This is another Halloween related post, but it is also a little piece of news of some importance: I bought the pumpkin last Monday. I am quite happy and it is quite a big pumpkin. Not as big as the ones I used to buy in Montreal, but for one purchased here in the UK it is massive. So I will make a nice Jack O'Lantern, I am thinking about the design already. I want it to strike terror. And I need more decorations for the flat, even though I will probably be the only one enjoying them.
This is my only regret about almost every Halloween spent here: I do not receive trick or treaters, because I am living on top of a block. Trick or treating has a bad reputation here, undeserved I think (you can read an interesting thread about this on Digitalspy). As I blogged before, it is an act of sharing and of trust between neighbours, it brings people and communities together, it can even create friendship. I love Halloween also for this, because it creates bonds the time of an evening. But I digress. These evenings, I look at the pumpkin in the kitchen and I feel inspired.
