Ok... too late for this year, but NEXT Halloween... (2005)...
Sassy's thread got me to thinking... and rather that 'poop' on her thread, I decided to start a new one.
I say that we ex-JWs start our OWN traditions for 'Trick-or-Treating'.
Next year, Halloween is on a Monday. I think that we need to have some sort of 'regional' (I.E. several through the U.S.) Trick-or-Treat thingie... sort of like an Apostafest... but with a 'twist'.
We need to go only to known JW homes... banging on THEIR doors - yelling at the top of our lungs "TRICK OR TREAT!!!!!"
Sorta 'payback time' for all of their door-knocking, eh?
Oh, I know... their homes will be dark... to simulate a 'not at home'. But - we'll just have to write them down - and come back later. (joking)
Hmmm... since that night may be a 'bookstudy' night, it might do well to know where they hold the local 'bookstudys' in the homes... and also 'hit' them.
The beauty? Everyone will be in costume (or some in drag), so no one will be recognizable. Just a bunch of hooligans banging on their doors... as THEY whimper and hide - hoping that the people will just 'go away'.
P.S. I actually started thinking about how JWs behave when I was at my friends' home for Halloween. The corner house has new people living in it (Section 8). In the past, it was THE house on the block - with the tenants there going all out - a stereo system blasting Halloween sounds, etc.
This year - it is all dark. I asked my friend about it, and he said that some new folks have moved in. He said something like, "They're weird." I instantly thought 'JWs!!' I still mean to ask him and Sheri about it - Sheri will know.
