Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said,
Never take candy from strangers,
And then they dressed me up and said,
Go beg for it, I didn't know what to do! I'd knock on people's doors and go,
'Trick or treat'No thank you.

There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
- Scottish Saying
