13 Reasons You Probably Don't Want to Take Your Kid Trick-or-Treating This Year
Your kid probably spends most of the year looking forward to Oct. 31 so they can get dressed up in their Halloween costume and parade around the neighborhood asking strangers for candy (honestly, you spend all year telling them to avoid strangers and it goes completely out the window come Halloween). For real though, we can't come up with a single good thing to come out of a night trick-or-treating with your family. Read through for 13 reasons you probably should just skip the tradition this year.
The candy tastes way too good.
It should be illegal, honestly.
Your kid's arms are going to hurt from carrying buckets full of candy around the neighborhood all night.
Those little arms can only take so much.
Your child might get a full candy bar at one house.
What’s with the extreme generosity?
There are ridiculous amounts of decorations everywhere.
Ugh, too many adorable pumpkins to look at!
Your child might get complimented on their costume.
Just great, now they might want to wear the outfit again sometime and you'll get your money's worth.
You won’t be able to handle all of opportunities for photos.
Your phone is already full of photos of your kid — how many more could you possibly need?!
The other kids will encourage your child to smile, laugh, and scream in delight.
There might be too many adorable babies dressed up in tiny costumes.
This may cause an overwhelming amount of cuteness that not all mere mortals can handle!
You child is going to have to face way too many difficult decisions.
Snickers or Twix?! This is all too much!
And then YOU will have to make tons of tough choices.
Having to decide between eating all of your child’s candy or just a few pieces is the hardest thing you’ll do all year.
There are probably going to be way too many houses to hit in one night.
That's just, like, way too much exercise.
There are going to be way too many decorative lights on the houses.
It’ll look way too pretty to the naked eye.
Your child might want to trick-or-treat again next year as a result.
Two years in a row dressing in an adorable costume to ask for free candy?! Are you insane?
