Halloween Questions for Our Friends

We are currently working on a Halloween monster global project with our friends in Mr Avery’s class. Mr Avery’s class lives in Massachusetts and, like many people in the USA, they celebrate Halloween.

We were hoping to post the results of our monster global project for 31st October but Mr Avery’s school closed for Hurricane Sandy. Look out for the post in a few days!

Halloween celebrations are not too common in Australia, although over the last few years we have noticed more shops selling Halloween supplies and more people celebrating the day.

4KM and 4KJ have some questions for our friends overseas about Halloween. We would love you to answer one or more of the question below in a comment!

  1. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    Fantastic post about halloween, we don’t do halloween, but I did it once when I was in kinder garden.This is how I started.

    I dressed up as a gost and we had a plastic pumpkin head as a basket.We went to different houses and we got a lot of chocolate I shared it with my brother (Luke).

    My brother couldn’t come because he was to little. We had to save some for a few nights. Tonight I can’t go because I have basketball training for the Leopold Lakers.

    • Dear Thomas,

      Thank you for leaving a comment on the blog! Your comment is very high in qualatiy, (that’s why you should have a blog.)

      I agree with you on what a fantastic post about Halloween. I trick or treated once with someone my pearant’s know, (his wife was Mrs Luskim.)Tonight I’m going to Indi’s house for a snack, a little boggie and then trick or treating. Bronte and Charlotte are coming too.

      If I don’t get any treats then dad told me to trash the letter box.Yeah, the reply wasn’t any good with that’s my opinion. So I have to go now.

      • Dear Iesha,

        Thanks for the reply and also all of the nice comments.

        I know Mrs Luscums husband his name is Horward. I do grade five six basketball training with him.

        If I didn’t get any any treats I would of thrashed the house, so you can tell I won’t be happy.

      I went trick or treating with Leah and Kealee.We saw each other at Ms Luscombe’s house so we trick or treated together.

      I had a great time.

  2. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    We’re so excited to be working with you on this project. I can’t wait to see if anyone’s drawings are really close! You definitely have to be very descriptive in your writing so that others can follow it really closely!

    As Mrs. Morris wrote about, we just had the last two days off because of Hurricane Sandy. It got really windy and our school didn’t have any power! I’ll be putting a post up about it this week so you’ll have to check it out. I got some video from when I went down to the beach of all the waves! The power is now back on though so we’ll be back tomorrow and I’ll have my students try to draw your monsters.

    Your monstrous friend,

      Hi, I’m Skye and I am from 4KJ (Miss Jordan’s class).

      Thanks for leaving a fabulous comment on our blog. We love hearing from you. 🙂

      I think this project is a great idea. I was with a partner and her name is Ehberneese. We called out monster Fairy Floss Alien. I also loved describing our monster.

      I can’t wait to see if the drawings from our class and your class look the same.

      4KM and 4KJ can’t wait to see the post and the video.

      I don’t usually go trick or treating, but I’m going with my best friends this year for a party. I’m going as a horse riding zombie (I’m fully 110% horse crazy).

      again, thanks for the comment.

      Your friend,
      Bronte :mrgreen: 😛 😯

  3. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    Thank you so much for putting a post about Halloween. BOO!

    Yes I do celebrate Halloween and as you know I live in Leopold.

    I celebrate it because I love the lollies and the joy of seeing the creepy front yards with the scary decorations!

    For Halloween I love to TRICK or treat and love eating my lollies also. Obviously what else would I use them for silly me!

    Well for me Trick or treating works if I don’t get at least one sweet well you better watch out for my trick! Bwa ha ha ha!

    For Halloween I change costumes last year I went as a joker and all the other years I mainly wear a vampire as I am today.

    I don’t usually decorate my house but I got a bag from the Geelong show and it has fake cobwebs and spiders so I might put it in the drive way!

    From your student,

    Clancy

    PS: Happy Halloween!

    PPS: BOO!

    • Dear Clancy,

      Thanks for the comment. I ended up doing halloween and am really happy what I got, at one of the houses I got a big pack of smarties.

      We didn’t get to go to much of the houses, but we also went out of the court. also at one house I got a double mint fredo frog and a kinder surprise.

      Ms Luscums house had so many decorations and she got a lot of people to and had great lollies to. Did you dress up your house with halloween decorations?

      I wouldn’t like to get only one lolly so I would do the same and trick everyone.

      The costums I have dressed up as are a ghost and a scull with a nail trough my head, woooooo.

      It would be scary if you put a lot of real spiders and real cobwebs along the drive way. But we have never decorated our house.

      I will give you a list of some of my lollies.
      smarties, fredo frogs,sour straps, red skins and lolly pops.

      from your friend,
      Thomas

    • Dear Jess and Georgia,

      I also like it too.
      I don’t celebrate.

      your buddy Brooklyn ahearts;

  6. Dear 4KM, 4KJ and blogging buddys,
    We have never really celebrated halloween. My parents (travis’s grandparents) always said it was an American tradition, just like their thanks giving so it is not something I have taught my own kids.
    I think its fun to dress up but it is egually important to know what halloween means.

    Bad luck to Mr. Avery that you couldn’t get to us. It is important that you are all safe and sound, that is all that matters.

    Are there any other traditions people have chosen to celebrate throughout the year?

    From,
    Melissa and Travis

    • Dear Melissa and Travis,

      Thank you for commenting on the 4KM and 4KJ blog!

      I don’t really celebrate Halloween either. This year (yesterday) I went Trick or Treating to some houses around my court.

      My family don’t celebrate any other traditions that are American, but my family do celebrate Birthdays, Christmas and Easter.

