Perhaps the person bought that George wax face to use as a scary Halloween decoration.

Haha I put almost the same thing the Happy Birthday thread. It would make a good prop! Possibly the headless horse man.

With all the Christmas decorations already going up in stores, perhaps someone might want to wear their Santa Claus suit for Halloween.

Man, they keep putting decorations up sooner and sooner. I saw Halloween decoration in July. I thought it was Christmas in July, not Halloween.

Very clever. Let's just hope people don't talk about Von Bontee not thinking he is about. Better prepare yourself in casea-hard-days-night-paul-7.

I'm guessing most of you here celebrate Halloween, so I guess you don't have an answer to my question, but I'll ask anyway. What's the best way to ignore trick or treaters, and not letting them know you're in? I usually go out on this day each year, but here I am tonight, and currently being disturbed my little kids every ten minutes. I don't mind them having some fun, but I don't want to have to stop studying all the time to go and answer the door (only to say we have no sweets or chocolate in).  I've already turned the big lamp off in the study and switched a smaller one on which gives off a dimmer light.... and still they know I'm here.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Its fine if you don't answer the door; however, don't be rude about it. I live in the bible belt and I remember a few houses I went to as child people were very rude, "Go away! We don't celebrate Halloween" or slamming doors. I doubt you would do this though. Another option is maybe buy some candy and leave it at the door. I plan to do this myself since I am going out tonight, yet I have decorated my house. I'm going to tape or rope down the candy bowl to the stool (and maybe tie down the stool to my porch), so they little critters won't run off with the bowl.

I think the best (and most polite) way would be to turn off the outdoor lights and put a note inside the door or window saying something like "Sorry, no treats here this year :( Happy Halloween anyway!".

 

That way you're not *that* person who's pretending not to be home.

Oh no I've never been rude if I have opened the door to them. I'm not like that. I would put a bowl of something out, but like you say, they'd be no bowl there the day after!

I'm just sat here in a pair of boxers, and thinking I need to chuck on trousers and a shirt when there's a knock on the door. Three knocks so far, and every time - by the time the shirt and trousers have gone on, so as not to scare the fricking feckers - there's nobody there! Oh! Isn't It A Pity! Isn't it a shame!

Reminds me of a time about 2 years ago I was out trick or treating with 2 friends, we came to one door and you could see the person through the window watching the telly. We rang the doorbell, shouted 'we know you're in there!!' gave them the middle finger and carried on our merry way a-hard-days-night-george-10 If you come to the door and say you don't have sweets, that's fine but when it's blatantly obvious you're there and you refuse to come to the door, you're just a prick

Ours is a thick wooden one, so I'm not sure they'll hear it... :(

Edit: Oy, Katie, don't call me a prick! That's kind of what i'm doing... I have a good reason, though. Exams to study for and lots of essays which I really need to make some progress on! No time for getting up and down, up and down...

The reality of middle-aged hairy beardy paunchy Ron Nasty in his Lennon specs and boxers isn't though. It'd give the fricking feckers nightmares!

I'm being nice by taking the time to put on trousers and a shirt. Is it my fault they can't be bothered to wait to help themself to the pesticide-coated candies I have waiting for them? I'm making the effort!
