Shower them with sweetness

I have come to discover in my lifetime that my synagogue, Shomrei Torah, isn't like other synagogues. For one, I find it much homier. Maybe because it's "my" synagogue, or maybe it's just the closeness or size of the congregation.

I mentioned to Adam that on Tuesday night, I was going over to weekend Bat-Mitzvah girl Amber's house to make little candy bags to throw at her after her Haftorah.

Google lets me know I'm not crazy, but I am curious to see who else has this custom.

Throwing candy after the Haftorah of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah is...

something that was done consistently at my synagogue
something I've heard of or seen in other people's synagogues
something I've never heard of
