(Sadly I had to remove the image from this blog post as it was being hotlinked to from a Chinese website where the man said they were his kids).
I’m actually quite sad that my kids are not really wanting to do much of the Halloween type things this year. I can probably safely say that they won’t go Trick or Treating – or Guising as we call it up here for too much longer.
Yes, eldest and littler might go their own ways, and yes, middler is probably going to want to do it until he’s 25, but other people wouldn’t understand a big kid knocking on their door and enthusiastically reciting a joke like:
Q. Why did the chicken cross the road?
A. Because it’s Christmas next week.
Eldests costume had middler in tears for about half an hour before we ventured out, and there were very few people going from door to door. A few doors asked us to take as many sweets as they could carry as they’d not seen any guisers.
It was absolutely freezing, so I can totally understand why.
Needless to say, we didn’t stay out long, and only managed two streets before littlest and I put our feet down and made the other two join us in heading home. Entrepreneurial eldest and middler were all for cashing in on the lack of door knockers and would have stayed out much much longer…..
Here they are, my Frightful Kids.
