I’m not big on the actual event. Trick or treating. Candy. Dealing with the door.
But I adore the month-long preparations.
The colours. The crafts. The googly-eyed desserts.
The rhyming, creativity-packed picture books. The manic costume creation.
Two years ago today, as I prepared for those long-awaited test-results, we splurged on Hallowe’en. Filling our craft-store basket, despite the expense.
I thought it was my last Hallowe’en.
Lucky, lucky me.
