Really this is a sunday sunshine and sparkles post, but I want it posted before Halloween…

Our 6' candy chute is ready to be attached to the handrail! Come on, Halloween!!! + #fucovid19 #HalloweenHillbilly + Edit #1: a quick update, since some have voiced valid health concerns. This will be a completely "touch-free" experience for trick or treaters. There will be a sign at the bottom of the tube showing them where to hold their bags and buckets so the candy can drop right in. I, personally, will be wearing a mask and changing gloves frequently, and the candy will be from a factory-sealed bag that I'll open outside by the candy chute. + I want our youngins to be able to have some sense of normalcy and maybe a little bit of exercise in all this madness, and I've put a LOT of thought into how to do so safely, and I appreciate your concern. + Edit #2: another update, as I've received a lot of flack from people thinking this is overkill, and I should just hand out candy. I'm truly glad you're optimistic about this – I am! However, many people aren't feeling the same with it, and that's okay. We don't really know much about this thing yet. + I put this together from throwaway materials (a 6' x 4" cardboard shipping tube and stuff I already had) in about twenty minutes, and if it brings comfort to those who are a little more reluctant, awesome! My house is already usually pretty terrifying to kids at Halloween, and you can see from my profile pic how that might be the case. + If this candy chute makes things easier or safer, AND gives those with mobility challenges more of a chance to participate, then what's the harm? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, ya' know. + I appreciate your responses, and also your concerns.

      1. Thank you, Eliza! ❤ The extent of the Halloween celebrations this year will be the tiny pumpkins I set around the house to remind me that it's fall. They usually last through Thanksgiving and into spring. I do have fond memories of Halloween.

        I have lost track of the Jewish holidays since my husband died, except I do send Hannukah cards to his family. I believe in celebrating the holidays with joy! I know that you probably celebrate holidays with your students. I always enjoyed doing that. 🙂

        All the best! ❤ ❤ ❤ Cheryl *******

  1. The father who came up with this deserves a lot of appreciation — not “a lot of flack” from a bunch of ignoramuses.
    Now how about someone creating a way for homeowners without front steps and a handrail to hand out candy safely?
