I wanted to wish you a very jolly Halloween! I can’t believe it’s already the 31st of October. Where has this year gone? It feels like it has whizzed by in such a flash! How can it possibly almost be November? I really need to get a move on with planning and buying Christmas presents.. anyway, enough of my random rambling.
Have you got much planned for Halloween? I’ve never really celebrated Halloween properly, over the years I have been to the cinema on the 31st to watch the latest horror/thriller as I do love a bit of suspense and have been to a few fancy dress parties but most years I don’t do anything particularly exciting. As a child I wasn’t allowed to go trick or treating until I was in my teens and I have only ever carved a pumpkin once! Back then it wasn’t even as scary, the fancy dress options and the pumpkin art. Pumpkins would simply have toothy smiles and kids would run around on a candy high, trick or treating in their favourite batman cape or their black cat outfit. In recent years, I would totally get why my parents wouldn’t be so keen. How times have changed in the ‘gorey’ department. But then again, I guess Halloween has never appealed to me as much as other celebrations and this year the mister and I are just planning a night in with homemade popcorn, the last of the bonfire brownies and a bunch of horror films but in all honesty I cannot wait for Bonfire Night! I do love a good old fireworks display. Simply magical.
Trick or treat?
