I was never a fan of Halloween, not even as a child. It wasn't only because I had a deprived childhood. I never saw the point; 364 days of the year the people ignore you, one night the dress up and expect you to give them sweets - how does that work for you?
Will and Grace
In one episode of Will and Grace, one of the characters restricted his children to eating only three sweets because they rot teeth. That is a good idea.
Trick or treat
The trick here is if you buy a book from the charity http://hereiamattheedge.blogspot.co.uk/p/the-peacock-writers.html#.VjIKvtXhDnA you'll get a good read from a selection of #Indie writers. The treat is the writers see no money for the sales, all the money goes to #charity. You get a good book and the satisfaction of knowing the money is going to a good cause.
