What is it about Halloween?
Why do we love it so much? Is it the weirdness, or the thrill of carved out pumpkin heads, with pointy teeth? How about all the ghoulies, witches and ghosts that abound on trick or treat night? All I know is that I love it, even more than Christmas.
When I was a kid, it was my favourite time of year. I particularly remember one halloween, many years ago now. I was about seven and school, for a change, had been great. We made halloween masks in the shape of cats faces. I only lived across the road and as soon as the bell rang, I ran across the road, wearing my mask, knocked on the door, and “frightened” the life out of my lovely mum, by curling my fingers into “claws” and yowling at the top of my lungs.
Tea that night was fantastic. Fish and chips, followed by apple pie. Even now, when I smell a freshly baked apple pie, it’s so evocative, it brings tears to my eyes.
So however you choose to celebrate All Hallows Eve, have a safe and happy Halloween. 😀
