I actually quite like Halloween. I don't mind it when little kids knock on my door to carry out the tradition of trick or treating. I sometimes can't help but open the door to great the little 'uns to an 'aww', as some of their costumes are so cute.
However, what does bug me is when older kids don't make an effort and still expect sweets. My mum stood up to them this year and forced some teenagers to put on their masks in order to get their desired treats. This made me laugh so much, as she still refused to give 2 oyt of the 4 boys the sweets when they refused to put their masks back on.
So I think we should take a leaf out of my mum's book for next year. If you aren't going trick or treating, maybe you should make the older ones who do embarass themseleves by making them wear their costumes. This could become a bit of fun on behalf of the treat giver outers, we need to make the night fun and not get pissed off every time a little child rings the door bell.
I just thought that I would post a picture of my Halloween costume from last year. Me and my sister went as Jedward (the annoying X Factor twins), and we went in their Ghost Buster costumes. We went full out and had tin foil covered rucksacks and evrything. We even made masks.
So lets all learn from this years events, and make next year an even better Haloween, by embarassing the teenagers who think that they can scrounge free sweets off of strangers. I can tell that it's going to be fun.
