I just read something that said if you see teenagers trick or treating don't tell them they are too old for that kind of thing. They only get to be young once and they could be out doing something much worse. Wish them a happy Halloween and leave them be.

I used to do dumb things on Halloween when I was a young pup. Then the years at university hit. I’m sure I don’t have to explain that....Nowadays I LOVE to make my house scary looking. I also use an obscene amount of dry ice and tubs of water in the yard. I dress up like Jason and sit perfectly still on the porch. Then at just the right moment I stand up and scare the living crap out the parents. The kids don’t seem to get scared much LOL

Halloween is a European-rooted holiday. Stop cultural appropriation!

Lol, trick or treat is actually a bastardisation of a very ancient celebration.

Haha let us keep something pure!
Honestly, here, kids knock your door dressed as witches or whatever then wish you happy halloween, no tricks, the householder wishes happy halloween back, or happy Allantide, then gives them a few coins or sweets/candy.
The US thing of 'egging' houses has started to show it's ugly head though, international media creep, it is a pity.

Dude if you think throwing eggs is bad. A few years back some punk ass kid or kids put pieces of ham on my cars like polka dots. Do you know what ham can do to a paint job?

Because such things could never happen in your wonderland right? There’s always going to be bad actors wherever you go. People can be terrible anywhere.

One year, I dressed up as a stuffed dummy on a reclining lawn chair while Mom passed out candy after my sister was done for the night. Full head mask, gloves, mirrored sunglasses under the mask, newspaper coming out the sleeves...it was perfect. I laid there and would twitch a finger or my hand, depending on the age of the kids getting candy and was far enough away that they would catch that movement out of the corner of their eye.

After a few hours, some older kids 12-13 years old decided to steal that lady’s dummy. I whispered over to her to let them as they hid behind the bushes. She even went so far as to go inside to “get more candy” to help them, announcing it as she got up. They didn’t take the bait until she turned her chair after returning.

I let them easily move my right arm and leg down, but acted like my left arm was tied down. As the one working the legs began to pat me down looking for the rope, I stood up and grabbed the one working the arms by the shirt and picked him up off the ground and in a demonic gravel said “Don’t be stealing no dummies on Halloween.” The one working the legs and the lookout ran screaming as the one held in the air screamed, then sighed as he went limp in my hand, no doubt wetting himself in the process. Soon as I lowered his feet to the ground he sprang to life and ran screaming into the night.

My amusement was squashed by Mom, when she told me that there just happened to be a little kid, maybe four or five years old getting candy at the time it happened. The kid ran up the street, left his Mom for dead and decided his bag of candy was weighing him down so he ditched that as well. She didn’t catch up to him until about four houses away. To keep the poor kid from being scarred for life, I had to show him I was a person under it all. He then spent the next 20 minutes “doing magic” making the dummy move by command in front of other kids coming by for candy.

Ham soaked in brake fluid does a treat!

It is a wonderland, people and kids wish each other happiness at this time of year, not threaten people with tricks.
Don't feel defensive about that, it is a tradition of many hundreds of years, I'm just saying how it is in my world.
EDIT
I'm not dissing your world, just sharing my disappointment that 'egging' houses has become a thing and imported from the US.

Stay on topic fella, I don't live in Northern Ireland.
That has nothing to do with halloween or Allantide.

Last weekend I was sitting in my garage not doing anything. My neighbor walked up and asked about possibly getting the whole street in on a giant spooky themed Halloween night. I told him what I was going to do and now we may have the whole street in on it! I’m talking like possible 10 fog machines and an untold amount of dry ice. Spiderwebs everywhere and zombies and everything else that’s scary!

Yeah but the Northern Ireland thing was a bit lame lol, I'm not even in a pissing contest, I just shared the customs of my local area at this time of year and lamented the US 'trick' thing, egging houses and such like.
If you want to defend that go ahead.

I used to sit by an upstairs window and toss candy to the little heathens but candy weighs so little I just taped them to rocks for a better toss.


Little bastards finally got the message and stopped coming to my house!
