The A-Z of Halloween

October 3, 2017

Halloween or Hallowe’en, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. Wikipedia

With Halloween fast approaching for another year, I thought it would be fun to showcase the A-Z of Halloween. Whilst most of us associate pumpkins, witches and black cats to the celebration, there is so much more to it…

The A-Z of Halloween

B is for Biscuits – any excuse!! 


C is for Carving & what to do with pumpkin innards!

D is for Darkness

E is for eerie – from decorations to foggy nights

F is for fancy dress – you’re never too young or old to get into the spirit of things. I love doing elaborate face paint. 

G is for Ghost window clings you can make yourself
