It’s that time of year again when the skeletons come out the wardrobes and for one night it’s acceptable to knock on stranger’s doors and take sweets!

Halloween is the pagan New Year, where many will have fantastic craved pumpkins outside their homes inviting children to knock on their door for chocolates and sweets. It’s a magical night of scary fun and if you are one who believes such things, Halloween is the night when the veil between the spirit world and the living world is at its thinnest. The only time of year when ghosts visit the land of the living, while witches communicate with the dead… Spooky!
