Will people be T or T-ing on Monday or over the weekend do you think?

Thanks, I'm trying to work out shifts etc

There's only one possibility, surely? It's a Hallowe'en tradition (well it is in some places) and there's zero justification for bothering anyone on any other night.

OSETmum Thu 27-Oct-16 23:19:07

None of them. But he's going to a party on Saturday.

Halloween is 31st October therefor Monday and only Monday.
Dont come looking for sweets any other night you will get short shift here.

Halloween night.

Sheezus Thu 27-Oct-16 23:22:04

I refuse to take ours out but I will expect callers on Monday.
There isn't an alternative night.

IMissGrannyW Thu 27-Oct-16 23:25:17

What Sheezus said.

Except... It's not our bloody tradition. So why is it suddenly so bloody important!!!! And can I just chuck in "grabby"

I do, however, have sweets in to dole out. ON MONDAY.

I've never even heard any night other than 31st October mentioned anywhere except on MN. It's only ever Halloween night regardless of which day of the week it falls

Catzpyjamas Thu 27-Oct-16 23:30:12

To answer the OP, you do Halloween on 31st October, no other date. However, parties can be held on any convenient nearby day.

Depending on where you live, it IS a tradition.
Guising in Scotland has gone on for generations. I never realised it wasn't done elsewhere when I was a child.confused

WorraLiberty Thu 27-Oct-16 23:32:14

Blimey, we do lots of things for fun that aren't traditional.

Willow2016 Thu 27-Oct-16 23:34:07


Halloween is older than 'God', its nothing new.

Eevee77 Thu 27-Oct-16 23:35:20

We have kids here knocking on the door up to a week before Halloween. A lot of them teenagers trying their luck. No sweets here before Halloween night. My DS won't be T&T because he's too young but I'll put a pumpkin on the doorstep and he'll enjoy handing out sweets on Monday.

Normandy144 Thu 27-Oct-16 23:35:43

Monday! We will be decorating at the weekend so that we are ready for Monday but I'm not expecting any ToTers until Monday.

helensburgh Thu 27-Oct-16 23:36:01

Depends where you live. In Kilmarnock. I'm sure it's the Friday ir Saturday. Can't think which. Nearest to the 31st.

Chicklette Thu 27-Oct-16 23:37:39

Yup, I'm Scottish so a 'guiser' but didn't know if anyone would know what that was. Good to know that Monday is the night. Thanks. Only problem is that I'll almost certainly have eaten all the fun sized sweets by then!!

Catzpyjamas Thu 27-Oct-16 23:41:58

helensburgh, if any guisers chap my door before Monday teatime, they'll be getting short shrift.
Chicklette, I've hidden the Halloween sweets from DH in so many places that I may not find them all by Monday. grin

soupmaker Thu 27-Oct-16 23:53:33

Monday, apart from in Kilmarnock, in which case it's the Friday before. Anyone coming to our door on any evening apart from Monday will be disappointed.

Catzpyjamas Fri 28-Oct-16 00:04:07

So I Googled Kilmarnock Halloween and uniquely they celebrate Halloween on the last Friday of October there.
You learn something new every day, eh? thlshock

FlyingElbows Fri 28-Oct-16 00:15:36

We're in Kilmarnock so it's tomorrow.

cardibach Fri 28-Oct-16 21:40:19

Surely it's today, Flying? Last Friday in October?
