The grinch has decided to skip a couple of holidays this year.

A Fargo, N.D., woman named Cheryl called in to radio station WRIG this week to tell them about her plan to ruin Halloween.

Cheryl explained that, instead of candy, she will hand out letters to children that she considers obese in order to chastise parents to “step up” and end “unhealthy eating habits.” She also provided a copy of the letter.

“I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight…I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ‘cause all the other kids are doing it,” the woman said.
