    Woke to find chocolate milk allover one side of motorhome. Fortunately I found it before it had dried on. This is vandalism in my book, we had sweets but no one bothered to knock.j

    It's nothing to do with Hallowe'en but either vandalism or an accident someone didn't own up to.

    Bloody Americanism brought over by Walmart and Tesco. Just a money making exercise.

    I find it too much of a coincidence that the emergence of 'Trick or Treat' and Haloween in general over the last few years conincides with the overall reduction of Fireworks night festivities on a personal level.
    Once upon a time, before the H and S brigade got their hands on firework legislation and the like, there was no Haloween.

    It is just commercialisation's way of filling a gap in their market.

    There was always guising in the Borders..... kids and adults would go from door to door in disguises and usually sing for sweets. It's still called guising here but we are around 50 years behind the rest of the UK. Sandy Shaw has been at No 1 for a week.

    A bit paranoid I think!
    Could have just been an accident ,all said and done it's just milk ,it will wash off no probs as will bird shit dried by the sun for a week or two.
    Was it a couple of youths up to no good ,it could have been ,today tomorrow or next week. It could happen any where or any time .The fact that you had sweets in and no one knocked means what? .Are you trying to blame Halloween !

    I thought it was a 2000 year old Pagan festival, where Celts dressed as ghouls and were given sweets to appease the dead. Try as they might to claim they invented it, the Americans weren't around then!
    I thought they just introduced the pumpkin.

    Pretty much spot on.. and little to do with sceptics..
    I am a bit baffled as to why chocolate milk on the side of the van would
    A) damage anything
    B) be anything to do with Haloween

    Chocolate milk would not be anyones choice of nuisance making.. eggs yes, but chocy milk ?

    Yep, hoards of Celt's mincing around, covered on Haloween woad, knocking on cave doors, people giving them Spangles and Dolly Mixtures........:Eeek: The modern version of All Hallows Day is just a trumped up version of how The Yanks see it, however, it is still practised in it's original form today, in Ireland. People copy there own heads by using turnips, (which explains a lot to me). :)
    Two pictures. The first one is an Irish turnip. (y) The second one is an Irishman dressed as a turnip.......:)

    Maybe my assumption was incorrect but we have a long drive and the vehicles are not visible from the road so it is unlikely that anyone would accidentally do it. I was irritated as I was up early and had a long journey and I had not factored in having to clean one side of the van. As it was not fully light it was not obvious what it was until after I had cleaned it off easily.
    Thank you for the humorous comments. If the Pope has his way it will be Dia de los muertos although that started as a non Christian festival as well like so many.
    I can remember trying to carve swedes and turnips and even potatoes as a child , don't think pumpkins arrived in the Westcountry untill I was an adult.

    Depends what the morons have to hand at the time. We haven't suffered from that sort of vandalism here but often have bottles/cans/pizza boxes dumped over the garden wall when the morons tire of carrying them.

    Perhaps choice differs as a result of the lack of brain cells :)

    Well, I for one love to have the trick or treaters knocking on my door so I can meet them and hand out sweets. All are accompanied by their parents and for me it's great fun. Something l look forward to each year. Very surprised at the number of members who post negative comments on this event. Still, as they say up north, there's nowt as queer as folks.
