Hallowe’en decorations are too scary



S.S.R..

My kneejerk reaction was "What a soft shite, snowflake, etc. etc." then saw the pics and thought they were a bit macabre for maybe a small bairn to see. There's cartoony skeletons and there's ones that actually look like the real thing.

Mind, in Asda, you see people that are clearly scared of salad ingredients and soap, so it takes all sorts.

Need to make a bigger deal of bonfire night instead, leave halloween to the americans. Shops should be full of Borises (Bori?) sitting on exploding kegs of gunpowder.

We had out first whinges on the local facebook group on Saturday night
I'm trying to work out what exact age it is you have to reach when you stop enjoying bonfire night and start crying your eyes out about the nasty noises. Sad times for them.

It's class Halloween like, wish we took it more seriously over here. Can't get my head around people not liking it, the more stuff going on the better (unless it's fireworks 'cos they're crap and scare dogs).

It’s a sign that you have finally entered the middle classes.

I now spend my money on gilets, rather than Catherine wheels and sparklers.

You’d go up in flames instantly in a well stuffed winter gilet, if you caught a stray rocket to the midriff. Best you stay indoors first week of November just in case a charver throws a banger at you

I’m definitely well posh and sophisticated and will be buying shit loads of fireworks to give to the kids to go and set off in the garden.

Yes, you’re fooling no one, the only popping in the lurkston household will be the popping of corks dear boy.

For one parents children according to this report. So the shop in question has bowed to one customer’s complaint and taken them down.

Now, whilst I agree with most regarding the commercialisation of Hallowe’en, surely the whole point of the day (in this day and age) is to mildly scare kids?

Anyway, here’s the report in question.

I must admit they are slightly over the top like
