Video Script

Hi, I'm Randall, and I'm here in front of our house. It's Halloween here in the United States, and uh, traditionally, people, uh, children, would go from house to house collecting candy; however, there is a growing tradition in many parts where families in a particular neighborhood will gather in a parking lot with their cars, decorate their cars and, uh, their trunks, and then, the children can go from car to car and collect, uh, candy.

Uh, one of the things we do at home, or course, we still have candy in our home, and what type of candy do we give out? The good stuff. In other words, the stuff I would want to eat when all of the trick-or-treaters have gone home.
