Here’s some Halloween advice from the neighbourhood witch

I ask that people who will not be home to turn off lights or place a sign out saying “no candy.”

Halloween is, once more, spookily upon us.

I love this fun tradition and look forward to it all year. This year I have noticed a lot of kids saying they do not celebrate Halloween because of religion or ethnicity, and their family will be giving no candy out but will be trick-or-treating.

This places a huge burden on those of us who wish to celebrate Halloween.

Where I live I can expect 100 kids while only two to three families are actually going to give out candy.

If you are allowing your child to trick-or-treat, then maybe buy some candy and give it to a neighbor who is giving out candy.

I also ask that people who will not be home to turn off lights or place a sign out saying “no candy.”

So many little tykes going to lit-up door after door and no one is home.

While I am at it, how about a trick-or-treat time frame, say 5-9 p.m., starting with little kids? I get kids knocking at 3 p.m. and then again at 11 p.m.

Okay, I sound like a witch, and ha ha, that is my costume this year.

Happy trick-or-treating everyone. Stay safe and have fun.