      Your Blogging Buddy,

      Georgia 😆

  7. where i live we do trick or treating and i always get a ton of pieces of candy.This year I just wore a mask because i didn’t want to dress up but last year i was a clown ad the year before that i was a werewolf.when it is Halloween my family and I make our house look really spooky and we usually have a little Halloween party at my uncles house.

    • Dear Nate,

      Thank you for leaving a comment on the blog! This year I didn’t get much lollies. I just got 10 lolly pops, 6 chocolate bars, 4 fizzy lollies and 5 normal lollies.

      Once I wore a witch costume, and yesterday I was a skeleton. My family doesn’t celerbrate Halloween but I do. Last night I went with my friend, to trick or treat.

      From your new friend,
      Iesha 😀 mrgreen:

  8. We celebrate Halloween because it is an American tradition. The kids would dress up in costumes such as dogs, angels,TV characters, etc. They would walk around a neighborhood and ring the people’s doorbell (or knock) and would say, “Trick or treat!” The adults would then place some candy in the bag the kids are using to hold it. You can decorate your house for Halloween (it’s not required) with plastic bats, fake green witches, and little statue black cats. I go trick or treating every year!

    • Dear Eva,
      Thanks for the comment.I don’t go trick or treat but I go and scear me classmates and the teacher.Shes jumpy:twisted:.

      If I could dress-up I would be a dark knight.

  9. Thanks for the questions. We do celebrate Halloween here because it’s fun for all the kids to get candy. For Halloween we mostly put up Halloween orange lights decorate outside scary ghosts and hand out candy to anyone who comes to are door and says trick or treat. trick or treating, what you do is wear anything you want like a ghost a superhero or some costume and go up to a house and ring or knock the door say trick or treat and they give you candy, it is very cool. Like I said before you can decorate your house with lights or skulls but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. Thanks for asking

    • Dear Austyn,

      Thank you for commenting on our class blog, by the way my name is Hannah. I am from 4KJ.

      I go trick or treating somtimes, but I only do it for fun and to get lollies. This year (yesterday) I went trick or treating and I dressed up as a zombie. I got heaps of lollies.

    from,nate

  11. Dear Everyone,

    I celebrate Halloween where I live, and I celebrate it because I like to become a role model or something fun. Plus I REALLY like candy.

    For Halloween I dress up, walk around my neighborhood, say TRICK OR TREAT, and hopefully get some candy.

    For TRICK OR TREATING, how it works is that you walk around to your friend’s houses and say TRICK OR TREAT. Then hopefully they will give you some candy.

    I wear whatever my heart desires, for Halloween, as long as my family likes it, too.

    Personally, I do not decorate my house for Halloween, even though it might be really fun!

    From,
    Liz

    • Dear Liz,

      My name is Liv and I am in Miss Jordan’s class this year.

      Thankyou for the great comment! We loved hearing from you and would love to hear from you again. What country do you come from? What year level are you in?

      It’s good that some people celebrate Halloween. I don’t, but I know Americans are big fans of it. Lollies aren’t my favourite food, but I like them sometimes.

      How many times have you done Trick or Treat?
      How many people in your country celebrate Halloween?
      What’s the most famous costume for Halloween?

      Normally, lots of people come to my house to Trick or Treat, but this year we only had one. It was a bit surprising!

      From your new blogging buddy,
      Liv 😆

  12. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,
    Great questions. Yes, I do celebrate Halloween here because it is a fun tradition the US does. It is really fun! For Halloween I usually go to a party with my family. We go trick-or-treating and have a blast. For trick-or-treating we dress up in costumes, like ghosts, pumpkins, the latest movies and much much more. This year I was a cheerleader for our school. I grabbed my bag and walked up and down the streets and rang peoples door bells and say “Trick-or-treat!” Then they put yummy candy in our bags and then we go to the next house. We repeat that a lot of times until our feet get tired. It is only once a year so I look forward to doing it again next year. Yes I do decorate my house for Halloween. I put plastic pumpkins on the floor and plug them into the wall and they glow. I also stick some stickers to the door, and put huge blow up decorations in the front yard. When it’s dark out they look so cool!!
    Well, thank you so much for asking us questions and I hope your country starts the holiday Halloween! Bye!

    • Dear Gracie,

      Thank you for leaving a comment on our blog! I am Sophie and I live in Geelong, Australia.

      I have been trick or treating once two years ago I thought it was really fun.

      Over the years what has been your favourite costume you have worn?

      I didn’t go trick or treating this year but two years ago I went (as I mentioned before) and I dressed up as a witch.

      All the decorations you put on your house sound cool. Not many people over here decorate their houses but some people do like two teachers t our school.

      From your blogging buddie,
      Sophie

  13. Yes I do celebrate Halloween where I live! I celebrate it because it’s really fun to dress up and go trick or treating! What I do for Halloween? Well I like to decorate my house with spooky things like fake skeletons and ghosts. Also, I like to dress up in a costume when I go trick-or-treating. What is trick-or-treating? Well you dress up in a costume, then get a bucket, then go door to door saying,”Trick or Treat!”. When you ask people will come to the door and give you candy! Usually trick-or-treat is one or two days ahead of Halloween. What do you wear on Halloween… I wear a costume!! A silly costume, or sometimes a scary costume. This year I was an Angry Bird. The red one to be exact. It’s very fun! Oh! Yes I do decorate my house when Halloween comes around. With fake skeletons, ghosts, and even zombies. Make your house look scary when Halloween comes around! Happy Halloween everyone!

    • Dear Julia,

      Hello, I am Skye and I am in 4KJ!

      Thanks for visiting our class blog and leaving a wonderful comment! Just wondering where are you from?

