The number of trick-or-treaters is definately on the up in Brisbane. I think it's great fun and the kids have a ball dressing up, visiting houses they know and coming away with stacks of goodies. It's all good clean fun. But if I may be a bit bah-humbug here for a minute... where are the tricks? These kids just wander around getting treats for nothing and they don't know any different. What's the point? Growing up in London, I didn't have a huge experience with trick or treat but I do remember that on your rounds you were supposed to be armed with half a dozen eggs and a roll of toilet paper. "Trick or Treat" is supposed to be a threat, isn't it?
Being a responsible parent, I am somewhat torn here.
