This is Halloween
Pumpkins are carved, the candles are flickering and the mini jack o'lantern lights are aglow on the mantelpiece. Vintage items collected over the years are lined up on the shelves and a menacing grin twinkles.
Pumpkin spice in the air and a glimmer of spookiness. Sweeties are in the orange bowl, waiting for little folk to trick or treat. For me it will be a pumpkin stew bubbling away and some tales of spectres that roam dark lanes, Halloween music of Danse Macabre and the Boogie Woogie Man and dreams of witches flying by.
