Inspired by sitting in the pub on Saturday when a woman came in with two kids, about seven or so, wearing really shitty plastic masks, and said 'Trick or treat? Halloween? For the kids?' Do they want a sip of my pint or something? Fuck off.
My parents insist it is legitimised begging and I was never allowed to do it, and I now pass on the same grumpiness to the next generation. Did you ever do it? Will you be welcoming? Will Halloween ever really catch on?
