This year I have been really trying to resist buying more Halloween stuff, I have so much I could probably set up my own shop! While I will talk about this year's Halloween events in a later post, I thought I would look back at previous year's Halloween events.
I can't really remember Halloween as a child, apart from having a plastic witches hat and broom and painting a picture of a pumpkin (which my kitten ran through while it was still wet and covered the kitchen in tiny orange paw prints!). It's only in later years I have really been aware of more Halloween stuff being celebrated here in the UK. We certainly have some catching up to do with our American friends!
When I was younger I didn't take so many photos. I'm going to sound really old, but we didn't have smartphones to easily take pictures, we had to take a roll of film to a photo shop and get them developed! So photos were usually limited to birthdays and holidays.
However a friend of mine uncovered this photo, the earliest Halloween themed picture I have!
I love this dress- think it may be making a reappearance this year!
These horns actually came with the bat costume. This was Halloween night a couple of years ago- waiting for trick or treaters!
Since my 24th birthday I have been gradually building a Halloween collection and now I have loads of boxes full of decorations. I am obsessed with pumpkins- I think they are cute :) As I have just sold my house I shall miss the trick or treaters and decorating my house but I am sure I will display a few pumpkins :)
My Halloween Traditions
Every Halloween I watch Hocus Pocus and have a Halloween themed feast using my Halloween plates, bowls and glasses.
I shall also be pumpkin carving this year and making some pumpkin pie :-)
Do you celebrate Halloween? What do you like to do? How are you celebrating this year?
