    Calling me a prostitute now? Classy honey, classy. Sorry to disappoint you but it is from having to talk to gentlemen like yourself who have trouble making eye contact with young women and would rather talk to our chests.

    You don't disappoint me O' contrare, and I only have your word (I wouldn't want to swear my life on it) that you are a young woman!

    As for making eye contact I would have to get on my knees to make eye contact with such a person as you with "Napoleons disease"

    You must live in a very bad place also for such an outlook on life, glass half full (in fact empty in your case)

    @RingOfFlame - Making freinds and influencing people again I see. You can keep your holiday, I don't celebrate your independence day either as I don't care. Were you board today or just a little masochistic.

    On topic: I have a gate which helpfully keeps out the destructive demanding youths who follow in the footsteps of their American TV upbringing.

    I did think that rigging up one of those electronic sprinkler controllers with a switch and a well aimed hose would make quite a nice answer to the trick or treat debate especially if the little vandles try to get through the gate.

    Goodness me... it has been a busy night! Halloween and nasty things that appear around midnight. I'm rather sorry I didn't stay up for the witching hour now!

    @bossman you really should know better than to mock the afflicted...




    .... but carry on anyway! As you would say "hehe"

    I had sweets, and a pumpkin and I live in a house with a front door that peopel can get to. I even had the light on, and not one kid came to my house! Last year we got 1 and this year I got none, I'm kinda disapointed.

    Though I think kids upto about 10 is what it should be.

    I had to laugh when opening the door to a couple of girls. Both dressed up, in early teens....one on her mobile phone chatting away just holding out an Asda carrier bag. So I just held out a bucket of sweets and her friend had to get some for her saying "I'll get hers too, she's on the phone" (thanks for the clarification!)

    I forgot to buy sweets for the kiddies so unfortunately i had to ignore the door. I do love halloween, good excuse to get dressed up and have a gig with my band. Also as kids we went trick or treating and i see no reason to spoil that for other kids, it's only a couple of quids worth of sweets so get a scary mask on and join in otherwise you'll be cheating kids of a childhood and the next thing you know, you'll be complaining about the anti-social kids that live in your area (wonder why they're so "anti-social"?!)

    We took the girls out for the first time with some friends around one of the local estates and only went to houses that they knew or ones with pumpkins and that had made an effort allthough it was a bit disturbing with one group of local young people 14, 15+ just roaming the estate having made no effort just going for the sweets.

    It was slightly marred by the fact that when we got home someone had stolen one of our pumpkins just the one mind you and it happened to be the youngests dora the explorer pumpkin that the missus had carved for her.

    Due to the fact that we were out we had only had a few come round before that and when we got home that was the end of it pumpkins away batteries out of the doorbell.

    Where I live unless you have a pumpkin in your window people don't bother you (at least in the main this is what happens). It allows those who want to be involved to do so, and those that don't want bothering can be left in peace.

    Seems to work pretty well.

    Having said that, last night we only had visits from kids whose parents we know (so only about 2/3 knocks at the door) although we do live at the end of the Close and our house is mainly obscured and we'd been out trick or treating ourselves :-)

    I do agree that there should be an age cut off for it (I'd probably say when they go to secondary school), as it can be quite intimidating to have a group of teenagers turn up on your doorstep.

    Is it really begging though? Or is it more like organised blackmail (If you don't give us something nice we'll do something nasty to you)?

    Much as I don't like Trick or Treat, it is better than Mischief Night (November 4th) that I grew up with in Yorkshire.

    Mischief Night was supposed to be a night of pranks... I remember getting up one morning to find that some wag had taped every gate along our road shut with electrical tape. I believe its origins (and date) are something to with supporters of that notorious Yorkshireman burned the following day, Guy Fawkes.

    By the time I left home, the pranks were becoming rather more malicious and that's where Trick or Treat is probably a safer option.

    Hmmm, all this gives me an idea for next year - I have a couple of airsoft 'landmines' that can be filled with talc for a little shock...

    I preferred 'Hop-tu-Naa' as a kid, singing songs and visiting the elderly villagers to say hi basically. We didn't do it for the sweets etc... We used turnips though, not pumpkins!

    It was traditional to carve a turnip on All Hallow's Eve (goodness, more capitals, what am I like!). After all, the tradition started in this country (sorry, ROF) and we didn't have pumpkins then.
    @bossman, my sweet, leave our little USA troll alone - she doesn't understand the concept of friendship and TBH if her reaction to a man she has never met is so bad, something awful must have happened to her.
