Trick or Treat – An Exchange Program

We had to leave for a while this evening and were expecting a small number of kids coming around for their ritual sugar. We left the lights on and left a bowl of candy on the porch. When we returned home we found a few things left in the bowl…

… but they weren’t what we’d had there originally. Apparently someone decided to do some sort of candy exchange involving our bowl, so instead of leftovers of what we purchased, we now have several new types of sweets.

The whole thing seems odd to me. Why would someone leave candy for us? I guess maybe someone wanted to stock up on ours rather than keep what they had… anyone else had this happen to them?

    I typically let my kids ‘trade back’ into our candy basket at home at the end of the night (after the ritual candy inspection).

    I then pull out what I want for myself that night, and package the rest up to take into work the next day.