      I do celebrate Halloween but my family don’t put decorations or anything like that under our varander or on our windows. I have only been trick or treating once and I had a lot of fun. It was last year. I went with my best friend and we got lots of lollies and chocolate.

      Sorry about the long paragraph.

      That’s interesting that you dressed up as a red Angry Bird. Did you like the costume? I have got the Angry Birds game on my iPod, do you have the Angry Birds game?

      Sounds like you really enjoy Halloween! Your house must have looked scary!

      From,
      Skye

  14. yes i do Halloween because i love candy and playing with it and much other things.

    well i dress up in an costume like a super hero or a cowboy you could do something scare or not

    well trick or treating is very fun because you get free candy

    well this year i was a skeleton and you could be anything you like
    well that’s the fun part you put spiders pumpkins and other scare things

    • Dear Nick S,

      Thank you for commenting on our blog, I don’t really celibrate Hallloween but this is my first time celibrating it.

      I didn’t dress up I just wore causal clothes, I love getting candy but not playing with it. I agree with you Trick or Treating is very fun last night I did some Trick or Treating,

      I was suprised that no one came and said Trick or Treat. Last year people knocked on my door and said trick or treat but we didn’t hear them knocking and we didn’t give them any lollies so they threw eggs on our window.

      So I had to clean it up 🙁 they threw 4 eggs at my front window.

  15. Yes we do celebrate Halloween in Pewaukee. We celebrate it for fun. For Halloween we dress up in costumes and go trick or treating. Trick or treating is where you go door to door saying trick or treat and they give you candy. You wear a costume. I was Katniss Everdeen. We decorated our house. Some people don’t though.

    • Hi Izzy!

      My name is Liv and I am in 4KJ, Miss Jordan’s class this year.

      And what a fabulous comment it was you left. You seem a quality blogger and commenter.

      I had never heard of the place Pewaukee until I looked it up! It sounds like an interesting place.

      I don’t celebrate Halloween. I know some people that do. I’ve never been Trick or Treating.

      How many times have you been Trick or Treating?
      How many people in your town celebrate Halloween?
      What’s your favourite costume to dress up in for Halloween?

      Isn’t Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games?

      Your new blogging buddy,

      Liv 😆

  16. I do go trick or treating where I live. It’s very fun! You go trick or treating for Halloween and maybe watch scary movies. For trick or treating you dress up in a costume going door to door in your neighborhood getting candy. For Halloween you dress up in a costume of your choice. Yes I do decorate my house. We will put fake spider webs on the bushes and put carved pumpkins on our door step.

    From,
    Griffin

    • Dear Griffin,
      Thank you for leaving us a blog comment.
      This year I did not go Treating.So i did not decorate my house.I heard that lots of houses did have

      I was suprised that no one came to my house but lots of my friends went.Do you no any one that went Trick or Treating?

  17. For Halloween the most important thing is you must have a costume it can be anything from a Clown to box of cereal it can be scary or funny. then when you are ready with your costume on you go to peoples houses ring there door bell and they give you candy it can be a piece of candy to three king size candy bars but you must have a bag to keep your candy in because if you don’t there won’t be a lot of places to keep all the candy you get but right when they open the door you must say “Trick or Treat” and then after you say that they will give the candy if you don’t say trick or treat they may not give you candy. you can decorate your house if you wan’t with scary things or you could just not decorate your house at all no one will really care. also you celebrate Halloween at pretty much anyone’s house it is not at your house pacifically.

    • dear Cole,

      We all love your comment and what a great one it is!

  18. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,
    I celebrate Halloween. In Wisconsin we celebrate Halloween. We celebrate Halloween because it is fun dressing up and getting candy.
    For Halloween I go Trick or Treating with my family and cave pumpkins and dress up.
    Trick or Treating works like this: 1. You walk up to a house and ring the doorbell. 2. When the person answers the door you say “Trick or Treat” 3. They give you candy you say “Thank you” and move to the next house and usually your neighborhood has a specific time you can Trick or Treat so you try and make it to as many houses as you can in they time.
    For Halloween you can be whatever you want, you pick out a costume and wear the costume when you go trick or treating. Like for example, this year I went as an Eskimo.
    Yes, I decorate my house for Halloween, it is fun to help decorate the yard. Some things people put in their yard is fake spider web, carved pumpkins, blow up thing; such as a ghost, pumpkin and so many more.
    This is what Halloween is like in Wisconsin.

    • Dear Taylor,

      Thank you for commenting on our blog!

      I am Sophie and I live in Geelong, Australia.

      Why do you like to go trick or treating for halloween? How long does it take to carve a pumpkin?

      Trick or treating sounds the same as what we do in Australia but we don’t have a special time to do it.

      What was your favourite costume you have dressed up as over the years? Two years ago I went trick or treating and I dressed up as a witch.

      Does everyone decorate their house in Wisconsin? We don’t here but some people do like two teachers at our school.

      From your blogging buddie,
      Sophie

  19. Hi 4KM and 4KJ,

    I celebrate Halloween because it is nice to go outside
    and get candy.

    My family celebrates Halloween by decorating our house and putting on costumes and going Trick-or-Treat with my friends.

    Trick-or-Treating works by putting on a costume and going around your neighborhood to people’s houses and when they open the door you yell TRICK OR TREAT and they give you candy. You don’t have to wear a costume but it is better if you do because the better you costume the more candy you get!

    For the past 3 years I’ve worn a jacket that turns in to a skeleton of a pirate.

