The thrill of Halloween

When my son was young, we hardly noticed Halloween but on Bonfire Night I organised communal fireworks for our street. These days Halloween is hugely popular and I guess that it’s more fun and safer than Bonfire Night.

This evening, the doorbell rang a total of 12 times for groups of young children calling ‘trick or treat’, so that over 40 helped themselves to a dip in the bucket of sweets that we had available in the hall.
