We don't give the kids candy for Christmas or valentines. Our candy holidays are only Halloween and Easter and we make it last for 6 months till the other holiday comes around. My kids aren't huge candy eaters though.

Also, every child's birthday at school they come home with a goody bag.. I feel like candy is being shoved down my throat and I can't get away from it... Their prize for doing assignments in class is a tootsie roll.. Candy, candy, candy...

Thanksgiving doesnt have candy... (but you probably arent from the US are you?)

And Christmas, my kids dont get more than a couple peices of chocolate. The in-laws and me and DH all decided together it would be more of a fruitsnack and oranges kind of holiday. MIL puts crackers, snack pack muffins, real fruit snacks and stuff like that in their stockings. And their stockings at home have a real orange, a chocolate orange, and a candy cane.

And we don't do valentines day in our house.
