    Trick or treating originated in medieval Britain in the form of 'souling'. Halloween itself has Celtic origins.

    So what? I see nothing wrong with the revival of a popular folk tradition. It is one of the few aspects of our country's rich folklore that has retained any significance and it would be a shame for it to vanish into obscurity.

    No. I love halloween. This weekend has been well fun. I don't like the americanisation and consumerism, but the festival itself is great.
