How to \”handle\” Halloween

How to \”handle\” Halloween

\"halloweenIt\’s that time of year – the unofficial start of the unofficial holiday \”Butterfest\”, that period from October 31st to January 1st.
Seems like starting with our wickedly wonderful tradition of begging for treats, comes a landslide of temptations and an overload of sugar and fat.  How DO you manage to enjoy but not overdue, especially with candy?

Weight Watchers has some great suggestions:
*Buy late and don\’t open the bag until Halloween night, less temptation.

*Choose candy you don\’t like.

*Give out more candy as the night goes on so there\’s little to none leftover.

*Start the evening with a full stomach, you\’ll be less interested in the sweet treats.

*Manage the kids\’ haul.  Have a game plan for parsing out candy over the coming weeks.

*Remember you can buy candy ANY time of year.  No need to load up now.
