If you’re taking part this Halloween by handing out treats you should place a pumpkin whether real or a plastic pumpkin lantern in a window visible to the street. A clear sign that you will answer the door. So bear that in mind too, if you’re knocking on doors don’t bang on all the doors in the street! Some people are happy to hand out sweets but others disagree with it all. So look for houses that are decorated, showing a pumpkin or sometimes leave a few treats outside. That means help yourself and is also a polite way to say ‘please do not disturb.’ That way you’ll not upset anyone. This Wikipedia link below is interesting so it wasn’t the USA that started it all maybe they were more responsible for the commercialization, which many of us now get to enjoy. Mostly in UK people give out sweets a few will give money. Personally, disagree with dishing out money, it should be for fun enjoying dressing up. Let the children trick or treat with an adult to keep safe, it’s not really for teenagers. As that makes it uncomfortable for others wondering who is banging on their door at night. They are not sure what to give, if they want sweets or expect money. So alternatively, why not have a get together with friends and explore a few traditional games instead with sweet treats and forfeits – such as ‘Bobbing for Apples’ where apples are placed in a large bowl/bucket of water. The apples will float and the idea is to grab an apple with only your mouth/teeth, keep your hands behind your back. It’s a bit disgusting and a bit tricky. So forfeit enough must be winning/getting the apple after everyone’s been attacking it with their teeth! So maybe the prize could be a toffee-apple (that most definitely hasn’t been dunked!) If you get to play – HAVE FUN.
If you're planning to celebrate this Halloween get a head start now. Whether it's a children's or adult party you're planning or attending. Get your thinking cap on now. Take inspiration from our Halloween Pinterest board we've added make-up, food and much more. We've included some fun stuff from costume ideas, home decorating, make-up to spooky recipes. For home decorations start gathering DIY items like cardboard, paint, string, bandages or strips of fabric. You can make decorations for next to nothing by using things you would normally recycle. Let your imagination run wild. Then depending on how much space you have to decorate you can decide what to place where. For children make it more on the fun side, you don't want to give them nightmares. Then for adults don't forget to make the bathroom spooky you don't want them staying in there too long. You could store the alcohol bottles in an ice bath and cover in fake cobwebs to deter them from consuming too much. HAVE FUN.
