    A very good editorial cartoon, without the usual political slant. I am very favorably impressed!!

    Must be a Democrats house. That means that any child with candy will have it taken away and it will be given to those too lazy to go out and work for it themselves.

    @Zipi

    Too lazy? A kid and candy? How about the Compmite hockey player who broke his leg in practice and can’t get up the steps? Or how about the child in the wheel chair who can’t navigate the narrow and uneven sidewalk from the street to the house? I suppose they are just too lazy to trick or treat for themselves? And yes, I saw both last year. I don’t have steps but I do have a narrow sidewalk and I watched them at the grand Victorian house across my street.

    If it’s a Democrat’s house they are probably giving out tofu cubes anyway because they are “good for you.”
    Skip the house and go find some sane adults.

    @Mr. King

    Interesting isn’t it? An obscure, almost unheard of band started this surge on fox costumes. Silly m, I was thinking your link was to some fine upstanding reporting from Fox “News”
    .
    “…fine upstanding reporting from…” You can stop laughing now.

    Makes about as much sense as your query. But nice try.

    Ahem.


    The cartoon’s theme is, as I understand the Americanised form of Hallowe’en, trick or treating for sweets (candy).


    You’re telling me kids in the USA go door to door and don’t beg.
    They instead provide a service in exchange for goods.
    i.e. “trick or treat”


    Sounds like extortion but ok, I’ll let that pass. Let’s call it “work”.


    DrC, gotta go with ol’ Greg on this point. They aren’t begging; they’re working a protection racket.

    Re: @ZIPI’s comment: I’m pretty sure this video explains his sentiment. Also note the kid who says “This is my candy. I worked hard for it.

    Yeah, I know. The various European forms were taken across the pond years ago.
    It has come full circle, with the original traditions in Europe mostly having fallen away or not widely played out. However, over the last 20 years or so, the Americanised version has returned to Europe, in part because of the popularity of Hollywood movies representing your ‘Halloween’.


    I wasn’t aware Hallowe’en was based on European traditions as in South Africa, where I grew up, ‘Halloween’ was considered an American thing, only seen in movies we saw. The recent European migrants there did not celebrate the original similar traditions, most having fallen into disuse already by the time they had migrated, so didn’t bring them across.


    The commercialised aspect of it is also responsible for the American version becoming very popular here.


    Any religious aspects of it appears to have gone. I see kids from all backgrounds dressing up and going “trick-or-treating” here in the UK.
    Meanwhile, the traditional for this time of year in the UK, “a penny for the Guy” for Guy Fawkes night I used to read about in British books as a kid, seems to have died out.
