open season on Trick or Treaters

anyone else going to 'be prepared' tomorrow night, I for one will make sure I keep my running shoes on,

the house got egged on the night last year but I wasnt prepared in advance for a gentle jog after the little toads, and the gits didnt even knock first. This week my house has already been egged on three separate occasions so am getting in shape for tomorrow, only dilemma is I have the in-laws round for dinner, is it acceptable protocol to skip off after the local scum betwixt courses?

I just get a big bag of sweets and give each of the little darlings a few each, never been egged.
Maybe you have got a reputation as the miserable git who lives in the scary house and is always good for a chase. Remember there is more of them than you and they know where you live.
Give them a 'Cadbury's All Stars' each as a bribe and remain egg free.

Seriously Spuds,

Take the advise from the 28th. Ok you catch one of them, give them a good hiding, but they will still come back.

Ok they are young, but just think about how much worse it could get. What would be next ? Bricks ?.

Honestly, give them a couple of sweets to keep it alright with them.

Open window on 1st floor.
One super soaker.

Funny, it isn't a "tradition" I grew up with. (Halloween)

What did your parents always tell you about accepting sweets from strangers?

I suppose a dose of the ****s from a laxative laced sweet wouldn't do the "little darlings" too much harm.

But knowing how little self restraint they might show when offered a bucket of sweets to help themselves from......

Had a group of surly looking youths last year who were demanding sweets with menaces but hadn't even tried to dress for the occasion, sent them away with a flea in there ears, expecting the eggs any time after nightfall.

Just go out on the slash for the evening and ignore the little [email protected]

Alternatively buy a bird scarer, conceal it in the front garden (with a remote switch) and watch the good times roll.....

First ring at the door came 5 minutes after EastEnders started (and you know what a cliffhanger it was last night!) so I trotted out, handed over goodies to asssorted dressed-up small kiddies (with large parental escort waiting by the garden gate) and back to Trevor and Little Mo's Big Episode.

9.30 or thereabouts, I've just gone upstairs to get undressed, doorbell rings again. I shouted down for the other half to get it. Next thing I hear is something like "...and do you like chocolate too?". Rather loud girly giggles ensued. A few minutes later, he comes back and I asked who it was. A group of 15/16 year old girls, dressed up in stockings and other fairly minimal non-Halloween type attire. Other half sat there grinning for a good ten minutes making sexist observations concerning their womanly features and hoping to find them ringing his doorbell any time they like....

Tripwires, thunderflashes, and bangers attached to waxed cartons of indelible ink...

I left the claymores in storage this year.

Why don't you get an air rifle and shoot them in the bot next year ?

Grief how scrooge like are you lot.

We had a great time, couple of Jack-O-Lanterns in the windows - one with real blood (but then I'm not allowed sharp objects normally). Bowl full of help your self sweets, and some fruit.

Door was answered by myself (helps being fairly tall) - and No 1. short person who was wearing a skeleton costume. Trying to out Trick / Treat the callers.

Kinda helps if you enter into the spirit of things.
