We can go tonight, tomorrow night, Thursday night or Friday night.

No. halloween is one day not whenever it fits in!

No. It's the 31st. People will think you are mad. And probably won't have anything to give you anyway.

No - people won't have any treats in. Only time it's acceptable is if you clear it in advance with one or two neighbours.

I only have sweets in on Wednesday. So dont bother, I'll have nothing to give you!

Of course it isn't. Why not go on the night?

OddBoots Sat 27-Oct-12 18:18:32

Only if you have arranged it with the people you are visiting (although I think that applies to the 31st too).

The sort of unwritten rule round here is that you only visit houses that have been decorated.

When ever you do go please don't come to my house and when I don't answer the door because I have a poorly child in the house please don't egg my house.

LeeCoakley Sat 27-Oct-12 18:21:23

I won't have the house decorated, sweets ready or pumpkin outside. It's unfair on unsuspecting neighbours as well.

LynetteScavo Sat 27-Oct-12 18:22:49


And only go to decorated houses who obviously expect you.

We will only have sweets in that night, as I have banned DP and DS from opening the bags until then and they will have been eaten by the next day once the masses have been at the door for them.

I would be annoyed to get repeated knocks at the door on other nights, It's only really okay on the one night.

TheProvincialLady Sat 27-Oct-12 18:25:10

Not acceptable. A lot of people dislike people knocking on their doors on hallowe'en itself, let alone for days before and after. If you can't celebrate on the day then either don't celebrate at all or don't celebrate in a way that will annoy everyone.

Schlock Sat 27-Oct-12 18:27:01

Absolutely not. Halloween is for halloween night only, if you knock on a door on the wrong night people will think you're nuts.

No, you only go out on halloween and only to houses that have a pumpkin/lights on, etc

CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 27-Oct-12 18:28:23

Haha - I think it's a no then!

<removes batteries from doorbell and turns all lights off on 31st>

Nor on the 31st IMO
