We had trick or treat in our neighborhood. Our neighborhood is about 3/4 Chinese, 1/4 expat I would guess. I'd say 10% of the neighborhood homes participated by handing out candy, not sure how many kids participated.
Halloween is definitely a Western tradition and holiday. Not much happened at school, the kids were not invited to wear their costumes and there was no Halloween party. I'm not sure how many European countries celebrate Halloween, but England and Australia seem to celebrate.
Trick or treat itself was pretty normal, the funny part was the candy. Check out the picture. What looks different??

Fun was had by all, minus the fact that we had to wear our air masks to keep everyone safe. Quite the look with Halloween costume and air mask.
