Shut up. It's a day to let kids dress up and have fun. Get off it.

If you want to let your kid become a spoilt little shit by allowing it to think it has a divine right to sweets etc, feel free.

Trick or treat = "Give me something even though I have done nothing to earn it, or else."


Wrong interpretation. You don't HAVE to give the kids anything. If you don't want to buy candy and hand it out, then don't. You're right, they have done nothing to earn it so therefore it won't be held against you to not give candy out on Halloween. I don't know why anyone would have to view such a trivial tradition by being defensive.

Since I'm kinda clueless about Halloween anyway, what happens if you say "trick" when they kindly inquire of you "trick or treat?"

It's not an inquiry, it's an exclamation -- you are expected to either not answer the door or hand out candy.

Typically, my family asks it of me to take the younger children out for the night; this year I wasn't asked to, so I had some fun in a loincloth, a can of spray paint, a bag full of propaganda, and a few friends from the local record store. May as well make the best out of what the day has become: an excuse to either gorge yourself on candy or engage in pranks.

Such conversation about Halloween would make Nietzsche roll over in his tomb.
Because I am more intelligent than you are.

Wherever this holiday may have come from doesn't really matter as what it is now is the "issue" so to speak. Stupid (and often times fat) American children with no point, purpose or future in life walking around at night to get free industrial chemical goo called "candy" that's been laced with refined sugars, dyes and Odin knows what else. Each junk when they're young and eat junk when they're old. Keeps the medical field prosperous and growing.

Ha, I don't understand why all of you are so against halloween. Sure, its unhealthy to eat a shit load of candy but it's fun when you're a little kid. Celebrating halloween is just a way to have fun, just as some find it fun to play instruments, or sports.

I'm with you on this issue. In fact, this holiday is much funner when you're older.

I remember being bored out of my mind going from house to house asking for candy, and being tired and sweaty in that fucking costume. And the only reason to do it was because all your friends did it.

Nowadays, it's a lot funner to dress up when you're older (late 20's for me) and go to adult Halloween parties. What is wrong with acting a little zany once a year?

But that's not trick or treating is it. WHY IS EVERYONE VERY SLIGHTLY MISINTERPRETING ME EVERY TIME??

Most of the kids I grew up with didn't actually go trick or treating though so I guess I am being a little unfair... they just threw eggs at people, peoples houses and cars.

You must have grown up with some truly moronic people. I'm sorry for you.

I grew up between two neighborhoods. One was the nice upper middle-class neighborhood, where parents took kids out trick-or-treating in cute costumes, and everything was over by nine.

The other was the lower middle-class border neighborhood, where everyone was a bit surly, and the resulting mayhem was so much fun we all went over there. Fireworks, eggs, fires, shaving cream, high explosives and something called a "shit hose" were in play.

My god, it was nostalgic. But most of those kids went on to live adulthoods as hellish as their childhoods.
