Ban Trick or Treating?

Again this year the subject of banning Trick or Treat is being raised. Some of the bigger children can be intimidating, nasty and menacing, egged on by the fact that after all it's Halloween and it's the time to be a little dark. Some doors have been pummelled by eggs and paint. Some pensioners especially (but not exclusively) are reluctant to come to the door. Is it time to draw a line under the old tradition and ban Trick or Treat?

Err no. That's vandalism with a halloween excuse. Same thing as people cooking their neighbour's guinea pig for a Christmas dish. Are you going to cancel Christmas dinners because of that?

Why are you speechless Princess Geena? Because people are being harassed or because they are calling for the practice to be banned?

I read of this a few years ago. But only a very small minority of people wanted to ban trick or treat. I would suggest that children above 8 or 9 should not really do it. But how to really impose a legal ban on things like that? I always give treats and I always enjoy it; never had a problem yet.
