For the love of Chocolate
There is nothing like a child dressing up in whatever costume they can round up and running through the streets asking strangers for candy. I am not much of a Halloween type person but I do love seeing the tiniest of the tiny all decked out and running from house to house, not sure exactly what they should be doing or saying but seeing their eyes light up when they see the miniature version of a full size candy bar heading straight for the pail, bucket, plastic pumpkin or whatever their mother shoved into their hand. I especially love it when they immediately start to unwrap said energy in a wrapper and start devouring it before they get off of the porch. All they know is they have control over this little tasty tidbit and if past experience teaches them anything it is to get at it before mom notices it and spirits it away. Ahh the joys of childhood. It truly is amazing that this tiny little bit of confection can ward off a temper tantrum as easily as it can bring one on. Oh the power of chocolate.
