We've had our first (and possibly only) callers, and it's nowhere near dark yet! Mrs Lisati told them "where to go" :wink: - maybe its just as well most of the local youngsters don't really go for the "trick" part.

Halloween FTW! It's been my favorite holiday since I was a little kid. I'm 61, now.

Thanks. :-)
I know what Halloween is, my post was just a subtle little reminder that Halloween is not celebrated much outside the Anglo-Saxon cultures. Maybe I was too subtle ;-)

Halloween! Yay! Now I get to quietly eat the candy I bought with the intent of feeding to small children!

Indeed.

Though, to keep with the spirit I changed my avatar to the Halloween version.

That's starting to change (at least in some places). I see more and more Halloween stuff in my country each year despite we have no Halloween tradition. It's just too tempting for stores not too sell extra stuff in an otherwise quiet period.

Let's hope all the traditions don't come over with it. In the US at least we egg people's cars and houses. We also toilet paper them and set hay fields on fire. For some reason, halloween brings out the worst in some people.

Some Halloween thoughts:

Halloween is the by far the safest day to kill a person and leave them in a chair on your porch.

The best part about Halloween is that people think the screams coming from our house are "part of the fun."

Fun fact about Halloween: There is almost none reported case of children being poisoned by candies by strangers on Halloween, but there are cases of parents poisoning their own child. So disregard everything your parents said, take some candy from that suspiciously looking neighbour you never talked to in your life at the end of the street. The chance of being murdered by your own parents is much much higher :)

That is such a comforting thought.

Happy Samhain . I remember an urban legend about razor blades in apples before candy became a common treat . Next Christmas Halloween generates the most revenue in the U.S.

I enjoy it as well...We don't get trick or treaters anymore though.

I'm off out at 6pm to the pub for some grub.

They can knock but there'll be no one home. :P

They knock here and there is someone home. Knocking doesn't get them very far.

As a Scot , living in England, I was surprised when I moved here in the 60's that they (the English) didn't celebrate Halloween at the time. Back home we didn't call it "Trick or Treat" but it was known as "Guising" and I'd been guising for at least 7 of my 10 yrs on earth at the time. I remember "Dookin" for apples on Halloween and turnip lanterns (took hours to hollow out, unlike pumpkins). We had to do a party piece, sing a song or recite a Burns poem, or do a wee dance, before being rewarded with sweeties (or if ye were lucky, a thruppeny bit).
My how times have changed.

Happy Halloween :):)
