When I was younger my family really got into Halloween and we had great parties with fun games and bad taste cake and fancy dress. Living on a farm for a while meant that trick or treating wasn't a happening thing. Here it's big, not USA-dress-your-pug-as-a-superhero-big but definitely popular. I decorated the house with a giant spider and web (some real, some fake) and a proper Jack-o-lantern. Scooping out the seeds was disgusting.
I made witches fingers from Lorraine's blog (Lorraine is like the queen of halloween) and a costume for S. We had quite a few trick or treaters who liked our treats and spider but were unsure about the devilled egg (the parents liked it).
