So who is trick or treating this year? Trick-or-treating dates back through the ages and remains especially popular in America where Halloween is arguably one of the biggest events of the calendar. However, in the modern world, there seems to be a debate on this old pastime…so we’ve put together some (hopefully) helpful tips and feedback from our customers on the debate…
So what’s to like about Trick-or-treating?
The main thing we hear from all our lovely customers in our shop and online are that it’s wonderful to see kids dressing up, having fun and being involved in this customary practice. For most, the (hopefully idle) threat of a ‘trick’ is always thwarted by being given a ‘treat’.
Certainly with current debates around Scottish independence, we think it’s even more important to have our own English spirit and surely being one large community and having fun in our own communities can only help?
However, we know that for some Trick-or-treating can be a worry, and it’s a shame a few ‘bad eggs’ ruin the sense of fun for others. So, from speaking to customers and our own experience as parents, we have put together top tips for enjoying this Halloween

Happy to have trick-or-treaters?
If you are happy to have trick-or-treaters then putting out a pumpkin is a perfect way for people to know you are happy to have kids knock on the door!
Rather not have trick-or-treaters?
If you would rather not have trick-or-treaters putting a friendly sign on your door can stop you being disturbed. Or, if you’re nervous about answering your door, but want to get involved, why not put a bowl of sweets on the doorstep?
