DailyDirt: Nothing To Fear, Maybe

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The urban legend about poisoned candy on Halloween has pushed parents away from handing out home-made treats -- even though the realistic odds of finding dangerous treats is vanishingly small. Still, there are some crazy people out there, so maybe it's better safe than sorry. Just know that getting hit by a car while crossing the street is a far more frequent occurrence on Halloween.... If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    I usually give out full-sized Nestle Crunch bars because it's what the kids seem to prefer. A couple years back, I bought a variety pack and let the kids choose and they all picked the Nestle Crunch bars first.

    I like Halloween. For the past couple years, I've been rigging a dummy on my front porch so that I can raise the right arm when the kids come in. It's provoked a few yelps and even one scream.
