    A treat definitely !! Now that our (only) son is 22 and has left home, my wife and I have lots of fun (that's MY treat) carving pumpkins and handing out HUGE bags of candies and fun toys. We don't get many kids anymore, probably a function of the age of the neighbourhood population, so the ones that do knock on our door find it worth their while.
    Two more things :
    1) Every kid who knocked on our door this year said "thank you" - not bad eh?

    and

    2) laz .... my wife would commit murder for a box of Mounds bars ... can't get 'em in Canada any more ... just tell me what it's gonna' cost me and a cheque will be in the mail

    cheers eh?

    Neither. American 'Trick or Treat' has nothing to do with All Hallows Eve, nor with the equinox

    Any kid who knocked the door here would be met with a blank face - we didn't even notice the date.

    Ah Christmas Carollers... I LOVE them! I insist on hearing the entire carol, and if they only sing the first couple of lines they get nothing.
