Now that you've made it through Halloween, you can take a break. You don't have to worry about having a stash of candy to hand out to kids when they come by. You don't have to make sure that you and your kids' costumes are on-point. You can relax until next year. However, it's not too early to look back on what you learned last night, and starting getting a game plan together for next Halloween. These are some of the things you should consider:

  • Who gives out the best candy? This is a vital piece of info for anyone going trick-or-treating. Where can you get the good stuff? Chocolates, sweets, and all the sugary goodness. And, likewise, who gives out the not-so-good stuff. Like the doctor down the way that hands out "healthy" Halloween alternatives.
  • Who is nice to the trick-or-treaters? Most people that are handing out candy to the local kids are pretty nice to them when they ring the doorbell. True, but there are some that just feel obligated to hand out stuff because it's Halloween, all the while maintaining the "get off my yard" personality. Avoid these people.
  • Who puts up the best decorations? This one is usually tied to the first item on this list. If their Halloween decorations are really good - scary, cute, etc. - they tend to have better candy. This is a Mark's proven fact, by the way. Not really, but it makes sense to me.

There you have it. This is a good start for your research for Halloween 2019. What kinds of things did you learn from last night? Let us know in the comment section below.
