    Us Queensland's don't have a public holiday tomorrow!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    She would get the area that she wanted to take her kids - letter boxed and the note would say
    - leave a light on if you want to participate
    - we will be knocking between 6pm and 7pm (ie set a limit)

    some people organise ribbons or pumpkins to indicate they're willing to join in.
    I don't like australians celebrating halloween, but if it must be done, the above is the way to do it IMO. We get several kids each year knocking on our door - we just don't answer our door on halloween night anymore(nothing worse than opening your door to a few kids who are hoping to get a treat and they haven't even offered to mow your lawn hahahaha). Good luck to anyone who wants to celebrate it, i'm not going to stop you, but i don't want any part in it.

    A Scottish lady I walk dogs with - said that they celebrated Halloween when they were in Scotland - and the kids were all required to do some party trick or perform something or sing a song - to get their treat.

    It did feel weird - bunch of kids rock up - say "happy halloween" or "trick or treat" and I'd say help yourselves... and they were very polite and would take one or two things total - not even one of each thing... and we'd say bye and happy halloween again. There wasn't always any kind of conversation. I was hoping frosty would get to do some tricks but she was very excited by the whole thing and just became a naughty pat monster.

    Didn't get any kids knocking on the door. Did have the cars toilet papered and egged though. Little bastards.

    There were even kids coming to businesses trick or treating then egging the businesses when they didn't get anything.

    Insert massive line of expletives here. This is why I don't like kids. Grrrr!
