More children than ever took to the streets this year to 'trick or treat' their neighbours and friends.  Hoards of little witches and cute devils waved buckets at neighbours front doors in the hope of some lovely, bewitched sweeties being thrown in!

Going out trick or treating has become more and more popular over the years.  It used to be something they did in America, not here in England, but it has gradually become part of our annual festivities.  According to an ASDA survey reported in the Daily Telegraph, if you are dressed as a cute witch, skeleton or vampire you are likely to get more sweets than if you are dressed as someone like Freddie Kruger. Something to bear in mind!

Here are some other tips to bear in mind for next year:

  • Wear a good costume (nothing too scary)
  • Only go to doors with a pumpkin in the window or something that says a) they are in and b) the are getting involved in Halloween and that probably means c) they have treats to give away!
  • Take a cute child with you... you'll get more sweeties that way!
  • Be polite when the door is answered... you want to make friends not annoy people!
  • Go in small groups - its more fun!
  • Make sure you don't let the children eat all the sweets at once! Count them, colour sort them, build a tower with them, see how far they stretch end to end and eat them over a long period of time... along with plenty healthy foods along the way!

An Australian toddler was so set upon getting himself some sweets from a vending machine that he climbed in through the tiny hatch and get himself stuck inside!  The two year old boy climbed into the machine in an Italian restaurant, while his friends celebrated a child's birthday party nearby.

His Mum said she had been playing with him and then the food arrived so she took her eye off him for 2 minutes.  The next thing she knew, he was inside the machine.

A local locksmith had to be called to set the little boy free.  He had been inside for nearly an hour!

The restaurant has since removed the machine and gave the family a voucher to come back for dinner!
