Muriel, will you go with your grandchildren through Calais to get candies?
Did you buy a bucketful of candies?

Is it common in Calais?

I know Krystyna bought candies for the kids... I will go there to get yummy treats Wink

Hi Gérard !
It has just begun to be Celebrated in Calais. Some people do it others don't. Anyway children love it. I have been doing that all day with my three grandchildren and I am exhausted ! They went poney riding last Monday and Tuesday so they were also able to join the riding school Halloween party. It was fun !

Hi everyone.

Where I live, celebrating halloween is very common.

I have been to a pub today and it was fully decorated with spider webs, banners, skulls, etc.. And the waiters had some costumes as well. It was really nice !

In the town, few people has a costume. The evening coming, a lot of children came and knocked the door. " Trick or Treat " ? They had treats from us.

Some were really cute and came with their parents. Some were about 4 years old, it is just melting my heart. Smile

Krystyna had 4 kids; kids who live in the building as there're oodles of digicodes to access.
I don't know if they went because they knew she is Australian or she looks like a witch Laughing

In addition to candies, she also had led candles changing colors and kids were marveled (single "l" in Am) at them.

Krystyna is very careful about giving wrapped candies. She told me that there had been problems in the US as "smart people" gave candies full of marijuana thinking it was funny. Sad

Muriel,

Some people think marijuana is good and should be taken by everyone.
What's that herb chewed by indians of South America to heal everything?


The outcome of thise events in the US is that nowadays parents are often going with their kids: a pity.

It is best to take those kinds of stories with a grain of salt. Stories about children intentionally being poisoned finding razors or needles in their candy usually can't be confirmed or turn out to be hoaxes (sometimes, they are jokes kids play on their parents!).

In the case of this year's panic over the possibility that children might be given marijuana laced candies, there is only one confirmed incident and that was an accident, not intentional. You can read about it here in this article:
http://www.forbes.com/sites/jacobsullum/2014/10/27/the-man-who-accidentally-gave-kids-marijuana-on-halloween/

You can read about the false spread of such stories here:
http://www.snopes.com/holidays/halloween/taintedcandy.asp

Anyways, this is really sad. When Halloween first started (well before I was born) it was common to give children homemade treats.

"Knocking on strangers' doors for goodies then became more common, but it wasn’t candy that was handed out at first. Trick-or-treaters would have received homemade items like cookies, cake, or popcorn balls, in addition to apples, coins, and small trinkets."