    I hope you liked my answers,
    Kaustav

  20. Hello I live in Wisconsin America and yes we do celebrate Halloween. I celebrate Halloween because its fun. You get to dress up and be what ever you want. For Halloween I go trick or treating.Trick or treating is walking around your neighborhood or any neighborhood and you dress up in a costume and bring a bag. You walk up to someones door(if they have a light on or you can tell that they celebrate it with decorations) and ring their doorbell. When they answer it they have a basket of candy and they give you about two pieces. For Halloween you can dress up like your favorite movie star, a job you could wish you have when you grow up or just an pumpkin. Almost every store in American sells Halloween costumes. Lastly I do decorate my house for Halloween. We put a pumpkin out or things that have to do with fall. Its like decorating for Christmas.
    Your Friend,
    Renata 🙂

  21. I do celebrate Halloween with my friends because it’s a great way to spend time with friends and get to know your neighborhood. Also, it’s really fun!
    For Halloween, most people dress up in costume and go trick or treating.For trick or treating we go around a neighborhood and collect candy. Most houses you can ring the doorbell and people will answer it and give you candy but, sometimes they will be a bowl out with candy inside and how many to take. For Halloween everybody dresses up in costume. This year I was a ninja but, there’s lots of cool costumes out there with masks and props to make it even better. Yes, we do decorate our houses for Halloween. Most people carve faces into pumpkins. Some people buy blow-up ghosts or cats to put in their front yard.
    I hope you can have fun with Halloween!

    • Dear Emily,

      Hi I’m Jess from 4KJ in Leopold.
      I really enjoyed reading your comment and I was wondering where you are from?

      I think Halloween is also a great way to spend time with family and friends and also just for the fun of it!

      I don’t really go trick or treating but my family and I still give out lollies.
      Last night, I got dressed up as a greek godess to greet all the people that come to the door, but that was pretty much all I did.

      We got only about three groups of trick or treaters at the door last night.

      Wow, pretty much everyody dresses up for Halloween, that is really really cool.
      Australia doesn’t celebrate Halloween that much but there is still a lot of trick or treaters.

      Now here are some questions,

      Does evrybody in your neighbour hood celebrate Halloween?

      Does everybody give lollies to all the trick or treaters?

      What do you love the most about Halloween?

      Bye for now,
      Jess (4KJ)

  22. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,
    Yes, I do celebrate Halloween where I live, because it is very fun going trick or treating and getting candy from other peoples houses. What I like to do for Halloween is go trick or treating for an hour or two then, I go home eat some of the candy I got, and answer the door and give candy to other people too. Trick or treating works by going to a house, you say trick or treat, and they will probably give you candy! But you have to make sure after you get the candy, you say thank you. I wear a lot of costumes, last year I was a pretty cool clown, and this year, I am a suit called invisible man and it is a suit that goes on your entire body that it only one color, and I was a green one. My friend was a yellow one. Yes, you do decorate your house for Halloween, you don’t have to but I do. I like putting fake spider webs all over my front porch. It’s real fun. Thanks for the email! I am glad to help you with your questions!

  23. Yes we do celebrate Halloween in Wisconsin.We do this so that we can have fun with our friends.What you do for Halloween is that you go door to door and say trick or treat.how trick or treating works is that every time that you go to a house you say trick or treat and then they give you a couple pieces. For Halloween you where any kind of costume that you would like. Yes you do decorate your house for Halloween. You make it scary and a little fun.

  24. Yes we do. It is a part of are Holiday season.You go to a Halloween store to get your costume so you can get candy. Once you get your costume you wait for your day of the week and then you go door to door saying trick or treat. Then you get candy yum.You were a costume that is scary,or funny.You can decorate you house most people do but you don`t have to you also can carve pumpkins.

    • Dear Sam,

      Thank you for the comment on the 4KM and the 4KJ blog. This year I did go trick or treating. I went trick or treating on the west side of Leopold.

      We got a lot of lollies and they are really good and I got a lot of chocolate to. I dressed up as a ghost one year and this year I was a skeleton with a fake nail through my head.

      I had heaps of fun and might be doing it next year, I already about a quarter through it.

      Happy blogging,
      Your friend,
      Thomas

  25. Dear, 4km and 4kj:
    For Halloween I usually dress up in something that I like and I usually don’t wear anything scary because typically they usually scare me too. This year I was an 80’s girl and my hair was curled and it was really really big and I had some neon clothes on.People usually can be giant like I pods or mummy’s and things to bugs.
    Yes we do celebrate Halloween here including me but some people don’t because of their religion.Like some Christians don’t and there is nothing wrong with it but they just don’t celebrate it.
    Something that I do for Halloween is have parties before I go trick or treating.Some people might go to haunted houses.
    What you do for trick or treating is you dress up in your costume and then you go to door to door and usually say “trick or treat”.
    I usually do decorate my house but I don’t decorate it scary I just put out pumpkins and hay and my scarecrow. THANKS for the questions they were great! 🙂
    From:Emma

    • Dear Emma,
      why did you decide to dress like an 80’s girl.
      Did you decorate your house for Halloween this year.
      Bye for now,
      from Georgia 🙂

  26. Dear 4km 4kj,
    Yes here in Pewaukee we do celebrate Halloween, and I think we celebrate Halloween because it is fun for young kids to dress-up and run around the neighborhood to get candy for Halloween. like I said earlier for Halloween you dress up in a costume and go get candy the costume you see people ware depends on how cold you are and what your like, so you might see a prissiness no one side of the street and a monster on the other for Halloween lots of people put out scary lawn decorations and carve pumpkin with scary faces on them.Other things you might do for Halloween is go to a haunted house. I think Halloween is rely cool and hope one day you can celebrate it with us!!:)

  27. Dear 4km and 4kj classes,

    BOO!:)!

    Yes I do celebrate Halloween here because it’s a holiday that my family and our neighborhood do every time around this time of year.

