    I was told it was extremely improper to not have candy, as it causes Jews to be looked at as greedy and egocentric. Always just have some small candy, like lollipops, which you may keep in the house anyways, so that if there are extras, they aren’t wasted.

    Who exactly told you that?!?
    We don’t participate in pagan festivities. Period. End of story.

    Those who think we are greedy and egoistic thought that about us even when we lived in the shtetel, at a time when there were no”tricky-creepers”.

    Avodah Zora Mamash

    The origins of this holiday were a very vicious, violent and filthy form of avodah zora: including killing innocent people (human sacrifice) , necrophilia, vampirism (add another “lav” of not eating blood) etc. Look at the symbols, witches, ghosts, goblins, trolls, skeletons celebration of death etc. Give your child a example of true Yiddishe chinuch and stay far away. If they had a minhag to go around with a “yoizel” and would give you (or your child) a kosher candy if you kiss it, would you do it? Would you let your kid do it? V’hameyvin yovin.

    Chilul Hashem?

    It is never a chilul to keep the Torah even if the rest of the world doesn’t approve. Is bris mila and schita a chilul Hashem just because there are those who think Jews are bad for doing it?
