It's the time of the year when kids in their favorite costumes especially in America will be saying Treat or Trick asking for candies or else celebrating Halloween. Back home, this westernized version has taken over the traditional merrymaking of children on the eve of All Saints' Day going from house to house asking for sweets especially for rice cakes or cash singing "We are hungry souls, please give us something to eat and make it fast please before the door of heaven closes on us."

Suman anyone?
