Halloween, the most important day of the year, has long been complemented by the subsequent release of Jimmy Kimmel's annual I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy YouTube challenge compilation. 2019, of course, was no different.

"I wanna say something to those out there who think I do this because I enjoy being mean to kids," Kimmel said on Monday night's show when premiering the clip. "That is not true. I love kids. Not only do I love kids, I have written and illustrated a new children's book called The Serious Goose. Now, this is not a joke. It comes out Dec. 3. It's available for pre-order now and all the money I make from it goes to children's hospitals here in LA and around the United States . . . Remember that for the next five minutes as we endure the tears of disappointed children."

To enjoy and/or wince at this year's results of Kimmel's annual YouTube challenge, please consult the video at the top of this page. 

For those out there stuck with a litany of leftover Halloween candy this year, Mashable ran a guide on what to do with it all, ranging from the donation of your surplus to the celebration of "a convenient fake holiday." The choice, however inconsequential it may seem, is indeed yours.
