When we were younger, Halloween didn’t amount to much at all. Although its origins are in Irish folklore, it’s only the relatively recent influences from the USA that have made it what it is today. It’s big business now, with costumes (seemingly for adults as well as kids) and all manner of mostly plastic ‘stuff’ for decoration. This is my daughter’s house today!
Although we have a couple of ‘plastic pumpkins’, today was all about carving the genuine article… The two pumpkins we had were fairly small, so a simple face design seemed in order, and they turned out ok.
Every year we go to the Halloween/Bonfire Night event at the local High School, and for once, it stayed dry tonight. I am staggered at the quality of photos from the iPhone 11Pro, especially in low light.
OK, it’s another 10 days until Halloween, but with two grandchildren to amuse, we decided to decorate the house ready for the 31st… I guess we will carve pumpkins a little nearer the time (stay tuned!) but for now we are using the plastic variety…