    For Halloween my family hands out candy such as:
    Hershey’s chocolate, licorice, suckers, snickers, fun dip, and many more kinds of candy we hand out each year and many of our other neighbors too.

    Trick or treating is when you can dress up as anything you want to be and then you go from house to house and ring the door bell. Then when the door opens you say trick or treat then the person will give you how much candy they want to give you. Sometimes it’s one or maybe even two but some you can take a hand full.

    This year for Halloween I was a crazy packer fan. The Packers are Wisconsin’s pro football team. So I decided to be a fan that dresses up with there jersey and I also put on a packer hat and some long pants with the packer sign on it.

    My family does decorate our house for Halloween but not like there’s a ton of stuff up but there are some decorations up. Like pumpkins, fake spiders, and fake spider webs, blow ups, lights, also a wood Frankenstein, and many more decorations but not all of that we put up this year.

    Well i’m glad I could tell you more about Halloween here and what we do and how my family and me do it.

    Trick or Treat!:)!:)

    From,
    Jenna

  28. This is how you trick or treat:
    1). Walk up to the person’s door.
    2). Ring the doorbell.
    3). When the person opens the door, say “Trick or treat!”
    4). Hold up your pillow case and they will put candy in your pillow case.
    5). Say “Thank you!”
    6). Walk to the next house and repeat these steps.

    I celebrate Halloween where I live because then I can travel from house to house and get candy. we have trick or treating in the local area. I also celebrate Halloween where I live because I don’t have to go anywhere else when i can just celebrate it in my own neighborhood.

    For Halloween I wear certain things like a clown costume or a banana or a hot dog and for little kids like you, maybe a superhero or an animal.There are many different types of costumes: an animal, a food, a superhero, or some scary things too.

    I don’t decorate my house for Halloween because Halloween only lasts for one day and you will just take the decorations down after the day of Halloween and then you’ll just be waiting until next time to put the decorations up again.

    What I do for Halloween is I just go trick or treating around the whole neighborhood and then go home and eat some candy and trade candy with my friends.

  29. I live in Wisconsin and yes we do celebrate Halloween here we celebrate Halloween because you get to have a good time with your friends and get candy from your neighbors. For Halloween i dress up in a costume with my friends and go trick or treat.Trick or Treating is when you go to your neighbors houses and knock on their door and when they answer you say trick or treat and they give you some candy.What i wear for Halloween is i like to wear something scary like a zombie a ghost a vampire.I decorate my house for Halloween by carving pumpkins with a design on the outside we put out fake mummies we have haunted houses and have Halloween parties.

    • Hi,

      what weird emoteicon can you make? (o.0)

      cheers,
      Riley

  30. Dear 4KJ and 4KM,
    Yes I celebrate Halloween where I live. The reason I celebrate is because of all the candy you get.
    For Halloween My family and I all go out “Trick or Treating”. This is where you go to other peoples houses, ring the doorbell and ask for candy.
    When it is Halloween I where a costume. This could be a pirate or a zombie, basically anything scary.
    Finally, yes I decorate my house for Halloween. It mostly is with carved pumpkins and fake spiders and cobwebs.

    Have a good Halloween,
    Robbie

    • Dear Robbie,

      Thank you for the great comment on the 4KM and 4KJ blog!

      I don’t really celebrate Halloween but I did go trick or treating.

      From,

      Georgia 4KM 😆

  31. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,
    Yes I do celebrate Halloween where I live because it`s a tradition where we live and it`s also very fun for everybody.
    For Halloween I head out to trick or treat for all of the candy. Also I usually end up with a whole bag of candy when trick or treating is finished.
    This is how trick or treating works, you start walking across the street, then you ring the doorbell or you can knock on their door, usually they will come to the door and you say “Trick or Treat”, now they will often offer you 1-2 pieces of candy, finally you put those pieces of candy in your bag while saying “Thank You or Happy Halloween” and head to the next house.
    My costumes for Halloween are usually sports players such as football players, basketball players, or baseball players.
    Not every year do I decorate my house but when I do it`s just to make my family and I look like were decorative with some Halloween spirit.

    • Dear Drew,

      This Halloween I only got two lollies (candy) but it was worth it. I dressed up in my taekwondo uniform.

      What did you dresss in this Halloween?
      Do you ever go as a specific sport player?

      Well that’s all,
      Goodbye from,
      Brandon (4KM)

  32. Yes I celebrate Halloween and this is how: I dress up and go around saying trick or treat to people who have Halloween lights on or a porch light on.My family puts up spider webs,cats,bats and spiders.I go to my friends house and we go trick or treating with all my friends.

    From Your Friend,

      Thank you for the comment on our blog! I am Georgia from the Australian X2 post on Mrs Yollis’ 366 blog.

      For Halloween I dressed up as a witch. I wore my witch skirt (From Calisthenics) and pur blue glitter all over my face. I also put purple lipstick on.

    • Dear Mrs Yollis,

      Thank you for your great comment. We are always pleased to hear from you.

      It looks like your class enjoys Halloween a lot and chooses their costumes wisely.

      I went trick or treating last night and I dressed up as a witch. I got lots of lollies and I also got $2!

      Halloween is fun and I wonder if it will get more poular in Australia over the years?

      Your blogging buddy,

  34. Dear 4kM and 4kJ,

    You asked us if we decorate our houses for Halloween. Well, we just decorate our houses with spooky Halloween decorations. For example, Shayna has a purple skeleton that has glowing eyes.

    Here is another question we will answer.
    When trick-or-treating, you go to a door and when someone opens the door you chant “trick-or-treat” and they give you candy or a little Halloween decoration.

    Do you want to go trick-or-treating on Halloween?

