I've always loved Halloween - the fabulous costumes, kitschy decorations, wonderful festive celebrations, the chocolate - what's not to love!
I especially adore the extra-creative handmade costumes (and, all modesty aside) I must admit I've won a few costume contests with my own hand made creations!
When I was a kid, I loved trick-or-treating, and in my town, so many people went over the top to welcome the trick-or-treaters - with costumed hosts, cider and donuts, spooky tunes and wild mazes to work your way through and earn your treats!
I don't get many trick-or-treaters, but I have pulled out my witches hat and cape, and have a bag of sweets and some little pumpkin badges ready for the little ones! Can't wait!
