    When I was a young a teacher on our street would require a Hallowe’en performance (poem, song) before giving us our annual Hallowe’en pad of paper and pencil. I now us this same “TRICK” with the children who show up at our front door. It’s surprising how much fun the kids have and I find it such a “TREAT”. We’ve had chorus lines, soft shoes, poems, stories, jokes and songs and I always get a great big “THANK YOU” as I place my annual treats in their bags…..no they arent’ pads of paper and pencils……lol!!!! I’d have to say this is my favourtie treat with the left over goodies placing 2nd.
