We have a guest blogger today, Ellie. Who better to give you an account of Halloween here in England. And just for the record, I did no editing whatsoever on this. The commentary on the pictures is mine, but what is directly below are all Ellie’s words.
Hello it is Ellie and I am going to tell you about Halloween in England. It was quite nice on Halloween in England. It was a bit cloudy with a high of 60. Leah was Anna from Frozen ( she got an Anna dress for her birthday) and I was a gypsy. We gave out candy for awhile ( mum saying the children that came were so cute with their costumes and English voices ). Then we went trick-or-treating! It was a lot of fun. They have different candy like Mars bars, Haribo gummies (I got an egg shaped gummy), Twix, Snickers, Butterscotch and more. There are not many people in our village who do Halloween so we didn’t get much candy. But we only got a couple of the same thing. I say there was such a wide variety of sweets. When we got home we had dinner. Then we watched It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. It was a great night! Happy Halloween!
