英会話ブログ その714     Halloween Havoc (3)

2015/10/31

Some of the jack-O'-lantern pumpkins that people put outside their homes may be taken by bad kids and smashed in the street.

In America, post boxes are often outside of the house and these are a favorie target to be damaged or to have "interesting" things put into them on Halloween.

Kids often buy several cartons of eggs on Halloween, and then throw them at houses, cars, etc.

When I was a teenager, my friends and I would ride around in my car and pelt little kids trick or treating with eggs thrown by us as we drove by.  

This is not nice, of course, but in general, while Halloween actions like that were destructive, no one was actually hurt, and it was a way to "blow off steam" for young people...                                             (G.K)
