The Candy Grab
How much candy do you give each little princess and Spiderman who knocks on your door? Two or three pieces, according to 77 percent of canadianfamily.ca users who answered our poll. Ask a neighbour how many kids to expect if you’re new to the ’hood. It’s better to have extra than to be caught short, so buy more than you think you’ll need. (And don’t forget to factor in the one, two or 75 treats you plan to scarf down yourself.) The last kid to knock on the door before you turn out the light may hit the motherlode, but who cares?
