This year Halloween was so much fun!
I was a little bit more prepared this time and made a few Halloween biscuits & put together treat bags filled with sweets and the biscuits. I also put a few random decorations up on the windows and had a lit candle in the window. I completely underestimated the number of children who would knock on my door that night! Last year I had maybe a handful of children trick or treating, this year there had to have been between 25-30 little princesses, draculas there was even a cute ‘Chucky’!. Did get a few older kids but to keep the peace gave them sweets as well. I was exhausted by the end of it all, at one point I thought I was going to run out of sweets but fortunately by then things had quieted down.
Some people thing trick or treating is a nuisance and it is an American things but I think it all depends on the area you live in and to maybe have a bit of faith in the kids and their parents. I have to say the children who came to my house were all accompanied by adults some of whom even dressed up themselves. It’s a bit of fun for the youngsters abs yes they get lots of free sugary treats, but that’s a problem for their parents to deal with as their little darlings run riot whilst on a sugar high!
Whilst at the homeless meet up I did hear about how there were a group of teenagers who unfortunately do ruin it for the others running around throwing flour and eggs at people’s houses and cars. Guess I was one of the lucky ones this year and got the nice monsters!
