Let me set the record straight. Our children choose not to participate.
We have provided them with information about the practices and history and they have made this choice themselves. Yes, the information we provided is biased, very biased. You are welcome to review it and leave a comment here with your thoughts. I will only delete comments if they are derogatory or crude. So if you can comment as a respectful & polite adult, I'd be happy to review your reasoning with our family.
If you are part of our community and truly concerned about our children missing out on candy corn, homemade caramel apples, or popcorn balls, I would be happy to have them dress up (they may already be, we dress up regularly) and come for a visit on any other day of the year to receive your delightful treats. Just a note, some of the family is allergic to corn (chocolate is a great substitute, hershey candy bars & kisses don't have corn).
