Bar Humbug to America's Halloween

Over the past few years there has been a curious, some may say disturbing, trend in Australia.
That of parents sending their children out onto the street begging for food from strangers.

Lets be straight about this. Most parents teach our children not to speak to people they don't know and certainly not to accept food or eat it if they don't know where it has come from.

Despite this there are those who ignore the dangers for their children, and disguise their children because of the embarrassment, so no one can identify them I suppose, and send them off begging door to door asking for boiled lollies from complete strangers.

There are those who try to say this is some American tradition, as if that magically makes it better, but please, do the rest of us a favour if you were one of those parents who encouraged their children to stuff themselves full of junk food including 100 types of sugar, please – don't send them to school today.

You may well say its all harmless fun, OK you stay home with them today and spare the teachers and our children the out of control sugar high.

All harmless fun you say? Turn It Up.
