What is the best part of Halloween? Is it the scary decorations everyone puts up or the haunted houses set up? The eerie yet interesting feel of the holiday? Or perhaps the parties and the perfect excuse to dress up like something out of the ordinary? For most of us, the answer is none of these. Don’t get me wrong, Halloween is great because of the spooky feeling and the fun aura it has, but there’s something else that truly makes it wonderful. I am of course talking about candy.
