Hallowe'en

Hallowe'en is not something I've usually joined in, my children never went knocking on doors on 31 October - but I have sweets in now in case any little children come (I dismiss the big ones!)

But I've noticed this year that it now seems to have turned into Hallowe'en week - things have been going on all week with parties and events.

When did this happen then?

What are your thoughts on Halowe'en?

I don't like it - why did we import it from USA?
Purely for commercial gain in my opinion.

I think it's wrong to intimidate people into giving you something for fear of what their 'trick' may be! Why should we be expected to give people something just because they have dressed up?

I would have to agree - if they are going to celebrate then I believe it should be like they have Bonfire night now and have organised parties.

Saying that, I did buy my Granddaughter a top that says 'first hallowe'en' on it! But it's for her to wear at her messy play play party day.

Yes it's been going on throughout the weekend hasn't it, and I suppose that it's because Halloween falls on Monday this year that most people have decided to make it into a long weekend celebration.
I'm not a fan but it has become an excuse for whole families to get dressed up and have a party, and in many cases get drunk and make a nuisance of themselves.

I have to admit to buying a couple of scary masks over the years, solely to scare the grandkids, but one of the masks is so gross that I daren't bring it out any more for fear of giving them nightmares.

We only had two knocks at the door - both parents with young children.

Yes, same at ours too, just the two calls, which meant that we had plenty of sweets left over, but with seventeen grand kids we knew they wouldn't last long ....

Fair enough , people taking their kids out for a 'walk' or whatever at hallow'een , and maybe knocking on doors of people you know or are related too etc...... but i really don't agree with kids wandering the streets , knocking on doors expecting something (in most cases money).
Also , i would imagine that sort of thing would be a 'pervert's paradise'.

Some people should take more responsibility over their children

Yes, I don't like it when children are on their own at night wandering the streets.

Bez told me that in her village there was a rule this year where you couldn't go and knock on anyone's door unless they had a pumpkin showing.

That's a good idea re the pumpkin, it should be put into practice in all areas I.M.O.

Anyway, that's Halloween over with, and that's Bonfire night over with, so let me think, what's next ?

Oh yes, it's the BIG one, CHRISTMAS
