My missus hates halloween and especially trick or treaters.
Would it be acceptable to dress up as Jimmy Savile to scare the kids off?

  • And by the way when did halloween become trick or treat?

    I remember ducking for apples - i think it was ducking.

    I remember it first being mentioned in the media around 1980. Took off in the late '80s IIRC.
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    I f'ing hate trick or treaters - nasty little brats who are scum for the rest of the year, but on this night think you should give them treats, especially money - some of them in W Yorkshire are about 16 yrs old - they are like vermin - and trick or treat is a nasty american culture thing for which there is only one good answer, an american culture shotgun by the door

    no Trick or Treaters where i live now! - a few lumps in the lawn though

    I'm so sad I'm away and can't do this! Mind you last year in Holland it was only tiny tiny kids that knocked on my door so I would feel a bit guilty ( I already had to explain to them (in english, when they did tn speak any) that i did nt have anything anyway. the chunk of energy bar i gave them got me a very dirty look!

    A bowl of Brussels Sprouts dipped in chocolate ensues they won't be back.

    Mind you, so does beating the living censored out of them but the police can be a bit funny about that.
  • It's not "trick or treat" it's demanding, if not money, gifts with menaces and should be outlawed.

    It's another example of something censored coming over here from good old USofA. :evil:

    Aaaah now I know why DDraver wants to bring that ridiculous instrument back.

    Cleat - you could always encourage the local kids to go around your area wearing Kelvin McKenzie outfits :D

    It works quite well in a village a work colleague lives in, any house taking part puts a pumpkin at the end of the drive or in a window to show they are fair game and the groups of kids are always accompanied by an adult and make an effort with their outfits. Not really an option in inner-city areas though and obviously the problems come when it's teenagers with scarves over their faces in their usual clothes clearly taking the p1ss in looking for freebies.

    The one plus side of halloween was if you go out clubbing as the women seem to make an effort to wear even less than usual in their costumes, I miss those days :twisted:

    It's hateful. I don't want to look at the beastly brats that reside near me the rest of the year,nevermind for one night when they are even more brattish.

    Hate Halloween with a vengance. Couple of years ago we bought a bag of satsumas and sat down with a marker pen to make them look like mini halloween pumpkins. You should have seen the faces of the beggars when we gave them out. The little barstewards from the local estates that trawl up and down our road are now only after money.
    Am thinking of dressing up as Till Lindemann of Rammstein this year just to give the scabby, beggar 'trick or treaters' the 5hit5. Think it will make sure they never return in future.

    It works like this around where I live too.

    We put out pumpkins and try to decorate around the door a bit. People come with little kids and a very grateful that we have made somewhere for them to visit. We also get a few older kids who also take the goodies that Mrs Slog puts out for them with good grace. If they are less than chuffed they don't show it, all are unfailingly polite and good natured.

    You sometimes get the occasional mum who has made the effort with the a costume. :mrgreen:

    The 'tinies' are the great though. I usually answer the door dressed as Death, and last year was met with a little voice at around kneecap height that said "Happy 'Ween".


    The older I get, the better I was.

    well we had loads of 'em, mostily little kids and parents. My 2 are now more into answering the door than going out. They ahd a great time and we did apple bobbing, smarties hidden in flour etc with them. So no problems here, maybe the neighbour makes a difference? next year I plan to put some (fake) grave yard crosses in the front garden with little mounds of earth and a limb sticking out.
  • Luckily someone spray painted "Pedo Skum" on my house so they tend to stay away.
