usually toss out the remains at Easter time. I figure by then, they had it long enough to eat it if they wanted it.
I really don't remember Halloween candy lasting longer than a day when I was a kid...
I will be taking a comic strip break next week to prepare my quarterly reports. Happy Halloween everyone!
