@SminkyPinky, they`ve been owned by Walmart for YEEEEARS. Tesco and Sainsbury`s are all going a bit nutty over it too.

It`s "TRICK" or treat.
I give out catsup packets & taco sauce from Taco Bell. It looks like candy in the dark.
They don`t know till they get home what they got.

Happy Halloween.

To point out though, Trick or Treat has been going in the UK since at least the 1980s, but yeah before that it was mainly seen as an obscure American thing.

Halloween was never much of a thing in England until the last thirty years or so (too close to bonfire night, maybe.)

"All Englsh pips now eat Turky on Christmas day like it`s a tradition."

Well we`ve been doing it for over 300 years... so it`s more than `like` a tradition. Or are you working off some obscure definition of the word?

Trick or treating in England became a recent tradition when kids saw American kids doing it on TV and thought that looked like a good thing. However, instead of kids turning up in cute costumes and expecting candy, you get a bunch of teenager hoodies turning up at the door expecting money, or they will egg your car. So, I totally disagree that American customs have spread throughout the world - just the bad bits.

@ Holygod, England is a small country and they wanna  hold on to their own traditions like Morris dancing.  They don`t have a custom of Holloween over there and are generally against anything fun.
American. culture does bleed (ihappy Holloween :-) into every country. At least this one is fun, for the kids.
All Englsh pips now eat Turky on Christmas day like it`s a tradition. It`s  not even an indigenous bird on that continent.

It`s.not a bad thing we should all be mixing it up, more colourful life that way.

& thank you for the bit of Fry.

Never been trick or treating and haven`t seen anyone else doing it for a few years. Halloween to me is just drunk people in make-up.
