Well, my celebration was quite nice! We had a perfect evening for trick or treating, not too cold and no rain! Then, my nephew and I went down to our ritual spot at midnight. Absolutely gorgeous!

I turned all the lights off but the little beggars were still at the door.
I wouldn't have minded but in England the concept is rather lost on the natives it being a rather recent tradition.
I lived in Scotland for twenty years where it has more heritage and is called 'Guising' as in being dis'guised'.
The trick or treat element is taken litteraly from a Scottish perspective.
The kid has to perform a trick which can be anything but is usually a naff joke and has to be judged worthy of a treat,which is given anyway.
So the entire event is performance related.
In England,which has in recent years adopted the goings on via American media,it was unknown when I was a kid,people have completely got it wrong and it is just an excuse for begging with menaces.

However,my daughter,being a dyed in the wool Pagan,has a full on (child friendly)service with the kids in the garden.

When I lived near Hull they used to celebrate "Mischief Night" :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mischief_night - 30/10/10
Which usually meant petty damage, dismantling ones garden gate or throwing fireworks at people or putting them threw peoples letter box's. These rats could not be bought off by giving them sweets and used to terrorize the elderly living alone.
Luckily down in Bristol most do not know about this tradition. It is something I do not miss.
