Smarty Pants Me

I know some of you out there depend on my vast knowledge of shopping malls. Because of this, I thought I would pass along a valuable nugget of mall information regarding Halloween.

Did you know you can Trick or Treat at the mall? Because you can. And zillions of kids turn out every year to go Trick or Treating to stores instead of houses. I looked forward to working Halloween every year to see all the cute little kids that made it into our store for treats.

You can Trick or Treat at any time of the day (well, you might want to contact your local mall to find out for sure, but the malls I worked at had kids coming in at 10:00 AM) ALL DAY LONG.

Why is this great? Well, what if your kid secretly goes to bed kind of early and you want them to score some great candy for you? What if you want to take your kid in the afternoon? What if you don’t know or like your neighbors? What if it is too cold outside? What if your kid looks impossibly cute and you want as many people as possible to see them? These are just a few questions to think about when considering going to the mall instead of the alternative; going DOOR TO DOOR in the DARK when it may be FREEZING COLD.

I plan to take my kids to the mall to score some good sugar. That night, I’ll even let my two year old daughter, Hannah, stay up to see some of the Trick or Treaters that come to the door.

What a treat that will be for her.

I know what you’re all thinking right now . . . I’m such a smarty pants.

You are a smarty pants. That is a good idea. I might have to find out if our mall here does that.

That is a good idea. I had forgotten all about the mall.
