Of course today is Halloween and that usually means handing out candy to kids. What was funny is that more people here nowadays give money to the kids instead such as a one dollar coins. Reason being is that they thought the kids would like it more anyways since they can buy whatever they want. A lot of people are shocked by that. While I think that is expensive, I don’t see why it is strange though.
For example, it’s not uncommon for people to purchase coupon books for Halloween where for each coupon the child has they can redeem it at some place for like a free ice cream cone. Although, it would be kind of weird if all of a sudden like a whole block of people all gave the kids money. Guess it would be like Chinese New Years instead of Halloween after.
