Candy is a luxury
In response to the trick or treater mother who was disappointed (“Crummy Halloween” Nov. 10-16), please give some thoughts as to why houses were darkened. Many people are struggling to make ends meet and buying bags and bags of candy for in-town treaters is very difficult. One family I know in the village bought 30 bags of candy and was still short. $100.00 for candy to some may seen paltry but in these times of struggling to put food on the table, candy must have been low on the priority lists.
