Holiday Workshop: Elle & Maggie’s Trick or Tretiquettes

by Mindy Lockard on October 27, 2010

Today is the final round of Holiday Workshops!  We would like to thank our darling friend Housewife Bliss for including us!

It wouldn’t be a workshop in the days leading up to Halloween without a few quick reminders to be sure our little ghosts, goblins and cowgirls are on their gracious best.  And who better to share them with you than our two favorite cowgirls… giddy up!

For the sake of time we picked our three favorite Trick or Tretiquettes. Do you have a favorite? Please share!

I think that the Trick or Treat Tretiquette should be taught in both elementary and middle schools. It’s amazing how few children actually know anything about etiquette or Tretiquette. Your daughters are wonderful teachers. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Lisa! We hope this video can be used as a fun tool to prepare children and parents! Thanks for stopping by.

I will be showing this to my children tomorrow…fabulous and so timely for us as we celebrate our first Halloween this year American style. Thank you darling.

My favorite tip is let the parents check the candy for safety reasons. Then supply them with one piece of candy as a safety checker fee. ( :

Greetings! I am new to your site and enjoying it ever so much. Regarding holiday cards, etc. I have ordered the family photo card. My conundrum is the “family letter”. To do or not to do? Thoughts, guidelines or just say don’t? Thank you, Kate

This is the cutest thing ever!! Hope your Halloween was very “mannerly”.

Hey! I’m new to this neat site. Can someone help me locate the printable Thank You Note checklist that Mindy talked about on TV yesterday (an Atlanta show, not sure which one, new to Atlanta area as well!) Thanks!!

Hi, Jennifer,

Love that you saw the Better TV segment! Here’s the link to the Thank-You tracking guide that we featured on the segment!

Good luck and happy thank-you writing.

Best, Mindy
