We've had four and have run out of 'treats' ... I wonder what 'tricks' are in store for us!

Trick or Treat - Which do you want tonight 
A trick or a treat
If your decision is right
than you'll give me something swee
I had zero trick or treaters..our town had a block party..in which all the children gathered for treats and goodies.

Now that is a VERY good idea! 'Trick and treat' is really an American custom. Here we used to have parties and played 'Bob Apple' and other such games.

we had one group, i threw eggs at them, it was funny. They shouldn't be trick or treating at 15, especially if they haven't even bothered to dress up

Certainly if they hadn't bothered to dress up, they should be taken in for begging! The whole point of dressing up was (in the old days) so that you shouldn't be recognised! I wouldn't waste good eggs on bad ones!

None, I was at work when the little ones were going round with their parents and someone called the police to the teenagers before they got to our door. I don't like trick or treat because the kids here think you're supposed to give them money for the treat and throwing stones at the windows is the trick.

It used to be money from the rich folks or cakes and ale from the poor - and ploughing up the doorstep was one favorite trick for those who weren't forthcoming. Mind you, that was Plough Monday, but it was a very similar custom.

We didn't have any at all, I think they were all at parties or something.

None, that I know of, they'd have to open the porch door to get to the doorbell and then they'd have to have someone with them tall enough to reach it, I heard a few screams and fireworks though, I made some nice ghost, tomb, spider and witch hat shaped roast potatoes for dinner, that's all I can be bothered with on Halloween.

Halloween is tonight..so it's hard to say. Though I don't expect to get any, I live way out of town and there is only a handful of children here. We go in to town to the park. Then do some trick or treating there. Even then it's not a lot of kids, because it's still very rural... but at least you know everyone and can trust that what your kids get is pretty safe. My daughter is 14 and age wise I think to old..but develomentally she is only about 8 and will be with some of her classmates...The people here are very nice and understanding and don't turn them away because they are "teenagers" because in reality...they aren't..If I lived in the city...I'd imagine she would be told she was to old.

pumpkin - interesting pumpkin
We haven't had any. I think I might have missed them as I saw loads of kids coming the opposite way from my house as I was coming back this evening!

We had none. We weren't expecting any, but it was still kind of disappointing. We live in the last house at one end of town, and it's out of the way for anyone to walk our way for just one house.

I had a big fat 0. We live out in a rural area, and there are no kids that come around here. Blessings, M&M
