Scary Skeletons & Sparkly Nights
October and November are the months to celebrate Halloween and Bonfire Night, so make them a night to remember
Halloween and Bonfire Night get bigger and better every year. Gone are the days when it was just apple bobbing or a few sparklers in the back garden, today, people really go to town with their Halloween costumes, dressing in everything from witches and ghosts to devils and monsters, not to mention the make-up which looks like something out of a horror movie.
Houses are decorated with cobwebs and skeletons, there are parties galore and eyeball soup and pumpkin pie are on the menu, while children fill their buckets with sweets as they trick or treat.
Organised bonfire displays have become the place to go. An evening with all the family, eating treacle toffee, candy floss and toffee apples is how I remember it. Wellies and warm jackets always at the ready in case we couldn’t get near the large fire for warmth. Usually there’s a chance to enjoy a few Fair games before watching the big firework display. Amazing colours, amazing sounds and a great atmosphere.
Check out some of the bonfire displays around the area. And don’t forget, if you’re out and about on Halloween or Bonfire Night, stay safe.
