Halloween. The one day of the year when, legend has it, the dead can
rise from their slumber to harangue the living for chocs and sweeties. If I was
'the dead', I'd think about drig a Ferrari, or spending an evening with a
supermodel, but I suppose one night doesn't provide a lot of time for planning,
so running around begging strangers is the best they can manage. Ho hum. For the
rest of us, thewhole thing is a great excuse to get really drunk, which can't be
a bad thing.
Pumpkins were traditionally carved into 'Jack-O-Lanterns' to ward off evil
spirits. It's also pretty gratifying takingkitchen knife to the orange lump. I
mean the pumpkin of course. Not Dale Winton.
