One of my all time favorite pieces of advice early on was about the Halloween sugar faeries. In case anyone does not know them, particularly if your children are younger, I'd like to introduce you! If older, this will be much more challenging to pull off. In our house it is the Sugarplum faeries that visit on Hallow's Eve after all the candy has been collected. The kids all get to eat as much as they like on the night of collection but that night they put out their candy to the Sugarplum faeries, who gather all the candy for the sugar to begin making all the sweet treats for Christmas time. The faeries need a lot because there are all those gingerbread houses to be decorated, candy canes to be made, cookies for the tree, the list goes on. So they need all those little helpers on Halloween to help them do the gathering or they would never be able to meet the supply for Christmas.
