We have nothing up to indicate we're doing trick or treating, since we've moved my youngest dcs room is above the front door and he gets woken up when people knock.... and yet we've had 8 separate Groups come knocking!!!!! I start any first full time in 3 years tomorrow, and the boys have their first full day of nursery, we all needed a chilled out night!! Aibu in thinking that it's just rude to knock on doors when there's no decorations pumpkin ect?
We put a padlock on our front gate. It's worked a treat I don't particularly like Halloween and we've got 2 kids under 2 and if anyone wakes them up so they can try as nick my sweets I will not be best pleased. Just before you think I'm an awful person
we live in a street that dosent seem to have any children in it , though i dont do decorations i have a big bag of sweets ready and havent had a single knock and havent seen any children outside at all
Took my son around earlier (probably too early) and as there was only one house decorated (our NDN) we just knocked there. Did wonder what the etiquette was about knocking. But then someone earlier knocked at the door on the other side of the house (with no decorations).
Our area seems to be pumpkins or don't knock. I've only just realised and hungvyhe pumpkin out after a crap attempt to make a wreath out of sainsburies bags. I thought it might look all Pinteresty. It didn't.
Just moved here so not sure of protocol. It seemed that a lit pumpkin was the signal but I have nothing this year. I have still had 3 groups at the door so far. I don't mind as I have a tub of Heroes to dish out but it's interesting that the pumpkin sign isn't universal in these parts after all.
<if I find who is letting off really house rattling fireworks I will shove what's left of the Heroes up their bum>
