Trick or Treat!

They also serve who hand out candy. I don't go to parties due to a costume adversion and fear of drunken revelers auto accidents. Someone has to hand out candies and admire the cute little children in their outfits!

In my neighborhood there are lots of adults who also beg for candy! Which I find strange, as I would buy candy if I wanted it, rather than beg from strangers, but maybe they just like the interaction?

What is your theory on their motivation?

Well, my theory is there are a lot of adults walking around, supposedly normal, who just haven't been diagnosed with the latest "whatchamacallit syndrome".

Perhaps that is why they need candy handouts. Their syndrome has not allowed them to grow up and buy their own candy.

Another perhaps is that it is the playful nature of the holiday with dressing up that allows adults to set aside normal societal manners.

Their spouses won't allow them to buy candy for themselves? So they have to get a stash at Halloween?

I say it is still strange and a little cheap!
