I was wondering if other places still do it, though. I know I've seen the boxes advertised in recent years, so I'm assuming it's still done somewhere. Can anyone shed some light on whether this still the Hallowe'en custom in your part of the world?
I'd also like to know when the apostrophe was dropped from Hallowe'en. It was drilled into us as children, I refuse to change my spelling just because the spellcheck doesn't approve.
