The Halloween Contract Every Parent Needs

Print, sign and enjoy.

'Tis the season when my kids ask me -- on a daily basis -- how many more days until Halloween. I've decorated pumpkins, gotten costumes ready and planned for the many Halloween parties, parades and of course, the trick-or-treating.

What I haven't done is make sure that I am taken care of on this very important holiday. So I took matters into my own hands. I encourage all parents to use this contract to make sure that you get what's rightfully yours on October 31st.

You're welcome.


THIS AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) is entered into effective as of October 31, 2015 by and between Christina Anderson (“Parent”) and Dylan Anderson (“Child”).

  1. The Parent has the right to take any/all Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups obtained on or around Halloween.
