So October has arrived and with it all the best parts of the year. Halloween, cooler days, changes to the trees, tasty food and all the reasons to snuggle up under a blanket – it’s my favourite month of the year. It also brings pumpkins, many different varieties and types including the traditional Halloween one and one simple question. Can You Eat Halloween Pumpkins?
So, in true Aaron fashion he decides to leave his costume for the Halloween party we are going to until the day before. He decided he wanted to go as a gentleman vampire and had us spend hours walking through town to find the parts he needed. The one thing that took up a lot of time was deciding what kind of vampire teeth he was going to have, we looked at the cheap Poundshop ones and scrolled through Amazon looking for Prime delivered teeth but they were all too expensive or looked like they wouldn’t last – that’s when we decided to make our own.
Halloween if my all time favourite holiday of the year, I often wish that I lived in America just because of how seriously they take it over there. Here I have to settle to taking my son around to a few houses trick or treating and curling up on the sofa with a few films – I did get married on Halloween so sometimes that is replaced by a nice meal out but only if the child has gone to his grandparents. With this in mind I took to The Money Shed Forum to ask it’s members what their all time favourite Halloween family films were – if you pop over to the thread you will also see that a few members have a strange definition of a “family film”.
October, I love everything about it – the colours, the weather, the fact it is Halloween (and my wedding anniversary) and the food! I bought my first Halloween pumpkin last weekend, it was a BEAST for £3 from Sainsbury’s and it was worth every penny. The poor Halloween pumpkin is often wasted once it hits the shops with most people only using it to carve and leave out on the 31st. There are so many wonderful things you can do with this bright orange beauty!
