    Two from my nana:

    “Be quiet or I’ll box your ears”


    “If your Mam finds out she’ll play war with you!”

    My mam used to use “tin of milk” often, also “He’s as dim as a Toc-H lamp” and “The town was like Paddy’s market!”

    I mentioned the last one on here before and someone came back with another version “like Casey’s Court”

  6. You used monkeys blood as an example yourself, but fair enough. I’ve never heard anyone who isn’t from Sunderland use any of those words.

    I have never in my life seen or heard the word ‘Halloweening’ before. WTF is that supposed to be?
  12. Going round with your carved out turnip with a candle in, knocking the doors for "Jack-o-lantern".

    The money you got was added to the Penny for the Guy money and bought your fireworks on Bonny Night

    Scad as in scaddin hot. Scad slang for scald. You used to scald the tea when you poured the boiling water into the teapot. And I've nee idea why my autocorrect was changing it to scat. :eek:

    Means going out 'trick or treating'. On halloween, when I was a kid we used to go knocking on doors asking for a 'penny for halloween' - halloween-ing.

    Our dad regularly played war with us and boxed our ears, too.

    And me ganny was always threatening to have our 'guts for garters'
    Popular. In Dawdon the coal lorry would go down the back street, and a bloke would run down the front opening the front door shouting here's yer coals. You would then unlock your back gate to let them in the yard. If you were out they got dumped in the street under your hatch.

    I'm from Seaham and there's people I know from Sunderland who've never heard the word 'dobbin' meaning 'idiot'.

    Is this a thing?
