Trick or treat
Halloween seems to become more popular here but the "trick or treat" part of the custom is still more of an exception; children dress up and go from house to house for treats.
There is a different but comparable custom in some towns in Belgium. In January, either on New Year's eve or on Epiphany, kids stop at the doors and sing songs. They wish the generous givers of oranges, cookies, chocolates... a happy new year.
Wishing you a Happy Halloween!
