Every year at the end of October, the UK celebrates Halloween. The modern day festival of trick ‘n treat and pumpkins was originally a religious festival, commemorating dead saints, martyrs and ancestors.
The sane person’s guide to surviving Halloween
Parents need not apply. Ideally, book a long-haul flight to somewhere exotic and come home when it’s all over. Failing that, hole up in a five-star hotel for a day or two, and don’t answer to anybody except room service. Sitting ducks, trapped at home, must fend off the hordes of miniature ghouls, ghosts and beasties by leaving offerings on the doorstep. Since rampant commercialism is behind this fiendish nonsense, bags of party sweets are available from all good retailers. Put the sweets in a plastic tub outside your front door, to save interruption of your evening viewing. Tip: don’t put them all out at once, or the greedy green giant will have the lot in one swoop, and his parents won’t thank you for his midnight sugar rush. Happy Halloween (if that’s not an oxymoron).

This town will no doubt see its entire juvenile population dressed up like crazies out of Psycho running rampant around the streets. If a clumsy ghost tripped over his bed sheet and grazed his knees, he would not be able to blame anyone except himself. However, should anybody be victim to burns from the hot wax accidentally spilled out of the neighbour’s pumpkin candle, there could be a case for compensation.
