Until today I’m slightly ashamed to say I didn’t actually know why we celebrate Halloween but thanks to Wikipedia, I can now consider myself informed. For anyone else who is also in the dark about this spooky celebration, here are the details – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween
When I was a kid we never carved a pumpkin, never mind dressing up and being let out to go trick or treating…ahhh, I hear you cry! Ok, we were in no way deprived (not in the real sense of the word) but all Halloween used to mean to me was eating all the leftover sweets and hey that wasn’t such a bad thing!
This generation of Collins-Popples get the whole Halloween treatment and this year I actually carved my first Pumpkin and my second too!
Next year I may even work out what to do with the contents of the pumpkin, other than throw it out – anyone have any good recipes?
