What Your Trick-or-Treaters Won't Tell You


340991_super_bubbleTrick-or-treating starts in a little more than 24 hours — are you ready?

Whether you’re a new parent trick-or-treating with your little monster for the first time ever, or you’ve got a veteran kid looking to improve their technique, Reader’s Digest has some tips in their 13 Things Your Trick-or-Treaters Won’t Tell You.

Here’s a taste:

  • Have a choice of containers to collect your candy in? Go for the pillowcase every time.
  • The longer you stay out on Halloween night the worse the candy gets. Plan to go early!
  • A well-decorated house means a Halloween-enthusiast lives inside. Chances are they spend extra money on their treats, too.
  • Stuck in a crowd at the door? Be patient, and you might be rewarded with an extra piece of candy.

And here’s the one I take issue with:  Dads stay out longer than moms. In our house, I’m usually the last one to agree it’s time to give up and go home.
