Changes are inevitable. England doesn’t celebrate Halloween like the Americans do: trick or treating is sporadic and not the norm — not in our little town anyway — and I haven’t seen many decorated houses.
Plus V is apparently now too old to want to go TTing anyway, which is sad(ish). The school has a no-sugar policy so instead of cupcakes kids can bring carrot sticks or hummus for their birthday treat. Yeah. Not that I disagree with this policy on principle, but I just think there’s nothing much special in celebrating occasions with fruit kebabs.
