In an hour or so, it will be time to start opening the door to all the little neighborhood ghosts and goblins. This is our first halloween in the new neighborhood and I have no foggy idea what to expect. I went to Wal-Mart and bought at least a dumptruck full of candy. I have no idea how many kids live in the neighborhood, but I certainly don't want to have to run out and get some more candy at 7:30p.
There's a report out this week that says the average American family spends $14.41 on Halloween candy.
Can that even be right? Even if you were to buy total crap-o-la candy (like those peanut butter "drops" in black & orange wrappers) and even if you bought it all on sale (like the after-Halloween sale and then let it just sit for a year), I'm hard pressed to come out spending less than $30. This year blew that way out of the water. So if I'm on the high side, how much are you spending for candy?
Let's hope that we have some trick-or-treaters this year. Otherwise, I'm going to end up in diabetic shock!! I love you, mini-Snickers!
