Halloween brings out the curmudgeon in me. I have always struggled to drum up any enthusiasm for it. I think I was traumatised by one bin-bag-based costume too many in my childhood.

My children had to rely on their mother to organise and accompany them on their trick-or-treating tours while I just about tolerated the distribution of treats to callers to our house.
