How would Terry spend halloween?

Chuck me your ideas for a truly Discworld halloween, what would Terry do? What would his characters think of it?

spend it with death helping with the bee's
May God give me
Courage to change thethings in life i need to change
Strength to accept the things I cant
Wisdom most of all to tell me the difference

I don't think so. Don't they do the Witch Trials instead? I seem to remember asking that same question one year when we were doing an envelope exchange around Halloween on another forum.

Isn't that what the witching contests are called? The ones Granny always wins, or am I confused again? :?

No, you are right Catch-up. (Don't know if you are also confused, but you are right).

. . . halloween on Discworld, is probably the one night in the year, when witches do not roam abroad.

That's actually Hogswatch if I remember correctly. :wink:

That's why Nanny stays at home and the family visits her.

I get the feeling that was from a story in Once More With Footnotes. Or maybe not, now that I seem to remember the pig witch winning it. Hat Full of Sky perhaps?
