To think just because you turn something orange doesn't mean it's Halloweeny.

Maryland cookies did a toffee apple version a few years ago, they were lovely.

We were in a cafe today and 2yr old DD pointed at the stickers on the window and said "look mummy, a bat, a ghost and an onion!" Not really relevant to the thread but made me smile :-)

Come to Sainsbury's, where it's Hallowe'en all year round!

Which swimming pool will have green water? Want want want! thlenvy

giraffes Yes Halloween preferable to Christmas even with all the orangeness.

Yes, I get annoyed with this. Here in Scotland, we have our own traditions which I don't think should be fucked with.

Turnip lanterns and guising. Proper guising, not trick or treat shite.

I didn't see a pumpkin until I was an adult!

letsgomaths the green pool is down south, bet the kids will love it! mine are too old now but would of been straight in when they were younger

Looking forward to 1st of Nov when all of this shit of these products will be reduced to make room for their Christmas extravaganza!

Yup guising rocks

guising sounds much funner that trick or treat. thlenvy

mrspremise Tue 22-Oct-13 18:58:37

I grew up in Scotland and went guising every year. I now live in Wales and send the kids guising every year, we don't do trick or treating in this house and the dcs understand why I think the fact that the village shop already has a sign up saying that they will not sell eggs and flour to under-16s helps me to explain it

Was in Tesco with DS (5) earlier and he pointed out the 'punkins' and the 'cotwebs' grin.

Just seen SCaero bubbles, with orange centres grin

YABU.

Fiendish fancies have a slight orange flavour to them, and are amazingly delicious and more-ish. I am 32 weeks pregnant, craving them massively and worried about how I'll get by when they've disappeared next week thlshock
