On Halloween night, most neighborhoods are flocked with herds of children waiting to add to their sugar stash.
Despite living in the heart of a school district, my house never sees many, if any trick-or-treaters. With that said, my parents and I still buy loads of candy, just in case. However, more often than not we end up eating most of the candy ourselves.
