A man has been told by police to tone down his Halloween decorations after a display made a child cry.....The house, in Hertfordshire, has been decorated for Halloween with a collection of gory decorations but a local parent complained to police that the display was too frightening for their child and it had reduced them to tears.
The house belongs to James Creighton who transforms his home each Halloween to raise money for Cancer Research UK in memory of his grandmother who died from the disease. Last year he raised £1,100 for the charity, and has collected £1,358 so far this month.....
Mr Creighton claims this is the first complaint he has ever received and says he is determined to keep the display up and raise as much money as possible for charity. Good on him!!
I cannot believe the person who called this in wasn't charged with wasting police time.....Surely this lady can walk on the other side of the road or just try and divert her child's attention away from that one house when they walk past.....
I thought the whole point about Halloween was to be scared....If i cry at Christmas because the lights are too bright or flash too much will they demand that someone takes their Christmas decorations down....I don't think so!!
When Ellie was 3 she was upset by a man in a red suit with a big white beard saying "hello little girl" Should I have rung the Police?
Children are going to see scary things....it's up to you as a parent to prepare them for that and explain it to them in my opinion.
I wish he was my neighbour because my girls would love it!!
