Halloween is fast approaching and we’re planning fun activities for everyone.
For adults, check out our spooky book discussion on the creepy short stories of Edgar Allan Poe. We’ll also be commemorating Mr. Poe’s birthday and death with an intriguing look at his final days with this stellar program.
Teens can check out a special teen-only viewing of the eerie movie Coraline!
But what’s so cool about Halloween anyway? Is it the costumes, spooky houses, scary movies or candy? Well, in my opinion it has to be the candy. Candy is center stage of the Halloween holiday. My favorite is an Almond Joy bar – which, by the way, didn’t even make the list.
We did a little poll and the top ten candies according to our local library taste bud sources are:
3. Tootsie Rolls
4. Life Savers
5. M & Ms
6. Reese’s Pieces
10. Candy Corn
What’s your favorite Halloween candy? What is the candy that you will sneak out of your child’s Trick-or-Treat bag? Post your comment!
