Guy Fawkes was great fun back when WE were kids. A different time and different culture. God help us all if todays generation got there hands on anything explosive.My daughters have always been the scrooges. Every year they'd want to put up a sign "no trick or treating here", I always said to them there is no need to do that as I thought it was rude, just politely don't answer the door as if no one is home.
Halloween has always been a bug bear with me. Hate the slow Americanization of our country (lets not forget Valentines day). I used to have constant battles with my kids about it. Called me a wet blanket and a scrooge. Couldn't understand my point of view. One year they were old enough to make the effort of going to the store to pick up the lollies and whatnot for the neighbourhood kids when they came. That lasted a year. Now the "need not apply" sign is back up.
