I wish Halloween could be banished.  I really do not like it.

To get away from the door ringing, I am going shopping late afternoon and then round to a friend's for dinner afterwards.

My curtains show some light at the edges, so it isn't as if I can draw them and pretend I'm out.

I don't mind the little children but it is the teenagers coming round late that disturbs me.   It takes me ages to get out of my recliner, and they ring and ring the bell until I get to the door.

There are five young children living along my terrace, so I have put a 50p in an envelope for each child (with Trick and Treat from Joanne written on the front) and my carer will put them through the letter boxes tomorrow.

There are two more evelopes for the two boys down the road too. So Halloween isn't cheap.  £3.50 might not be much for some but it is to me. 

Years ago I really used to get into the fun of it and buy a mask and witches' hat and dress up in a black dress, which used to give the youngsters a right shock when I opened the door!!  One year, a Dad laughed so much at his children's reaction, he nearly fell down the slope on the other side of the path!!

I'm not well enough to do it now.  But there it is.

Hi Yvette,

If you look up your local police on line they will have a poster that you can print off and put in you window or on the door.  I also hate Halloween.

I've just come back from a Halloween family party at my cousin's, and both she and other cousin forbid their kids from 'tricking and treating'.  Cousin #2 describes it as a form of begging, which it is really when you think about it, going round asking adults for sweets - and also pointed it out to the kids that it isn't very nice to play tricks on people.  It must be very annoying for you, Yvette, being pestered this way smiley115  The poster sounds like a good idea!

It's at times like this I'm glad that a) I live on the second floor and b) I've not pressed my HA to mend my non-working doorbell smiley106

Last year my PA left me outside Sainsbury's in my wheelchair and I inadvertently fell asleep. Can you imagine the surprise I had when she woke me up an hour later and I'd amassed a collection of £201.76! Apparently, they mistook me for a 'Guy'! 

Now where's my tall hat and van Dyke beard?

I can understand where you are coming from on this one as I do not like answering the door to Trick or Treaters. Having said that I quite like the Halloween celebrations although did not have a party this year.  If you want someone to blame, blame it on the Americans as they created it.

 

[quote] Cousin #2 describes it as a form of begging, which it is really when you think about it, going round asking adults for sweets - and also pointed it out to the kids that it isn't very nice to play tricks on people. [/quote]

 

I agree with this one. Although when your young that is what you think.

A nice litter earner there Uurbanblues

 

[quote] I am glad our lounge is at the back of the house so no-one knows whether we are in or not [/quote] Is your house back-to-front then? If so, it is quite unusual.

Yes, our house is 'back to front', as they all are on this street. The kitchen is at the front and the lounge at the back. Having lived here for 23 years, I can't imagine going back to living in a house where the lounge can be seen from the front door or, even worse, the street!

RE:Halloween. nope - fireworks and people
(Date Posted:10/11/2011 3:18 PM)

I cannot locate the fireworks thread, so I am having a moan on here instead.
Every night someone different has a firework party around here.  It is now over 2 weeks.  My poor doggie is just so upset, she really hates it.  I have no idea where she is at the moment - cowering somewhere around the house I expect.  Usually she just rushes into whichever room I am in loo, kitchen wherever, and snuggles up and tries to hide.  

Why are the people around here so insensitive.

Auntie, next year come to my place, bring the caravan and have a peaceful time instead.

(Offer extended  to all who find the combination of Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night an ordeal).

Could be fun (could be bedlam if lots of people take me up on the offer !)
