Forgive me if there has already been a thread about this ( I’ve been away from GN)
I soooo dislike what has become of this so called festival. It is just another opportunity for shops to make money ( costumes , buckets , sweets ) and for children to eat loads of rubbishy sweets and become overexcited. What is there to celebrate about people who have died coming back to haunt the living?

Its the Mischief Night I dislike and the damage done by the people using it as a way to cause damage etc.
I feel ashamed at the media coverage on Merseyside about the mayhem caused (although it will happen in a lot of areas) to the emergency services.
