Add to this thread if you have ideas for anything that will stop the little blighters from knocking on your door anytine this evening. Boiling oil from the ramparts is not to be encouraged (unless it's organic and GM free)

First up, pumpkin lantern designs

I'm sorry, but I disagree.

The deterrent effect will be so severe that it need only be done once.
















Which is just as well, as the perpetrator will be At Her Madge's Leisure for the foreseeable .......

I'm pleased to say that I'm in the middle of nowhere in France (group of 5 old houses) and no street lights.

Absolutely NO chance of a knock on the door here.

True...though there is a plethora (plethora mark you) of Halloween 'equipment' for sale in the supermarkets here. I was desperate to purchase a luminous green false witches nose but SWMBO said my own was frightening enough...

No street lights here either and 2 miles down into town so we have never had any grubby kids demanding sweeties with menaces.

I give you this instead :D
