In St. Louis, when children go Trick or Treating, they are expected to do a trick to earn a treat. Their trick can be a joke or riddle, or even a song.
Singing songs can make a car ride or party more fun, especially if the songs are silly. Here’s a Pumpkin Carol that I wrote for Halloween. There are more songs online at http://www.alphabet-soup.net/hall/hallcarol.html and http://www.paganlibrary.com/music_poetry/peanuts_pumpkin_carols.php.
Trick or Treat
To the tune of Silver Bells
Little tricksters, and their mothers, as they go door to door,
In the air, there’s a feeling that’s spooky.
Soapy windows, waxy car doors, this is Casper’s big scene,
And on every door step you will hear,
Trick or treat, smell my feet, it’s Halloween in the city,
Trick or treat, good to eat, it’s Halloween once again.
