If anyone asks me what my favourite season is, without hesitation, I will answer Autumn. Everything about Autumn makes me happy. When I saw Jordanne, created the “Hallotober Tag” which is themed around the autumn season and Halloween. From the moment I saw the rag on twitter, I knew that I wanted to take part.

I want to take a minute to thank Jordanne for creating the tag and for the lovely Katie, for tagging me.
What’s your favourite thing about October?
My favourite thing about October has to be the colours. I absolutely love to see the leaves change from green, to orange and yellow. Seeing them fall on to the ground. I love Pumpkin Spice Latte’s, cosy jumpers, the cooler weather and warming homemade soup.
Are you a big celebrator of Halloween?
Halloween hasn’t been a big deal for me. In Scotland its not really been as popular as it is in the States. When I was younger, I would dress up with friends and go to school discos, I don’t even think I went trick or treat (we call it guising). Now that Alex our son is getting older, he is showing some interest in halloween, so in future it might become more of a bigger deal.
What’s your favourite horror movie?
When it comes to horror movies, I’m not a fan of blood and gore, I can’t stomach anything like the Saw films, I do like watching zombie films though. I particularly like the resident evil franchise of films as well as 28 Days Later.
Would you rather a cosy night in watching horrors or a big night out in a costume?
Cosy night in, every time. Big nights out aren’t my thing anymore. I’m not even sure they really were my thing. There’s nothing better than being at home in your comfy clothes and being able to get to bed at a decent time. Also, there is the added bonus of no hangover the following morning.
Which has been your most favourite costume to date?
I haven’t dressed up that much for Halloween, one year I was out with friends who made me a sign to say that it was my birthday and to buy me a drink. I think I also had devil horns and maybe a devil tail.
Bobbing for apples or pin the hat on the witch?
Bobbing for apples. Although we used to cheat and drop a fork into the bucket of apples, rather than dunk our heads. Adds a little bit more of a challenge, but also means you don’t have to put your head into the water.
How do you celebrate Halloween?
Normally we turn the lights out and pretend no-one is home. This year, however, we are planning on decorating the house a little and watch some family-friendly spooky movies like Hocus Pocus and maybe Casper.
What’s your least favourite horror?
Any of the nightmare of Elm street films. Freddie Kruger scares the heck out of me. I remember watching Nightmare on Elm Street 3 – Dream Warriors when I was younger and having nightmares afterwards.
Do you have a favourite trick or treating memory?
No, not really. As I said we never went trick or treating as kids.
What’s your favourite thing about Halloween?
Seeing my son get excited about dressing up and having fun with his friends, although that’s not likely to happen this year. We are determined to make the best of Halloween in lockdown.
Scary costume or Silly costume?
Oh this is a tough choice, probably scary. I’ve seen some really cool halloween makeup on youtube that I would have love to attempt to recreate.
What’s your favourite Halloween candy?
I don’t really have a preference. Probably something fizzy like Haribo Starmix.
What are you most looking forward to this October?
Going away for a week during the school holidays. With 2020 being such as strange year, the chance to get away from what our normal day to day life has turned into is one thing I am really looking forward to. Also getting ready for our sons 5th birthday at the beginning of November.
