    Did you do it?

    Yes, I live in a village and everyone knows each other so there was no problem there.
    Do you let your kids do it?

    Nope but I would. You're just having bad reservations because something bad happened to you, doesn't mean it will happen to your son.
    Do you give stuff to trick or treaters?

    Nope but my ma and da do.

    I disagree in general with the existence of Haloween. It is nothing to do with anything, an excuse to go begging. But little children seem to like it. I'd say anyone trick or treating should be supervised by a responsible adult.

    It actually has Pagan roots.

    America just commercialised it.

    To a certain degree i don't mind. If say upto about 10 yr olds come round with an adult it's a bit of fun and some free sweets for the kids. But when you get 15/16 yr olds banging on ya door, who've made no effort what so ever then it's just scrounging and they can fuck off :)

    True.

    But it is still used as an excuse to go begging. Which is wrong.

    Not if you're a kid. It's just a way to get free sweeties, where's the harm in that?

    Making me get off my arse, thats the harm :p

    If it shall be celebrated, it should be celebrated for what it is. And how many people would agree to join in a pagan festival that isn't about scrounging sweets and lobbing eggs at peoples houses?

    Yes. Begging little bastards.

    Carol "singers" can fuck off, too.

    Aye, they are the worst. 1x Jetwash is a good weapon. Also, an Air Rifle works too.

    Carol Singers... the worst of the worst. Just tell them you are a Satanist, or Jehova, or Jew, or something.

    The words "no thanks we're jewish" come in very handy at Xmas for all the singers, that and taking the doorbell batteries out!

    I love Halloween, I always used to trick or treat and have got a big bowl of sweets at the ready for any that roll up this year.

    There's always the worry about something bad happening, knocking on strange doors is definitely exposing children to more danger than they'd usually be exposed to in your average night... but if they're supervised (or when they're a bit older, as long as they stay in the locality) and well-behaved I don't see the problem, I'll definitely take my children trick or treating in the future.
