Halloween was called guising in Scotland and masked up you had to sing, dance or tell a joke to get fruit, nuts, money or sweets.

There was no such thing as trick or treat.

Mainly because if any trick should be committed it would have resulted in the perpetrator being caught and belted.

Those days were hard.

Just like the turnips.
