Christmas, halloween, etc

so i'm new at this (being a diabetic i mean) and i was just wondering how other people with type one handle holidays like christmas and halloween and thanksgiving. do you eat a lot or try not to eat all of the holiday foods? just wondering...


i eat pretty much what ever I feel like eating.  If it has carbs I bolus for it.  If I want cake I bolus for it, same for candy, breads, whatever.

It's easier when you start out, to stick to a lower carb diet and figure out your body and the whole eating and taking insulin thing.  You'll be a pro in no time and then eating is just limited (or unlimited) to taking insulin.
