...and asking for sweets. What is this weird arse American tradition and why has it infiltrated the UK. You could be sending your kids to a sex offenders house, or the sweets could be poisoned.

turn off all lights in rooms that have windows that look out onto the streets, lock the door, and put a giant note that said "sod off" on your door. It's the best you can come up with really.

I don't hate fun I'm going to the pub later but asking strangers for sweets in their homes is a concept alien to my British psyche

I wonder if the tradition of egging houses that have no candy is also carried on.

When I were a young 'un, only knee high to a badger, when we walked 10 miles uphillin the snow to school, then 10 more miles uphill to the coal mine, and then another 40 miles uphill to get home, half an hour before we had to leave for school again....

my house has never been egged or anything, but my neighbor had their house egged and spraypainted and the big tree in front TP'd



Edit
Well, the spray paint was a bit excessive if you ask me.

I suppose its only fair because we started it in UK. It was originally a Celtic festival that got hijacked by the catholic church, exported to America with the first settlers, commercialised over there, now exported home. What goes around comes around. Still bloody annoying though.

nah but I don't actually have anything so it's just be kind of awkward if I didn't answer it..

i'd be okay with that

i am not okay with the bastardized consumerist version

In Scotland, we had a thing called 'guising'. It's like trick or treat, except we were expected to do some kind of party trick in exchange for the treat.

We had one bobby knocker so far. It's too late for the little kids and I don't give the teenagers fuck all. I have a lot of sweets to eat.

Good God are you guys grumpy. As a Brit, I adore Halloween. It's just a bit of fun! Don't like it? Shit for you. You don't like it, but quit spoiling it for the plenty of people who aren't totally grouchy. Halloweens gone on a long, long time. Longer than America has been begging for sweets... And as for it being an "alien" concept, it's a concept we've lived with our whole lives. It doesn't make anyone privileged, its one night a year to dress up all gothic and have some fun, so grow up and quit the "I hate Halloween" act. It's not edgy. Its just grumpy.
