While the other boys and girls knocked on doors and asked for treats this Halloween, my neighbours' children stayed at home because their parents did not believe it was appropriate for them to participate in a pagan festival that celebrated death and the occult.

Good try, Angel. But there are a few errors in your response.

"Treat" is countable, so it needs an article (""a")
"Neighbour" is possessive, so you need an apostrophe: neighbour's
Make a decision about the gender of the child: avoid saying his/her and him/her.
