Trick or Treating
For kids, the tradition of trick or treating is all about candy! It’s also a fun time to show off costumes and hang out with friends. But you don’t have to spend a fortune or buy mass amounts of candy. Halloween simply involves getting prepared with candy for trick-or-treaters and fun treats for your own kids, too!
