This post will be very short and sweet. Trick or Treat is something I dislike with a passion.
Don’t get me wrong I think in a controlled environment where parents take their children to their friends houses I think that is fun. However in my experience there are loads of children who just roam around knocking on random doors. I live in an inner city and in my previous address the whole evening of halloween involved constant door knocking and rattles on the windows, to the extent that my door knocker was pulled off once and left on the path.
Before my mother passed away and was elderly she was scared witless when kids in scary masks knocked on her door. She never opened the door at night without looking through the curtains and window first. She was horrified when a child in a mask peered back at her. Mum had no awareness of what Trick or Treating was – she was so scared by the experience.
To be honest I’m not sure why we have bought into the whole Halloween thing from America. I love America and its people but this is one trend that does not do anything for me.
So there it is – my feelings on this are out there
