Too Much Confusion - Let's Keep Halloween Simple

by Mark Evans

I'm not one to stand on a soap box, but as a parent I think things are getting too complicated for Halloween and it's not good for our kids.

$150 costumes, parents driving their kids around to get candy - 4000 different types of candy. 

I harken back to the days of homemade Cowboys, Bums and Football Players as costumes.  It was only night I could burn a cork, rub it on my skin and get away with it!!!

Keep it simple, it'll be more fun and more memorable for your child if they build their costume themselves (with a little help, I'm sure)

Too many choices!!  Like all the different Tootsie Roll products.....this is insane!!!!
