Anyone doing anything for Halloween tomorrow?

I'm going to a Halloween craft morning tomorrow, going dressed as Darth Vader (yeah I know, not very Halloweeny but I lost the belt to my Batman suit)

Probably spend half the night answering the door to children seeking a treat. Correction, my missus will spend half the night doing that !  Smiley

Sadly as we don't have a bell people just use the knocker and loudly. Still, the TV will be turned up loud Cheesy

Alternatively,  keep a light on behind one of these. No Tick or Treat images

Re: Anyone doing anything for Halloween tomorrow?

Why not open the door saying 'trick or treat'. As they look taken aback ask for some sweets or money that they've taken from others or you'll throw the eggs in your hands at them Cheesy
Wonder what sort of responses you'd get Undecided

Re: Anyone doing anything for Halloween tomorrow?

Bought the usual annual tub of wrapped sweets for when they come knocking....
So far.... had a total of Three visitors.
They had gone to a lot of trouble though, with their costumes, or at least their Mums had.
My PIR security lights and CCTV warns me of their approach up the drive, but there does seem to be fewer and fewer each year.

Re: Anyone doing anything for Halloween tomorrow?

Loads of them round here again this year. As usual half the street remained unlit including us lol
Happily we didn't get one knock though we did hear a lot of them walking past lol

Re: Anyone doing anything for Halloween tomorrow?

Trick / treating has got more organised in our village in recent years, adults accompanying kids, no approaching houses which clearly don't want to be involved, etc. As a result have not needed to use the boiling oil. Might even try leaving a light on next year...

When I was a kid me and my mates went T&T and we knocked on our mates house. They weren't giving us any treats and before we got to even think about a trick they set on us with super soakers lol.
