    Here in the Netherlands that happens at the eleventh of the eleventh (Saint Martin's day). Kids go door to door, sing a song and show their handmade lantern. And the people give them candy, small presents or (when the neighbours are evil) a piece of fruit.

    We have St Martins singing ( with the candy) too, but it’s not connected to walking with lanterns. Those are two different events. And the candy thing sadly is more and more replaced with Halloween.

    Silver1: there is a whole parade and the police guard the front and the reer, so it’s not really dangerous. The parents are there as well.

    Sorry Pricey...Gotta say...the UK's not much better:

    "To Westminster, then – a sort of middle-management Westeros, where mostly terrible actors obsess over court politics, and the electorate are just CGI casualties in the Battle of the Bastards. When you play the game of thrones, you couldn’t give one eighth of a toss what’s going to happen to some boring little car-plant worker on Teesside when there’s no deal". https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...-plant-workers
