I REALLY must disagree with your Women’s Page of October 30 which apparently hates the old practice of trick or treat. What is wrong with small children going round, with or without their parents, knocking on doors and carrying out this age-old ceremony?
We always stock up with bags of chocolate bars but hardly anyone comes round these days, which I think is very sad. We really looked forward to those little faces at the door and always are happy to supply small treats.
Luckily, my husband and I are both chocoholics and so none of the chocolate bought is wasted, but that is not the point. I deplore the modern mistrust that puts a stop to children being children and enjoying these once-popular demonstrations of innocent fun.
