I hope everyone had a happy (and scary!) Halloween. My husband, kids and I had a great time trick-or-treating, along with my sister-in-law and her children.
We carved our Jack O’Lantern, roasted our pumpkin seeds and then gorged ourselves on Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and Mars Bars!
…this was in England, where nobody gave you sweets on Hallowe’en when I was a lad. Mostly, as I remember, they just locked themselves indoors and shivered.
Wow! That’s different than what I’ve read, where the British Halloween is described as very similar to the American.
Can anyone who grew up in Britain shed some light? Did you spend Halloween terrified indoors, like Gaiman? Is he serious or just kidding around? Comment below to let me know!
