Fife Police have created a sign for people to put on their door if they don’t want to be targeted by guisers.
With October 31 upon us, many will be enjoying Halloween traditions such as dressing up in scary outfits and watching horror films.
This is also the day for another Halloween tradition, guising – also known as trick or treating – where (usually) young people knock on doors and ask for a gift.
The Courier is today running a poll asking people how they will react if guisers knock on their door tonight and, as of 1.45pm, 66% of people said they would not open it.
Fife Police has gone a step further and issued a poster for people not willing to interact with Halloween callers.
The tweet invites such people to print it out and put on their doors.

“GUISERS – If you see this sign or similar, make sure you are respectful of the owner’s wishes & move on.#SpookyButSafe”
