This year when you bring your little siblings trick or treating, or when you’re still trick or treating yourself, you may see a couple blue pumpkins on the doorsteps. These are pumpkins of change. These pumpkins are for children who can’t have candy because of behavioral problems or allergies. When you put a teal pumpkin on your lawn, it shows that you’re giving out little gifts instead of or in addition to candy. It can be pencils, little toys and games, or a simple box of crayons. Halloween should be a time for everyone to enjoy, and now these kids can enjoy it too! And just in case you were wondering, there are also allergy-free treats you can buy to satisfy every trick or treater.
