Halloween, one of the few days when I wish I was still a kid so I could roam the neighborhood begging for free candy.

Most of the kids went around last night in our town. I decided to have a little fun.

I opened the door on one, who was wearing some really creepy mask. In my best Christopher Walken style, I said, "Do somethin' SCARY!" He about fell of the porch.

I said, "That wasn't SPOOKY". By now his mom is laughing her head off. He was about twelve.

 

For those planning to climb Sentinel Hill later, remenber, never summon anything bigger than your own head....... ::o:

I'm stuck on candy duty. The kids on our block are fit only for sacrificing to dark, nameless things that howl mindlessly at the gibbous moon. One of these little brats is going to tick me off just far enough (none of them say trick or treat, or thank you, or anything - they just glare at you sullenly, holding the pillow case out, silently threatening to kick over the pumpkin that you painstakingly carved into a reproduction of the cover art of Helloween's album Better than Raw) that I will tear out their filthy, putrid guts and devour them like so much sausage right in front of their obnoxious parents....

 

*cough* ahem. Regaining composure now.

 

I dislike what's become of Halloween these days. I miss the glory days of Samhain (I'm Scotch-Irish - basically, a Celt. This is my holiday, darn it!) and dancing around bonfires. Now it's just candy-grubbing little maggots in cheap, flammable plastic costumes. I hates it. FILTHY OBSCENE CAPITALISTS, PERVERTING THE TRUE MEANING OF HALLOWMASS!

Halloween has new meaning for me this year - our son is only 8 months old, but that's old enough to look adorable in his costume. We're not taking him trick-or-treat per se, but my wife did take him to see some of the neighbors.

 

In former years, I have resented giving candy to little (or not-so-little) sullen kids, who lack the decency to say "Trick or Treat" and (more importantly) "Thank you". The kids who are out early (say, about now, as I write this), are generally OK, since their parents are with them.

 

It's the kids who could just about drive themselves from neighborhood to neighborhood that annoy me.

It is definitely frustrating when kids do not say Trick or Treat, or Happy Halloween, or even thank you for their free candy. The worst though is when it is a young child, that is escorted by parents, and they do not even say anything to the child about not saying Thank you at the very least. That's usually the ones when I make a point of loudly telling the child they are welcome. Usually it is enough to embarass the parents into teaching their kid to be polite.

 

Kids showing up without costume and expecting candy is the ultimate chuckle. We don't give them candy. And then my brother or I used to sit out in the yard menacing would be smart arse punks that think about egging. It also helps that it is a long straight street with lamps on both sides of the property and a big open front yard. There is no real spot to throw from concealment. We also have an active and watchful neighborhood. And we have also been known to return a smelly ovoid projectile if they were dumb enough to throw in my day :devil:

 

Now that I live in apartment, we don't even get kids coming, which stinks, because I loved seeing the costumes.

Wow, if I was out trick or treating as a kid and I didn't say please or Thank you I got an earfull from my Parents on how to be polite and was made to go up to the house again and thank them for the candy. It's been a long time since there were trick or treaters to give candy too. I live in the middle of nowhere. I would have had a bonfire tonight to dance around but all my friends cancelled on me for the impromptu party I wanted to hold so it never happened. I'm just sitting here by myself while my Parents are over at my Sister's place at a party.

wish I had known, you coulda headed over here.

 

we get a ton of those costumed critters.

 

we took the little out early, he had been stalled since he got up this morning, (is it time yet....) and we couldn't hold him any longer. So he was back early enough to answer the door until the treats ran out.

 

the teen is off at a neighbor's haunted house. he is working there in exchange for pizza, staying out of serious mischief.

 

we did better this year, we lasted 15 minutes longer handing out stuff, still didn't quite last a full hour.

Its' strange here, but we had tricks-or-treats last night (I guess it's a church-thing down here) but we did have a few kids drop by tonight...and luckily Steve hadn't eaten ALL the candy yet.... YET.

 

Steve and I and good ol' Unglef just had a nice evening of terror, starting with Dawn of the Dead and concluding with The Fog.

 

I have to say though that all the trick-or-treaters, both youngsters and teens alike, were all very polite here. I think they feared the wrath of my black-cat-familiar and my Undead Servant. (see the 'pumpkin' topic in Show-Offs for details)

This year was pretty lame.

 

We only had one wave of kids lasting less than 10 minutes, my friends sat around with their faces hanging out. Instead of all the great cheesy horror films, they just took turns playing GTA: San Andreas. (As of typing, they're playing Godzilla Destroy All Monsters Melee, at least that's multiplayer).

 

Time to give consideration who to cull from the herd...

Well my girls looked adorable as a witch and a southern belle and they went out with mom to to canvas the neighborhood for treats for dad. ::D:

 

I stayed in and baked an apple crisp *insert pre-emptive SHUT UP! here* so they'd have something warm to munch when they got home. I didn't give out any candy as the last couple years of rude kids turned me off of it. At least I know my wife was there to make sure my girls were courteous.

 

After checking the candy I turned it back over to them and they gobbled a few pieces and then went off to get ready for bed.

 

Maybe I can catch something scary on later.
