I am relieved that some Brits on here are against trick or treating (the very fact that one small child in my class called it 'trickletreating,' and had no idea of the meaning behind the day says it all). I find it totally inappropriate for children , of any age, to go around demanding sweets for no known reason (what are they giving in return?) Vandalising houses and cars is another unacceptable activity that should be stopped. It is not part of our tradition. We have plenty of activities that are. I hate halloween bah humbug.
