You must understand that, since most witches are kind of scary, they can't go trick-or-treating like everyone else on All Hallow's Eve. But they definitely like candy as much as the next little goblin.
So each year, our daughter places some of her tick-or-treaing "loot" into a plastic cauldron on the windowsill, to share with the Halloween Witch. She even picks out some of the special candies that she knows will be enjoyed.
Of course, there is always MORE than enough candy to share, and the gifts left in return are FAR more fun than cavities or achy stomachs.
While we are all asleep, the witch visits to collect her sweets. She is always so grateful that she leaves special treats in return. When my daughter was younger, she left puzzles, dollhouse furniture, books or other surprises. We can't wait to see what she leaves this year.
So remember, if your little costumed sweethearts overfill their bags with candy...maybe they would consider sharing with the Halloween Witch. She's full of smile-inducing surprises!
