One of my best jobs is to meet readers and writers from all over the world who have actually read Mom. Great, isn’t it? Let me introduce you to Jane, a great writer, mother and superaunt who lives in my beloved England (I know, I’ve never been, but only one person can dream.) She is also a technician, a food and crafts writer, and has good ideas to share. Because my idea for Halloween means using a sharp pumpkin (anyway, okay?), Jane has a better input in this field. Jane is here today to tell us how Halloween is celebrated on the pond. Enjoy it! At that moment, your children were better than yours. It’s better to carve a pumpkin. It’s fun to see your child so focused on something. We saw Lily like art, so my husband and I had our dear daughter carve some pumpkins with us last year. This year, I stood by to support her love of everything. I did have some of Jack O’s lantern ideas, and I tortured myself by looking at other cool and lovely pumpkin sculptures and showing them to the kids. If only I could do it myself and let them out. Typical English Halloween.
In most cases, Halloween celebrations are almost the same as elsewhere. You will see the left, right, middle, left, right, middle of the costume party; pumpkin chips; free horror movies for the community; of course, the children are playing magic or therapy. After my daughter and I did some research, I discovered an interesting tip-“trick-or-treat.” Tradition originated in England! Don’t ask me how I don’t know. After all, history is not my strength. A blog I follow posted some Halloween craftsmanship and shared some information about the origins of “trick or treat”. Apparently, hundreds of years ago in Scotland, people knocked at the door this season asking for free food. Or other value. Eventually, practice evolved into what our children like to do today, on every Halloween celebration. However, what may be more unique here is that we have a ‘prank night’ celebration in which people prank each other. It’s interesting, but obviously, you shouldn’t overdo it, just in case. Be hurt.
People gather by the campfire, and it is common to share terrible stories. You know the show, “are you afraid of the dark?” Subtract the magic powder to make the fire bigger. Hello, pumpkin? Back in the pumpkin, I’m sure the only part I can beat lily is to make pumpkin soup or pie and get out. Not that this is her job, but that you have to make me occasionally say “I rule!” My husband is good at making epic decorations and costumes, lilies make great Jack O lanterns, and I, uh, you have to give me something, right? This year I have ‘Pumpkin’ and ‘Pumpkin’. In my eyes, caramel cake, as long as you wait, your soul will sing from the goodness of my delicacy. But, to be honest, the best thing for me is that we complement each other. This makes the celebration even more special. Watching your loved ones work together, it’s always priceless when we get together and see their happy faces. Will cherish every day of my life. I believe this is the most important thing. It’s not about decorations, clothes or gifts. It’s not about the party. It’s about your bond with your family on every occasion to celebrate. Happy Hlloween!
