I wanted to make today’s word a bit festive :D
I’ve talked about candy corn, which is popular Halloween candy, but I haven’t addressed the trick part of the trick or treat tradition, so here you go:
random word of the day: to EGG – obrzucać jajami (to throw eggs at something/ somebody)
(1) One of the holiday classics is to egg the house of enemies and those candy curmudgeons who don't want to give out the good stuff.
(2) I had my house egged once... That was terrible to clean off. I blame the Russian Mafia.
(3) A true friend does not judge; a true friend is a shoulder to cry on and someone to egg the ex's house with.
festive – świąteczny (relating to a festival/holiday)
to address – poruszyć kwestię czegoś, zająć się czymś (to discuss something)
Trick or treat! – cukierek albo psikus (a ‘threat’ announced by hungry children who visit your house on the night of October 31st in search of sweets (UK) or candy (US)
a curmudgeon – sknera (a mean person – too careful with money, a stingy person)
an ex – były chłopak, mąż ... (Someone's ex is a person who was their wife, husband or lover in the past.)
to stock up on – zrobić zapasy (to buy a large quantity of something)
I hope you’ve stocked up on sweets so that none of the above-mentioned will happen.
