Halloween is over for another year.

Post by tracyp on Fri Oct 31, 2014 1:09 pm

First topic message reminder :

What a lovely night! All manner of little fairies, goblins, gouls, superman,  monsters, a bride bleeding profusely,  some wierd mutations of mortica adams, some freak with blue hair? Fangs, blood, ripped clothes. I even had a princess of about 3yrs old. Little people just don't get the theory of halloween! wink

It was so lovely this yr. All little kids & not teens looking for free lollies unless they were taking the young ones around. Lots of mums waving as they loitered in my drive... rolling on floor  & 1 dad dressed to the scary 9's with his 3yr old asking for a lolly. hug

3 little girls had forgotten to bring their lolly bags so I gave them paper bags as they were so little they couldn't even hold two mini choc bars in their hand. They were very happy, now they could fill the bag up! laughing

The dogs went right off when about 10 assort gouls & a tiny spiderman turned up. Spiderman was about 2-3yrs & was screaming. I ran to the door. I didn't want him to be scared! Only to realize he was screaming in sheer delight yelling... "puppies" as he looked in the security door! rolling on floor

What a lovely evening everyone has had.

I hope your halloween is as much fun.

I once overheard a child say to another that if there was a Halloween pumpkin on display at a house, then that meant that the occupants were receptive to being trick-or-treated.

I saw this in action this year whilst I was walking Kuchar along the streets - a near neighbour had a pumpkin in her window all lit up with the grisly smile and a group of children knocked on her door just as I passed. She opened her door with delight and I heard her say "now, let's see what we have here for you"

I think this is good idea (open to abuse of course, but at least the pumpkin-less aren't plagued).

Weird it's the opposite here! shocked Pumpkin means no sweets, apparently! Unless I've gotten it mixed up.

With all due respect Eleanor, I suspect you have mixed up! Surely displaying a lit-up pumpkin advertises that you are buying into the Halloween experience?

I loved hallowe'en when I was young. We went out in galoshins where we had to do something for a treat, sing, dance, poetry, jokes etc and only to houses we knew. I think it's become too americanised now.

Ah that might be mummy-talk! Like when we tell our children when they hear the ice-cream van chimes that it means they have run out of ice-cream laugh

rolling on floor

Reminds me! shocked A couple of months ago, I was walking down the road on a hot day and this ice cream van started trawling along next to me, blaring his music! He'd targeted me, to get me to buy one of his ice creams! shocked After a full minute of the music giving me a cracking headache, I gave him my best scowl and told him where to go.

He's always doing it! Every time I've seen him on route, he follows me! He's not even one of the nice ice cream men! sad

No, you're mistaken, I told you the pumpkin meant the house DID welcome trick or treaters!

Eleanor - and I thought I was naïve! Ice cream sales are not on his mind when he sees you!

To illustrate - many years ago when my sister and I were young and gorgeous like you are now, we were walking down the street when an ice-cream van was driving in the opposite direction, "music" going like mad. The van passed us and then behind us my sister and I heard the most tremendous bang and crunch of metal. Looking behind us, we saw that Mr Whippy had head-butted a stationary car that was waiting patiently at the red traffic lights.

Now what do you think - was Mr Whippy watching where he was driving, or was he looking in his rear view mirrors to see if my sister and I, despite our body language, really wanted to "stop him and buy one" ?

Or ........... ?
