My love of Halloween begins and ends with the candy. I have a mean sweet tooth and Halloween candy is just perfect packages of bite-sized sugar. Yes, I could go buy packs of candy, but then I wouldn’t get the variety that I got when I was a kid through trick or treating. And yes, I do blame trick or treating for this sweet tooth of mine.
I’ve heard that eating as much Halloween candy as I can might not be the healthiest idea. Supposedly. So this year, in the spirit of health, I’m going to try and shift my love of Halloween candy to a broader, more general love of Halloween with the game Halloween Pumpkin Juggling. There’s no getting around it— this is a fun, silly game. Pumpkins are falling from the trees and I’ve got to keep them up in the air. You compete for the highest score—in other words, he who juggles the best wins. No, pumpkins don’t live in trees. But that doesn’t stop me from juggling pumpkins instead of focusing on the finer points of a Mr. Goodbar vs. a plain old Hershey’s.
Download Halloween Pumpkin Juggling to get into the Halloween spirit. And if you’re still shopping for Halloween candy, remember lollipops and packets of carrots are not the reason for the holiday. Butterfingers are. You’re welcome.
