My sister tells me that telling jokes to earn one's treat for Halloween is a Des Moines thing. People in the DC area don't do it. Really?
Do children/people tell a joke for a treat on Halloween, in the area you currently live in?
Always. Make them work for it (but not very hard).
No, they just say "Trick or treat".
No, they just expect a treat without saying anything.
No. No one here goes trick-or-treating.
I don't know - no one comes to my door.
I don't know - I never answer the doorbell on Halloween.
Other, to be explained in a comment.

What's the best joke you've heard this Halloween (if any)?
