I went out and gathered candy with my nephews on Halloween night. It was my first time in 15 years to participate in this tradition. Kind of a silly practice really, yet kind of cool too. I wonder who started the whole practice of trick-or-treating in the first place. I'd like to think it has some profound historic purpose. Or maybe it was created in an effort to bring communities together. The world may never know.
There is one thing we can be sure of though. Mars, Nestle, and Hershey's are doing quite well these days.
