We always choose a big pumpkin and hollow it out, which I think is a horrible job as it smells disgusting. Still, then you get to have a great time carving it. You can get some great stencils these days and I always trace the face on in pencil first.
A couple of years ago my children really wanted to go trick-or-treating and I must admit that I wasn’t really keen so I lined up a few friends and family that we could call on.
All was going well until we got to my sister’s house. She had decided to dress up too, as a surprise. So when she opened her front door, all the kids saw was this cackling old witch.
Well they screamed, I screamed, my sister screamed because we were screaming and the kids were hysterical and thought the boogeyman had taken their aunty!