    Your Halloween-loving friends,

    Shayna and Chloe
    Mrs. Yollis’ students

    • Dear Shayna and Chloe,

      My name is Liv and I am in 4KJ this year.

      Thankyou so much for your terrific comment! We always love to hear from our blogging buddies overseas.

      I don’t really celebrate Halloween. This year, I haven’t seen that many houses decorated. That’s pretty cool, a purple skeleton with glowing eyes! What has been the best Halloween decoration you’ve seen so far?

      We normally have a few Trick or Treaters to my house, but this year we only had one. How many did you have?

      I’ve never been Trick Or Treating. I know lots of people that do though! I don’t really wish to. I really don’t, and I have no idea why, I just don’t.

      What’s you’re favourite treat to receive on Halloween?

  35. Dear 4km and 4kj,

    We are in Mrs. Yollis’ class.

    You asked us how trick-or-treating works. People dress up in costumes and ring doorbells. When the door opens, the kids all yell trick-or-treat! and then they give you some candy such as: Kit Kats, Hersheys, Butter Fingers, and Jolly Ranchers.

    You said that some people trick or treat. Do they do it like us?

    You also asked us if we decorate our houses. Most people do, but some do not. Some carve pumpkins, make faces and call the pumpkins jack-o-lanterns. Others hang stickers, skeletons, goblins, witches, ghosts, and vampires.

    Sincerely,
    C♣llin and Se♣n

    • Dear Collin and Sean,

      Thanks for the comment on our blog! :mrgreen:
      Are you going trick or treating?

      It’s only some people that like to decorate their house and hand out lollies but I don’t think Australia celebrates it as much as you do.

      What are you dressing up as?
      Some of the lollies we hand out are:
      Lollypops
      Mars Bars
      Jelly Babies
      Starburst Snakes
      Etc.

      Do you do Halloween every year?
      What are your favourite lollies?
      Do you go with anyone, and who?

      It doesn’t seem like you don’t dress up any different to what Australians do.
      Happy Halloween!
      From Leah

      P.S. BOO!

  36. Hello 4KM & 4KJ
    Here in England, more and more we are influenced by what happens in the US, so we celebrate Hallowe’en much more than we used to. Nowadays, children hollow out pumpkins to make pumpkin lanterns, dress up in spooky costumes and go and knock on the neighbour’s doors. Neighbours will keep sweets and chocolates to hand out.
    30 years ago, there were no pumpkins and kids used to make turnip lanterns, which took at least a week to hollow out and left you with major blisters, as they are one of the toughest vegetables on the planet! I think Turnip lanterns were invented to keep kids quiet for a very long time.
    In our part of the country, 31st October was known as mischief night, and children went out and did naughty things – knocking on doors and running away, swapping people’s gates around, and perhaps I shouldn’t say too many of the things that went on!
    In England on 5th November, we have Bonfire Night, where we light bonfires and set off fireworks, eat bonfire toffee and hot dogs and drink soup. So a lot of children will be going to Bonfire Parties this weekend and I think that is a much bigger celebration for us than Hallowe’en.

    • Dear Mrs Monaghan,
      Thank you for commenting on the class blog.Wow what a great and long commment. It is nice to hear from you againg.

      Well I never new that you guys celerbrate Halloween more that the U.S. I thought they did because it is an American thing but I was wrong. I have learnt a new thing today.

      Halloween is a good time to celerate with Trick or treater’s and family. Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan Could not bealive that a lot of people in 4KM and 4KJ did Halloween and guess what heaps of students in 4KM and 4KJ went Trick or Treating.

      Not a lot of people decorated their house because it is not really an Australian thing. Bo Mac our Indernasian teacher in Australia at Leopold Primary School decorated her house and gave people lots of lollies. Ghidren are loud and can never stop talking sometimes

      I went Trick or Treating with my two sister Ashleigh and Charlotte and my dad Justin. We got a lot of lollies. We drove and stoped at each House because we went all over Leopold. There was this house we wnt to and a girl came out and when she finish handing the lollies out she said to go to this girl in the corner named Angie and so we did and she told us that it was her birthday so she would give us lots of lollies.

      That would of been fun but the people at the house would get very angry. My dad when he was little would go around and blowing up mail boxes and he would get in trouble. And my mumwould climb up on the roof and jump down and that would of been scary.

      Bonfire night would be lots of fun we should do that here in Australia but we don’t. Bonfires are relazing what we do when my family goes camping we make a bonfire and cook Mashmallows.

      From Maddy :mrgreen:

  37. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    Happy Halloween!

    Like my friend Mr. Avery, my town also just got hit by the mighty hurricane. However, our school still doesn’t have power so we won’t have school all week. That’s probably fine with most of the students, but because most of the streets are dark and 95% of the houses don’t have electricity, there won’t be any trick-or-treating tonight. 🙁

    Instead, there are a few Halloween parties at special places around town, and trick-or-treating will be done next weekend when we should all have our power back. 🙂

    I’ll answer your question about how I decorate my house for Halloween. The most important thing (to me) is having a few jack-o-lanterns on the porch or in the windows. They are very fun to carve, especially scooping the slimy insides (the “guts”) out! I have three jack-o-lanterns on my porch. They make a nice, welcoming glow.

    Some people put fake spider webs in their windows or over their doors. Others have “scarecrows” propped up in the yard or sitting in a chair. Some houses even have electrical skeletons that move, or skulls that laugh, when you walk near them. That can get a little spooky!

    From,
    Mr. Salsich

    P.S. I know you are going to have a great time sharing the monster descriptions and drawings with Mr. Avery’s class. We did it with him last year and it was fantastic!

