I'm very please to see that I am not the only one who knows that today/tomorrow is Samhain, Jonno. For those that don't know - it's the day that is half way between the equinox and the winter solstice. It marks the end of the harvest season and the start of the winter season, plus the Celtic New Year. Like all the pre-Christian solar dates on the calender it was hijacked by the early Christians and renamed. Nice pumpins BTW.So as tomorrow is Samhain (pronounced Sow, as in female pig "Sow-een") or halloween to most, we've been up late carving pumpkins for our sprog and the other little turds on the estate when they come to beg for sugar tomorrow evening.
Any of yous done any?

You might have the odd brown snake or two visiting your door begging for hand outs Alan‘All Hallows Eve’… That’s amazing work with those pumpkins! Hope they serve to ward off the evil of those little turds from the estate…
Great you’re putting just a little bit of magic into their lives and memories to last them a lifetime.
Not expecting any trick or treat nippers here. If they want to reach our house tonight they would had have to have started walking up the drive before lunch time…
So we’re not expecting any ghostly shenanigans round here tonight. But there may be a black wolf howling from this hilltop after sunset!
Have a magical evening all -especially the kiddies..
Like I’ve hinted once or twice in the past, if they’re brave enough to cope with walking up a long un-lit drive through the dark, dark wood with weird noises in the undergrowth and spooky shadows then they’re probably brave enough to cope with being told to piss off.
