a couple years later i added to the greeting by loudly imitating bela lugosi and other characters from "ed wood", unseen from the second floor. most of the kids ran away in confusion, failing to ever collect their candy. what a bunch of hardy boys failures.
best story i ever heard was from a friend of mine, a 6'2" guy who liked to dress up in a bunny costume and jump up and down on a trampoline while holding a running chainsaw. he was absolutely the nicest, kindest human being i've ever known, but in five halloweens, he only got about two trick-or-treaters who were brave enough to collect a single piece of candy. god bless that dude. :D
I make Barm Brack quite often and never heard of it containing any 'objects' other than raisins, peel and currants.
We used to make 'Bubble and Squeak' every Hallowe'en. The noise from frying was to scare off bad spirits.
All Hallows Eve is an Irish holiday dating back centuries.