    • Dear Mr. Salsich,
      Thank you for commenting on the class blog. I were scared because Mr Avery was in the storm but now he is fine but now I’m scared about you and your class. It is very nice of you to leave a comment on our class blog even though you are in hurricane Sandy.

      It is really sad that you won’t be back at school untill next week 🙁 I can imagin having no power it will be very scary but you must feel more scared then I was when the power went off when I was asleep I went to mum and dad’s bed and I bumped into the wall. And then I found dad and we lit up some candles and a hour later the power came on. But you don’t have power for a whole week now that would be scary.

      At least you are having a Halloween party with friends, family and neighbours. And you get to go trick or Treating next weekend. :mrgreen:

      It is nice to decorate your house it makes it have a welcoming touch. Ross who lives in New South Wales decorated his house and lots of kids come and visit. I bet lots of people like decorating their house where you live.

      We will have a great time doing the progect with Mr Avery. And we will put a post on the blog so people can look at the monsters.

      From Maddy :mrgreen:

  38. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    Do you celebrate Halloween where you live? Why?
    Halloweeen has been growing in my town over the last ten years. There are many people who don’t like Trick or Treat visits but I have fun and the locals know I have treats ready.

    What do you do for Halloween?
    I prepare treats ready for visitors a day or two before Halloween. They receive a small skull, Frankenstein, cauldron or pumpkin containing sweets. They take a small bag containing a few more sweets as well as little party items and they choose a toy from a toy box. The first sixteen also received a spider made with a Chupa Chup and tinsel stems.

    How does trick or treating work?
    See also decorate house below. Children are in groups and normally have an adult with them unless they are teens. They come to the door but usually don’t need to knock as I see them coming while working on my computer.

    What do you wear for Halloween?
    I don’t wear any costume as I think I look strange enough as it is but last night there were many ghosts, witches and ghouls at the door.

    Do you decorate your house for Halloween?
    Because many people don’t like Trick or Treat visits, I like to do a little decorating so children know it’s okay to visit this house. There was a 1.5 metre tall skeleton in the main front window and a sign on the balcony saying “Happy Halloween”. At the door there were six fake spiders hanging above visitors.

    Last night I had 48 visitors ranging in age from three to fifteen receive their treats. Ten years ago there were only around ten. ☺

    • Dear Ross,

      I think that if everybody in NSW knew where you live you would run out of lollies in 10 seconds.:) on Halloween I didn’t do as much with my house but we put up a sign that had a skull with top hat that my dad drew (in 1 minute). You got heaps of people at your place but I think I won on 53 people.

      Well that’s all.

      From,
      Brandon (4KM)

      • Dear Brandon,

        Even by sending three treats to my mum’s bingo table I still only had 51 treats so you win. Leftovers are now donated to an after school group I sometimes help. Lollies won’t keep till next year. 🙂
        @RossMannell

    • Dear Ross,

      What a great comment! Thank you for commenting on the blog.

      Halloween is slowly getting more popular were we live aswell.

      It sounds like you are very generous to the trick or treaters that knock on your door. I would want to get to your house early to be in the first 16!

      Kids also go in groups with their friends and an adult here aswell. I find it funny that they don’t need to knock!

      I don’t go trick or treating so I don’t wear a costume but two years ago I went and dressed up as a witch.

      Not many people decorate their houses over here but some people do like two teachers at our school.

      It sounds like you got a lot of trick or treaters knock on your door last night. I got none!

      From your blogging buddie,
      Sophie

      • Dear Sophie,

        When I was a teacher, I liked to celebrate different national customs when I could. They’re a great way to learn about other people.

        Now I no longer have a class of my own, I am still able to have fun at Halloween time by preparing for visitors. The children may get the lollies and treats but I get the smiles so I think I do better. 🙂

        @RossMannell

    • Dear Mr Mannell,

      Wow! That is an amazing comment on our blog and thankyou for the comment.
      My name is Emily and I am in 4KM and 4KJ.

      I did go trick or treating for Halloween. It was very fun and I went with my friends Emma, Samantha and my dad came along.

      There were alot of people that turned all the lights off and didn’t answer the door.

      One thing that I enjoyed was not getting allo the loolies it was seeing all the different costumes. It was exiting I saw alot of people dressed up as scream and ghosts. There was even a person dressed up in a Dorothy the Dinosaur costume. I dressed up as a Zombie.

      My mum and sister said that only three or four people came to our house and you had fourty-eight visitors. We gave aout a packet of smarties and a fizzer. You gave out alot of different things. That is very genorous of you.

      We did not decorate our house in decorations.But maybe next year we could.

      From Emily

      • Dear Emily,

        Not everyone agrees with Halloween. They have the right not to support it and we must respect them. Turning off lights and not answering the door is one way of showing they don’t want to be involved. I only have a problem with people being nasty to visiting children. I make sure I have a sign up to say it’s okay to visit here.

        Visitors to my house were dressed in all sorts of outfits but witches and zombies were very popular. The youngest, a three year old, came as a witch but I don’t think she really understood what was happening. She did understand the treats. 🙂

        Without a class, one of my outlets for fun with children is Halloween so I start preparing a year in advance. By adding a little every now and then it can be surprising how much is there by the next year. 🙂

        I will be visiting my local school next week. I am in the school’s Parents & Citizens Group (I’m a citizen and not a parent) and will be there to help meet parents of new Kindergarten children. It’s been a long time since I had a Kindergarten class of my own back in the 1970s. I mostly had Years 3 to 5. ☺

        @RossMannell

  39. Dear Ross,

    Thank you for your excellent comment, it was great!

    I don’t really celebrate halloween because its a American tradition. But it sounds just as fun when
    people go trick or treating! I bet it feels like lolly heaven!

