  ;)  Very funny article KC ! Thank you very much !

I've started to celebrate Halloween in 1982, at University, where I met a lot of American and English students, who were waiting for that special day to organize big feasts !!!
So from that year, I 've carved one or two pumkins, preparing soups or "gratins" with what is inside, then put candles in them every 31st of October, and I believe that my own daughters will do the same when they have their own home ! ;)

(We won't have to eat the sweets and chocolates, a band of Ghost, Skeleton, Witches, Zombie came a few minutes ago ! ;D)

Happy Halloween everyone.

I didn't think Halloween was that big outside of the USA. Reading Sylvie's post, I thought, Halloween in France? I've never heard of that.

I've noticed in the last few years down here, stores selling costumes and party things for halloween, but it's never really taken off down here.

There seem to be various parts of the UK that celebrate Halloween with kids calling at doors with Trick or Treat.

For me it is Samhain, the end of the Pagan year, the harvest is in and all is ready for the start of the dark days of winter.   It is a very special occasion when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest and we set places at the table for departed relatives.  Samhain can be spent at Stone Circles or with friends at home.  It is one time of the year we do not want to spend alone.
