Halloween never been a tradition for me growing up. I remember once trick or treaters knocked on my parents door. They were confused, but gave them each some potatoes thinking their parents were too poor to buy groceries. They grew up in a place where you’d expect that from poor gypsies and their English not that great to understand what the kids were asking for.
So growing up with that I find the whole thing a bit strange. Would make more sense to knock and beg for proper food. Would think it could be a fun way for kids to go around collecting food for the less fortunate.
