I don't think we do halloween in the UK like you do in the US. It's basically kids (under 10 years old) dressed up a witches and ghosts. That's kind of it. We might also carve a pumpkin, although this is a new idea, when I was young we just carved a swede (!).
So I would love to know your thoughts on what you have made in the past for halloween and what we could be aiming at for the upcoming challenge..........
Tee hee! I knew I'd get you with that one Judy: it is a long running children's tv programme on the BBC (British tv channel) that has been on since the 50s I think. It is famous for a bit of the show where they would make something out of old yogurt pots and so on (usually a present for mother's day or something like a pen pot for father's desk!) - so what I was saying to Diane was that she was making something using bits and pieces from the house.... there isn't a British person who doesn't know Blue Peter!
Glad you are chuffed... I'm off to my stool of do nothing with a cuppa now xx
A couple of years ago my daughter's school had a Harry Potter day followed by a disco/party in the evening. For day wear I made her a scholar's gown with wand pocket & a tie because her dad doesn't own any stripy ones.
By the way I have actually made a pumkin pie, the receipe I used came out almost the same as mincemeat! which we thoroughly enjoyed.
These costumes are great!
I love pumpkin pie, roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin soup! And of course a carved jack-o-lantern!
I love halloween, but never was invited to a halloween party in college...this is the first year since high school that I've got somewhere to go! Most 20-30 somethings in the US go out to bars, because they have special deals if you're dressed up or go to parties, if you're a bit more nerdy.
The one I'm going to is HP themed, so I didn't even really have to decide what to make, the decision was made for me!
