I really get annoyed when...

That's true. I forgot about the vandalism side of the holiday. >.<

Might have been my Dad's fault though.He was hiding in the gradge and comes out when he hears people, but we told him not to scare the little kids, since last time, the parents bitched us out. But...well...
And hell, my mom got those white out contacts (the ones that make your eyes completely white except for alittle bit) and even I was running away from my own mommy

But, you are right. All of the kids here are really sheltered. There was this girl I knew in the 7th grade, and I told her about the day I found otu Santa wasn't real (well, come on, she is in the 7th grade, she should know by now) and her Mom yelled at me for "crushing her childs young dreams"

I used to live in an area that prided itself on big decorations and scariness to most of the time the kids screamed got a hug then walked it off or laughed. I think if a guy jumped out the leaves at my kid he cry then try to throw his pumpkin candy holder at him lol. I just wish more kids tricked or treated I seen alot of the good candy on sale and I dont want to buy it only for it to sit around lol I know where it would end up x_x.

But the vandals do annoy me to some idiot teens think its fun to go egging people property or worst. I dont mind a prank here or there but this has gotten ridiculous Halloween isnt about destroying things and its a main factor to why alot of towns just wont put up with it. Razor blades asside (cause alot of that was scares from what ive read and saw.) Many towns just dont want to deal with the stupid deliquents and its sad. I think next year though now that I think about it im going to try to plan a neighboorhood thing, there are too many little kids in this neighboorhood not to have some sort of halloween festivities for them.

Higher schoolers in my town love trick-or-treating XD I know some people in my sophmore class who've been planning their costumes for a while now, and plenty of upper classmen are going out too. I wan't going to go this year, just because I didn't really reel like it, but my friend just invited me to come with her and her 3-year-old sister (who happens to adore me). I think I'll just strap on some fairy wings from last year and call it a costume =P
Anyway, my point is that Halloween isn't just for little kids here.

No, HALLOWEEN isn't only for kids. But I think Trick or Treating is. That's just my opinion. I think when you become a teenager/adult, there's no fucking reason for you to go out and go door to door for free candy when you can march right up to the walmart and buy a bag yourself. I just don't see the point in it if you're not a child.

I just think it's better to go to a Halloween party, get together with friends and go to a haunted house, but leave the trick or treating to the kids.

I agree after a certain age it stops being cute and looks more like mooching. Though I used to give candy to teens who were taking their siblings trick or treating cause heck I know what thats like lugging a bunch of younger kids around. Even if its fun I figure a compensary candy bar for their troubles isnt too much. But if it was a group of big kids Id turn them away even at the risk of the house getting egged.

*Nods* there's a big difference between saying "Hey, you look tired from lugging around Susan, Bobby, and Tommy, here, have a Crunch bar =D" and me giving candy to some teen simply because they slapped together a 2-second sorry excuse for a "costume" and becuase they want to get a bunch of sweets.

I last went trick or treating at 13, and even then I felt a little silly. I just felt..too damn old to be out there gathering candy. I love dressing up, but I can find other ways to do that.

=P That's what anime cons are for. XD

I just think Halloween has lost it's appeal, and I'm not saying that just because I'm too old to trick or treat anymore. There doesn't seem to be any good Halloween specials on (unless you count some channels airing R rated horrors movies at night). Also, since Christmas and Halloween decorations are pretty much sold at the same time now, I think more people would rather buy Christmas stuff for decorating. Unless you've got small kids, I don't think family's would see a point in going to all the effort to decorate. With Christmas it's usually "Family/friends are coming over, let's decorate!" with Halloween it's "Some kids are coming over to ask for candy. Maybe I'll put up a jack'olantern, but other then that, why bother?"

Plus, like people have said, it seems like each year, more and more adults are using Halloween as an excuse to get drunk and vandalize stuff. Parents probably don't want to walk around at night with their kids if there's some drunk idiots roaming the streets, and people don't want to decorate if they think it'll just get ruined.

Now that I agree with. It seems Halloween is disappearing more and more. People barely have parties anymore and invite the neighbors. Communities don't have parties for the town. And how come I can barely find any good scary movies? I managed to find like...two.

Exactly. And that's why it should be left to the kiddos.

Hell, I don't wanna spend the money to decorate if some jackass is going to mess it up, either.

Halloween seems like a dead thing where I live too. I was fourteen when I stopped, and really I'm not that torn up over it. Most tweens in that age group go out under the pretense of Trick or Tweating but just smoke weed. :roll: Actually i don't even get many little kids any more where i live currently. Ever since 9/11 it's really dwindled off. I don't know if 9/11 has anything to do with it but it's what I've noticed.

But sometimes I get some real weirdo's at my door. :shock: Most of them fully grown adults, they actually come in small groups with not a single child or even teenager with them. And these adults ranges from people my age in the their early twenties to what looks like people in their mid and late thirties. It seems to have become a trend in my area. Last year I had some 40 something year old man who was balding dressed as a butterfly come to my door. All by himself. With no else with him. :!: Trick or Treating. :? I was a little freaked out and embarrassed for some reason.

This year I made an effort to get sweeties for the kiddies however, if some loon answers the door in a hoodie and says "trick or treat" i'll close the door in his face.

Unlike other kids my age, I don't wear a hoodie and a mask. I wear a "costume". I saved up ALOT of money to get the costume I'm wearing tomorrow @[email protected]
The only problem with denying teens candy over here is that the parents will get pissy and tell you off, or they will vandalize....trust me, I know >__>

I know I'm probably too old to be trick-or-treating. I'm fifteen. Not gonna lie. I go trick-or-treating with my five and seven year old niece and nephew. My problem is, I can't seem to grow up. I won't deny it. I realized at too young of an age that life is too short and that I didn't want to be an adult. When I turned thirteen, I thought it was so devastating because I was a "teenager" and no longer a "child."
I just wish Halloween was more of a big deal where I live. Last year, all these high schoolers (couldn't have been much older than me) rode around in a black van with a megaphone yelling curse words at kids walking by. We were gonna call the cops, but they had their license plate covered.
Then, the next day, we found out that somebody had egged my mom's car and threw god knows what at my dad's pick-up truck, so he had a shattered window. I agree, though, people my age are ruining it.
But Halloween has always been a big deal in my family. We decorate the most out of our whole neighborhood (which isn't that hard to do :P) and kids love coming to our house. My brother's the Halloween obsessive, I think he tries to bring back the time where Halloween was actually scary and kids actually enjoyed it. Back when you didn't have to check your candy so psychos didn't poison you.
Growing up in this time era sucks. :P

Ugh, I get annoyed when I'm at school, doin'my work, and some damn kid starts beat boxing and/or rapping.

This, of course, leads to an entire crew of kids rapping and/or beatboxing and then it just gets out of hand.

(Now, I really lose it when the teacher then proceeds to participate... D=< )

This is happening more recently, as I notice it more...

Does anyone else get really annoyed with all these random sex scenes in movies? You're watching a movie, and a sex scene is thrown in, to "inhanse the plot" when just implying it happened would do just as well. It just seems unnecessary, and disturbing. Movies marketed as PG-13 have sex scenes in them... we just watched one in school today. *shudder* Can't we restrict it to the pornography industry, rather than putting it in every hollywood film possible?
