Every holiday has its purpose. Thanksgiving is about appreciating what you have; Valentine's Day is dedicated to celebrating the one you love, and the 4th of July gives us the chance to showcase our love of country. Halloween is devoted to the acquisition of candy while wearing silly clothing, and we're not making any apologies for it.
Take the opportunity to celebrate the true spirit of the holiday by choosing costumes related to your favorite sugary treats. M&M getups are always cute, or the two of you can pair up as Tootsie Rolls, lollipops, jelly beans or even sticks of gum. Truly enterprising mothers can construct many of these costumes from scratch with little effort, but no one will hold it against you if you opt for store-bought versions. Either will look both adorable and delicious!
