How to keep it out of the mouths of babes: The Candy Fairy!
From my blog
If you ever saw the movie Elf
, you know that Santa’s elves live on candy. “We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup,” Buddy the Elf explains.
Don’t you think Santa’s kitchen must run low on supplies before Christmas Eve?
Not if the Candy Fairy can help it. She’s a sister of the Tooth Fairy, and she works for Santa Claus.
If, and only if, your parents are well connected, she will come to your house while you sleep on Halloween night – if you can sleep after eating all that sugar – and in exchange for a BIG pile of candy, she’ll leave you an early Christmas present from Santa’s workshop.
She’ll let you keep your favourites – maybe you want to keep the chips and the chocolate bars. You decide. She’ll take the rest and leave you a cool toy.
Ask your parents if they know the Candy Fairy.
Of course, that doesn't answer the question of what to do with it if the Candy Fairy doesn't show up and take it away.
