He is going to look obese but he is underweight, his costume includes a face mask (spiderman) and so it is not like she would recognize him.

    There are many things she could give out that is not candy or even food related.
    lol! I thought the same thing. How can you tell when there is multiple layers and snowsuits under the costume. Every kid looks like the michalin man

    OMG, I totally agree with this! I'd probably even help with it.

    If you don't want to pass out candy, then you turn off your front light and everyone knows to not go there. You don't answer the door and then give the ones that you deem overweight a nasty letter. And I'm sure we could probably find something in her lifestyle or eating habits that would warrant a nasty letter from someone else who so desired, kwim? Maybe she's thin but does she smoke, eat Cheetos too often, drink diet soda, not exercise, live on lettuce, drive everywhere, and so on?

    How hurtful

    I would rather have my children off-the-chart obese and have a kind heart than have the "perfect" body and a mean heart.

    Those who give stuff out on Halloween are under no obligation to do so. My children have received prayer books, doughnut coupons, stickers, temporary tattoos, pencils, toothbrushes, ear plugs and candy. I love Halloween and anything that would take away from the enjoyment for little kids is just wrong.
