  1. My Halloween knowledge is apparently pretty bleak, lol. I do love getting dressed up though. My favorite candy would be anything that involves chocolate.

  2. Interesting questions. Not sure of the answers. Will wait til you’re back to find out.
    My favorite candy is the Heath Bar. Hope we have good weather this Halloween and see lots of kids and great costumes. In a good year it seems like they are bused in to my neighborhood. 🙂

    Have a Happy Halloween!
