theblackmount - there'll be apple bobbing and other games at our house this weekend, along with home made toffee & cakes etc, so it's not gone altogether
Halloween. Love or loathe?
Wysiwyg that's a great costume a nice tribute to one of the greatest films of the 80's too.
When we were kids you got money and the occasional sweet, now all kids get is sweets. We never had to do any singing or tell jokes the idea was they give you a treat or get a trick.
Pumpkins we're carved last night before I went to work in preparation for tonight and their costumes are ready. I'm off to work so kids can knock as much as they want they'll only get a terrier trying to make them look like Wysiwyg (no not really).
Loathe. I have a 3am start tomorrow but no doubt the doorbell will be ringing up until 11pm like it was last year. Wouldn't be so bad if it was just young kids with their parents, but round my neck of the woods it's basically teenage gangs out to stock up on junk food.

Drac> thanks. All made from scratch, modeled, cast moulds and then slip cast with latex. Took about 3 evenings
has anyone seen that pic that's doing the rounds on Facebook, of the mature lady getting into the spirit of Hallowe'en..?
I'd quite like to post it to give this thread some balance but I fear that I will be spirited away by the mods..
What a bunch of moaners
All the kids we have had at the door have been remarkably polite.
Calcot in Readings not the best of places. Our boy is nearly 3 and he is an ace time
Guisin , turnip lanterns and dookin for Apples. Great memories from my youth in East Lothian.
Although we did used to always go to an auld bloke who lived on his own every year. He used to have a big tub full of water and apples and tons of sweets.
He would probably have has his house torched now a days. He was a big fan of sport as he was always watching us playing football and swimming in the river.
Well, the wife and kids are out trick or treating, leaving me to man the fort and deal with the group of inappropriately dressed zombie schoolgirls that turned up just after they left......

At the moment he'd probably be with DLT and the rest with viewing habits like that....
Here in the US, I grew up on a cattle ranch with the closest neighbor 12 miles away, so trick & treating wasn't something we ever did---so don't have any memories good or bad about it.
At present, in my neighborhood, it's lot's of cute little kids with their parents around dusk, which is nice-----but after dark, it's mostly 13-16 year olds, usually looking for all the candy they can grab and trouble in general.
Mrs busydog had foot surgery, so I will be tasked with controlling the 2 big dogs, answering the door and doling out candy.
Thank you in advance, Mr. Jack Daniels, for helping me through it.
Love it. All nice kids around by me. They make an effort with costumes and such. Best thing it gives me an excuse to buy in loads of sweets which I get to eat got a party saturday night, that'll make the cyclocross interesting Sunday.
