Same old, same old

halloween-pumpkinAh, Halloween weekend.

One of the days in the year when we have leave banned, not that getting leave on most other days is much easier. Doubtless the little scamps throughout every town in the area will be out on the streets, joshing with their neighbours, (you NEVER go trick or treating to people you don’t know, right kids?) & filling up their little Halloween bags with nice wholesome pieces of fruit, some sweeties & the odd small denomination coin or two.

Or we might have another chaotic weekend of assaults & criminal damage caused by the usual suspects whose parents have neither a clue nor a care about what their offspring get up to most nights of the year.

    I hate Halloween, American style, it just ‘allows complete cunts to be, well, cunts.

    Being an ex-pat, Halloween the first year I was out here came as a surprise. The local municipalities decree a two-hour window on one specific evening for trick or treating.

    This year, as all the others, you could see little groups of kids, winding along the streets, supervised by four or five adults per group.

    No hassles, no problems, just polite people enjoying a nice evening.

    Maybe it’s living in a fairly quiet, small town but it’s a far cry from my old place in the UK.
