    Years ago, while I was still in, I heard coworkers talk about jws leaving candy on their porch. I had to tell them I knew nothing about that practice and that I thought it sounded kind of cheesy to be honest. Over the years I 've heard the same comments about jws leaving candy behind when they find no one at home... Whats up with that? Is it official policy? Why would a company with child abuse scandals be leaving candy,of all things?

    never heard of this before. sure it wasn't mormons?

    I think that is someone else. JWs only leave behind literature.

    That's what I thought at first, but I talked to each of them, these were people who took the time to talk to the witnesses. The candy often accompanied literature. The reason I was thinking it might be somewhat official is that it's occured in different areas of the PNW over time.

    you mean Pacific Northwest? Was it that Brach's candy?

    Is this some sort of Halloween in reverse?

  • duffy

    Yes, I do mean the Pacific Northwest, sorry. I t was bulk candy so it could have been Brach's.

    If a JW is doing it, it is their personal proclivity. Never heard of it in 50 years, several states and countries. Maybe it's Reverse Halloween.

    Naw it's just a closet apostate leaving behind a little something that will help get rid of the taste in the "householder's" mouth after reading that crap er literature.

    LOL Goshawk

    I don't remember anything on the monthly report that showed candy placements. Was it next to magazines or books?
