Halloween is all about the candy right? Not in my house!
I found out yesterday that not too many people are familiar with the holiday tradition that my family does every Halloween. We call it Switch Witch, but I have heard it called The Candy Fairy and The Candy Witch as well. Every year, my kids and I'm sure yours too, get SO MUCH candy while Trick or Treating. Enough to stock pile for weeks if not months. And it's kinda my job to be healthy, so do you really think I would allow my kids to eat all of that? Ummm No.
My kids get to pick out some of their favorites and then the rest is saved for the Switch Witch. On Halloween night all of their candy is left out, in our house it's on our fireplace, and the Switch Witch comes and takes it and switches it with a toy. Pretty good trade right? It wasn't hard to convince my kids that this is a good deal. What do we do with the candy? We burn it of course. Haha jk. Well right now it is stuffed in freezer bags and put away. We will probably save it for next year to pass out to kids at our door. With all of the artificial crap in them they will probably be fine.
