Too Much Candy
This is one of the best Halloween stories online about Jay and his family. They are getting ready for Halloween. Jay’s mom is on the steps. She’s making a Halloween costume for Jay. Jay and his dad are decorating the front porch. There is a scarecrow on the swing, spiders in the corner, and paper bats hanging from the ceiling.
Now, it is time to carve jack-o’-lantern. They cut out the top, pull out the seeds, and finally cut out the face. There are two circle eyes, a triangle nose, and three square teeth. They put the jack-o’-lantern on the table on the front porch next to a big, scary bowl of candy. But, Jay’s mom and dad tell Jay, “You can have only one piece of candy each day!” Jay is not happy.

The next morning, Jay wakes up and remembers the candy. He puts on his backpack and gets ready to go to school. As he walks out the door, he grabs a big handful of candy and runs to school.

The eyes are a little scarier, the nose is a little smaller and the teeth are a little sharper. “What’s happening?” Jay scratched his head.
The next morning when Jay goes to school, he takes another big handful of candy and runs to school. When he comes back, the jack-o’-lantern is even scarier. The eyes are scarier, the nose is smaller and the teeth are sharper than before. “What’s happening?” little Jay thought.
