Halloween Night...

A time for the KIDDIES to go out and guise...
My daughter's favourite holiday (Would you believe it?) but in my mind a time for little ones, not adults to celebrate...(yes, I am a party pooper! Sorry!)

A good evening to read Robert Burns' poem 'Halloween' though...

Upon that night, when fairies light
On Cassilis Downans dance,
Or owre the lays, in splendid blaze,
On sprightly coursers prance;
Or for Colean the route is ta'en,
Beneath the moon's pale beams;
There, up the cove, to stray and rove,
Among the rocks and streams
To sport that night.

(read the whole poem HERE)

Happy Homemaker In the UK Laura is an American currently living overseas who shares a very good understanding of Halloween's beliefs across the pond (see HERE).
Laura's photographs are often stunning so be sure to check out her other posts!

Finally did you know...

Folks in England and Ireland used to carve outs beets, potatoes and turnips for lanterns on All Hallow's Eve... 


 Rain tonight (yet again) for little ones to go trick or treat...Be safe!
