Daily Prompt: Trick or Trick

Todays daily prompt is called Trick or Trick and it asks;

It’s Halloween, and you just ran out of candy. If the neighborhood kids (or anyone else, really) were to truly scare you, what trick would they have to subject you to?

Of course it’s Halloween related because well today is Halloween.

The answer to this question is no.

Trick or treating is a stupid thing and I’m lucky enough to live in England where most people don’t do this nonsense. We teach kids all year not to accept sweets from strangers but on this one day of the year its OK. That rule no longer applies. But it’s worse than that, you encourage your kids to blackmail and threaten them, give us sweets or else. It’s not a trick its a threat.

I don’t open my door to the handful of kids that do come along but in the past me and some friends opened up all the sweets and ate them and wrapped up bits of fruit in their place.

  1. Your post has enlightened me more on this trick or treat thing. It looks like we encourages the kids to do a thing that we’ll not like anybody to do as an adult. Then we are helping them learn s wrong thing.
