Thanks for posting.
Many, what's even worse is that this parent or guardian is teaching / showing a child this behaviour.
Any proof this is in any way real ?


certainly doesn't look it

When 'Mommy' bends over to pick up the candy she dropped you can see exactly where last year's haul went.

I thought this was acceptable now.

You probably don't want to know what I really think

I did not say anything about what people are capable of mate

This however does not look in anyway 'real' to me.
Halloween is an American thing and it should stay there....

Well we could always make it different and just have Halloween parties and stop trick or treat.

I can't stand trick or treat. Giving people free sweets for no reason (apart of worrying that your house will get egged if you don't).

No front lawn. Maybe I'll just have to get some loud speakers and blast a police siren whenever they come close

Or just stick a bag of manure outside your door (tape letterbox shut), the smell will keep them away.

It’s not like it’s a new thing though is it.

I remember trick or treating over 30 years ago.

It does seem to be either you love it or hate it.

Personally I love Halloween and enjoying hosting a party each year and take my kids out trick or treating.

This year lots of the houses had put up amazing decorations covering all the house and garden. It very much resembled the American movie depiction of Halloween 🎃

To a certain extant i agree with this

It's not acceptable now, it's just normal now. Sad isn't it.

I personally don’t want people knocking at my door, if I wanted people at my door I’d invite them, many people feel the same. Remember whilst you enjoy it for many elderly people or vulnerable people this time of year causes them a lot of fear of large groups of people knocking at the door.

As I said I have no problem with people getting dressed up and having parties etc but trick or treat should be banned in the same way as cold calling is.

There are lots of poster available to put up if you don’t wish to be disturbed.

Surely people are aware to only go to houses with decorations and pumpkins and are obviously celebrating.

People shouldn’t have to put up posters to opt out, they shouldn’t be disturbed or hassled as it shouldn’t be allowed.

People are not aware. My house had no decorations, seasonal lighting, etc. but 4 people still knocked anyway. I doubt the people in my area would read the sign, or if they did they would ignore it.

Yeah that’s an excellent idea.

I would assume if people had put pumpkins out and they had decorations they were participating.

But op in posters is an even better idea

...after the Scots & Irish migrated to the United States in the 19th Century.

Before then it was a Celtic event; possibly originating from the Gaelic festival "Samhain".

There's a world of difference between the pagan Samhain, the Christian All Hallows Eve, and the corporate American candy/costume companies' Halloween which is what we've imported over here.

Took my little girl trick or treating this week and only knocked at houses that were visibly celebrating Halloween. On our way down the street, an elderly gent popped his head out of his front door and called us over “Why haven’t you called here?” He wanted to know. When I explained that there were no obvious signs he was celebrating, he responded with “oh, so that’s what it is? I’ve see tonnes of people walk by, but you’re the first I’ve be able to give sweets out to!”

I love my estate!

Over two hundred years of difference too but I was responding to @cmdr_elito claiming it was an American thing.

However, just because our cousins over the Pond do something with commercial undertones, this does not automatically mean we have to do it too.

You'll be telling me next that the reason Father Christmas is dressed in red & white has something to do with the Coca-Cola Company.

I’m pretty sure the celts didn’t put bowls of Haribo on their doorsteps or knock on each other’s doors. Halloween as we know know it now is an American import (fact).

The origins of Christmas goes back to Jesus and even further back to pagan times (winter solstice). We don’t all go to stone henge in white hoods to celebrate Christmas do we....
