I always give out candy to the trick or treaters on Halloween, but growing up, our aunts made us candy bags that had small toys too. It’s nice to give out something other than candy.
If you’d rather take your kids trick or treating for something other than sweets, head to your local comic book shop. The Saturday before Halloween (October 25) is Halloween ComicFest. Your local shop will be giving away a free Halloween ComicFest comic. No purchase necessary.
