I can't understand why we would encourage our kids to go bothering strangers to practically demand they be given lollies and chocolates. And if they don't, they might do something feral back.
Even worse, we try to bring our kids up to be wary of strangers but then many young school kids go house to house on their own. What if they knock on the wrong door?
It's a silly tradition that has nothing to do with us nor with the values that sensible parents try to instill in their children.
