As I drive around town as it gets closer to Halloween I wonder why I don’t see any teal pumpkins. Do people even know what it means? As a mother of a child with food allergies it’s saddening that more people don’t take on the idea of passing out non-food items for trick-or-treating. While we go for the fun of it since he can’t eat any of the candy it’s still kind of heartbreaking. There are so many kids around here that would be excited to get something they can actually enjoy rather than throw away. Hopefully this year more people will pass out some other options instead of candy.
