our most favourite time of the year!  Not for the blood and gore that's usually waiting to terrify you from row upon row of horrifyingly gruesome shop window display but for the sense of community it brings. Trick or Treat is the evening when our home actively connects with many of the families and children living their lives around us.

Halloween playdough

Playdough activities helps to share what Halloween is about, the historical and cultural aspects of a day long (or possibly longer) festival and the different ways that people might be celebrating it.

Our enjoyment is dressing up. Guises that depict spiritual, magical, creepy and spooky in a maybe unconventional way of remembering those who have walked ahead of us, honouring fictional characters as well as their creators. Then there's the village tour, refreshing our memory of road names, pathways and discovering locations of faces whom would otherwise remain 'good morning' on trips to the local post office!

Equally important of course are the brimming bags of gifted goodies, fun which is not reserved solely for our youngest.

All this happening on what is probably the only day of the year that it's considered acceptable.

As with the Fireworks code, there are rules we share as a family in order to respect fellow residents and to keep everyone safe. From the onset, phones are charged and on, no house decorations means no knocking, always politely decline an invitation to go inside and before venturing out it can be useful to agree routes so that everyone knows where to meet up, and that pretty much sums up our out N about!

Indoors, and it's all about the pumpkins, dough both playing with and eating:)  Do have an awesome day and a spooktacularly amazing evening xx
