Superman Rings the Doorbell

Trick or Treat is far more popular here in the US than in the UK. Until yesterday, however, I had not realized that this popularity meant that the trick or treating could start earlier than the last day of October: seven months earlier.

We had the first trick or treater ring our doorbell yesterday; a five year old girl dressed as superman. Before you jump to conclusions about greedy American kids on the hunt for candy, I should explain some background. Due to an error by one of work colleagues I worked until nine at night on Halloween last year and missed trick or treat. Our new home is just round the corner from this colleague. She borrowed a friend’s daughter, dressed her up and brought her round. A mix of April Fool’s joke and make-up for missing Trick or Treat; funny and delightful in equal measure.
