Re: Halloween. Plans?

Halloween is being 'Americanised' over here in the UK. Parents take their kids 'trick or treating'. That phrase was just not used when I was a lad in the 70s and early 80s. I have always gotten Halloween and Bonfire Night mixed up for some reason (presumably their closeness). We used to go 'guising' on Bonfire Night, which is a similar thing to trick or treating. You would go round your neighbours houses and tell a joke or sing a song and hopefully get some money or sweets.

For Halloween all we do is get a big bowl of sweets ready for the kids who come-a-knocking.
