Don't ever leave home. Never!

Seriously, as a morality tale, its morals have been told better elsewhere. Things like don't stray from the path, and to be cautious around strangers. Oh, and I've long thought that the whole gingerbread/candy house thing kind of meant don't judge a book by its cover -- that something nice on the outside can be malevolent inside.

Some people think it's an anti-gluttony message, but think about it the kids were starving, so what else would they do if they came across an edible house?
