2011 NYC Halloween Parade

“What’s happened to Halloween? The celebration of all things sugary has turned sour: dentists are colluding to pay kids for their candy. GreatSchools, an education website, has gone so far as to proclaim trick-or-treating booty an “unmitigated disaster for parents trying to protect their children from OD’ing” on sugar, and offers parents tricks for handling the “upcoming tsunami of sucrose.”

In online forums, moms trade tips for keeping sweets away from kids without their cluing in. One mom says she partners with neighbors to supply trick-or-treaters with only pre-approved (read: yucky) treats. Other parents are more openly Scroogey: one mom torments her kids by forcing them to hand out the candy they collected earlier in the evening to trick-or-treaters who show up later on their doorstep. Yet another mother invokes the “Great Pumpkin,” who swoops down tooth-fairy-style, removing Milk Duds and leaving toys and books in their stead.

I’m unclear what’s so great about this. My kids, at least, have no shortage of toys or books; they do have a dearth of candy, though, which is precisely why Halloween is so great. It’s specifically because we don’t let them gorge on Twix bars the rest of the year that their spooky stash is so special.” [TIME]
