Okay I want us all to GO Green for Halloween - not White - as in toilet paper!!! So, don't give the kids something silly instead of candy.

I know, I know, we might not think kids need any more sweets than they already get in their soda and treats but if you hand out something less than flavorful - the kids will never forget and you just might end up getting papered - and I don't mean in a nice way.

You might end up picking toilet paper out of little cracks and crevices for months to come and it won't be off your body. You might find tiny bits and pieces thrown up into your trees and up over your house. Kids love to heave those rolls, like little footballs and watch them lob their way into unimaginable locations.

So, remember, we can all encourage going green for Halloween - just remember kids still expect to find a treat in their bag when they leave your doorstep. If they take a quick peek, and don't find something delicious, you just might end up getting tricked - in a very bad way.

Maybe you don't remember this little ditty from back in the day - but I do:

Trick or treat,
Smell my feet
Give me something good to eat
'cuz if you don't
I don't care
I'll pull down your underwear!

So, have a green Halloween - just make sure it isn't white.

Kids in your hood must use pretty high end TP;) Ours is totally dissolved within a month because it's single ply (hahaha).
Amen to good candy--and no stupid trinket toys!

I've heard about people giving used books instead of candy. I wonder if that would be considered a "bad" treat? Depends on the child receiving it, I guess.

My kids love to sing that!
And yes, we are giving candy!
When I was about 13, my sister's friend stopped by and asked if I had any extra tp since they were going tping. So I gave her some. And she tped our house with it!!!!
