The little girl was not ready to share her Halloween candy with anyone and tried to scare people off with a note that appeared wholesome to many.
Halloween is the most-awaited holiday for any child as it involves a lot of candies and fun dress-ups. But, one common hassle that parents face during Halloween is the sharing of candies. Kids tend to get too protective over the candies they collect after a long trick-or-treating expedition. And if someone tries to steal their treasure, that person might be at the receiving end of a massive tantrum. u/HoneyBrezze123 shared the cutest warning note written by their overprotective niece to anyone trying to take her Halloween candy on Reddit.
The 7-year-old girl, knowing the possibility of her candy being stolen, was smart enough to write a cautionary note so that no one would even dare to touch her candies. In her note, she wrote, "Do not touch. I will hunt you down. I will say these things to you." She must have been inspired by the movie "The Little Rascals" because what followed in her note, resembles Alfalfa's letter to Darla in the movie that read, "Dear Darla, I hate your stinking guts. You make me vomit. You're scum between my toes. Love, Alfalfa." She tried to scare the reader by writing, "I hate your stingy guts. You make me hurl. You are scum between my toes." She also signs the letter off in an adorable way "Love, Ema."
Several Reddit users had great responses to this cute little note by the 7-year-old Ema and some were able to relate to it as well. u/Frank4202 mentioned, "At least she signed it with love." Another user, u/WoungyBurgoiner, jokingly wrote, "I was thinking about taking some candy, but I don’t think I could handle her saying those things to me so I decided against it." The little girl's warning was backed by u/Busy_Weekend5169, who wrote, "Well, Halloween candy is serious business." u/rainbowsforall could relate to Ema and wrote, "I had to be serious about my candy stash as a kid because I rationed for the year but my brother would finish his in less than a week or two."
Many loved the way the little girl used the "Little Rascals" reference. u/heartofatexan wrote, "Emma is quoting, paraphrasing really, the 1990s version of the The Little Rascals." Another user, u/thawkzzz, added, "Quoting Little Rascals. I like her already." Referring to the one who posted the note, u/TootsNYC suggested, "You should get your hands on some extra candy somewhere and slowly methodically sneak a few into the stash every day. Bonus points if you can find something that she doesn’t already have. Hide the new ones at the bottom."
There's more to the holiday season than just candies, food and decorations. Families come together to experience joyful instances like this which goes on to become a memory for life. Despite Ema's adorable forewarning, the love she has for her family can be seen in the way she signed the note as "Love, Ema." The 7-year-old's note was cherished by everyone who read it.
