I heard on the radio this morning of someone who had given a child some sweets,only to have the mother of the child come back 5 mins later to complain that they contained nuts and he shouldn't be given them out.

I always thought the idea was for parents to go with the kids and only go to houses of people they knew. Times certainly have changed. Now, kids go by themselves and hit every house they can.

Happy Halloween, all. smile

I agree with Cantos. Certainly in modern times it's an Americam thing, we never heard of it in my day. Power and influence of TV and all that. In fact in a masterly exhibition of Grumpy Old Man-ism, though I say so myself, a few years ago I put a sign in the front door saying "No trick or treats" superimposed on a Union Flag. I'm mopre mellow now though.

Remarkably though we only got bothered once last night. Invisible-Lass is much nicer than me and insists on giving the little devils sweets.

I suppose because I remember how much fun it was when I was a kid, I don't mind kids knocking on the door.

Just egg the annoying little feckers, before they get the chance too.
Failing that....release the hounds. (In cantos' case, the wife :))

When me and 'Er Indoors were making our way up to the local watering hole yesterday evening, we actually witnessed a group of young teenage girls trick-or-treating in the full St Trinians garb. Stockings and suspenders, the lot.

I ask you. I disaster just waiting to happen.
