Thread Name: BS: Trick or Treat. the revenge.
Subject: RE: BS: Trick or Treat. the revenge.
Just to balance up the picture a bit, in this tiny Norfolk, UK village, we lit a pumpkin lantern outside the door, and had a stream of absolutely delightful children, some even teenagers, all in costumes. I gave them small sweets and they were polite and charming. Their parents hovered nearby on the pavement, just to keep an eye on things. Nobody demanded anything and we were so amused to see their witches and wizards outfits. The best was a tiny little lad of about three dressed as a ghost, but so shy he hid behind his sister. It all stems from community spirit and joint responsibility for all our children.
