There are several reason; the first is that this is basically an American tradition (it should stay there). 2. You are encouraging children to roam the streets asking people for candy. I have brought my children up not to take candy from anyone.
3. The whole concept of Halloween doesn't sit well with me (i.e. the witching hour etc). I just think it is ridiculous. It appears that the interest in it was very short lived in Australia (thank god).