    From your blogging buddy Lachlan 🙂 😉 :mrgreen:
    PS: I like lollys a LOT!

    • Dear Lachlan,

      Funny thing is, Halloween was not really an American tradition. It’s a Celtic tradition. It was a Celtic harvest celebration in Ireland and Scotland. When people from Celtic heritage emigrated to America, they brought Halloween with them.

      I don’t really celebrate Halloween even though part of my heritage is Celtic. I become involved because I want to bring fun to children who do celebrate it even if they don’t understand what is behind it.

      Here is a link to a site giving information on the history of Halloween…
      http://www.halloweenhistory.org/

      @RossMannell

  40. What a nice posting idea and so many answers! In England halloween is the third biggest celebration, in terms of money spent on it, behind Easter and Christmas. It is largely driven by the way it has been promoted by shops and commercial interests. Children often dress up and there are lots of sweets with a halloween theme, for example ghouls eyes, which are like chocolate creme eggs with green gunge in them.
    This is very much a copy cat celebration and very few people are aware of any of the story that might be behind it. The tricks and treets tend to be sweets for treets and the tricks don’t really happen.
    For us of course it is now dark in the evening and it’s normally raining!
    On Novemebr 5th we have Guy Fawkes night and whilst that does get affected by the weather, it is perhaps the only national celebration that we have that I believe is purely English. Perhaps you could Google it for details.

    I’m sure children like halloween, I hope you had nice weather for yours.

      Thank you for the lovely comment on our post. Children also dress up in Leopold and some are:
      ~Witches
      ~ Zombies
      ~ Scream
      ~ Clowns
      If you do not know what scream is it is a character from a movie.

      Here are some of the lollies (candy) we have:
      # eyeballs
      # popping candy
      # lollipops
      Some people also give out muesli bars.

      We had really good weather for our trick for treating,
      Emily

  41. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    We give out candy to other people. I also love going trick or treating with my friends. I love how you have millions of selections when having a costume. This year I was a vampire. My friends thought I was scary because of my makeup.

    Talk to you soon,
    Mary

    • Dear Mary,

      Thanks for the comment on the 4KM and 4KJ blog. This year I dressed up as a skeleton with a fake nail through my head.

      It was my second ever time trick or treating. I got a lot of lollies I’ve still got a lot of lollies. It was really fun trick or treating.

      From your friend,

    • Dear Mary,

      Thanks for the comment on the 4KM and The 4KJ blog.I went trick or treating with two of my friends.

      Thanks for the comment,

  42. Hey it’s me, Audrey. I love Halloween! I do decorate every year, but we have two houses and need to balance it out with a tight budget, so I don’t have a lot of decorations to put up. Although I do got trick-or-treating with by friends every year. I never were the same costume because I’m a creative person, I need variety! I celebrate because it’s just plain fun, and you get to spend time with your best friends. You go to house to house knocking on doors or ringing the doorbell, and when they come out, say: trick-or-treat! It’s super fun. You should try it in Australia.

  43. Hi
    Its Molly, I love halloween its so much fun to walk around the neighborhood and get free candy. What I do for halloween is we go on the back of my uncle’s trailor and put hay barrels and lights. Its really fun to do with family and friends. What I wear for halloween is stuff that is in the atic from years before that I have never worn before. Thats what I do for Halloween.

    • Dear Molly,

      Thank you for the comment on the 4KM and the 4KJ blog. It was fun trick or treating around where we live.

      I only go up and down the street for halloween but I got a lot of lollies. I just used a plastic bag to put my lollies in.

      I dressed up a skeloton with a nail through my head.

      Thanks for the comment,

  44. Trick-or-treating is probably different in the USA than in Austrlia. Do you
    (1) go to a person’s door
    (2) ring the doorbell or knock
    (3) when they answer say “Trick or Treat”
    (4) when they give you candy say “thank you”
    (5) go to they next house
    That is how we do it here in the USA

    • Dear Angelina and chloe,

      Thanks for the comment on the 4KM and the 4KJ blog.

      That is what we do in Australia to. This is the second time I have done halloween.

      It was so fun and I got a lot of lollies to bring home.

      From your friend,
      Thomas

  45. @Audrey,

  46. Hi my name is Cogan and yes I celebrate Halloween in the U.S.A. For Halloween I stay in my neighborhood and I go door to door knocking on doors and when the people open their doors I say Trick or Treat they give me candy (or money) and I go to the next house.
    Well really for Halloween you are supposed to dress up like a Saint because it is the holy eve (hallow-holy ween-eve)but everybody dresses up like their favorite singer or character from a book, a movie or the past. For Halloween I go to a friend’s house and walk around their neighborhood and I have a great time we will dance and sing and just have fun while walking. My family has a big inflatable pumpkin with a witch hat and a spider and we have scarecrows and little witches. Well thats what I do for Halloween see you later.

  47. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    I wasn’t at school today because I was experiencing really bad headaches and wasw so dizzy I had trouble seing.

    Anyway, I’m feeling a little better now, so I decided to do some blogging.
    105 comments! WOW, the post hasn’t been on for a very long time and we already have that many comments! This is exiting.

    Do you celebrate Halloween where you live? Why?

    My family doesn’t celebrate Halloween, they think it’s an American thing. But I did this year, I went trick or treating with some friends.

    How does trick or treating work?
    When you trick or treat, you go around to people’s houses and scream “Trick or Treat!” The they give you lollies, if they give you something like an apple, you spray them with water. 😆

    What did you wear for Halloween?
    For Halloween, I wore a little cape, an ugly nose, and make up all over my face. I was a witch!

    Your blgging buddy,
    Bronte 🙂 :mrgreen: 😯
