Halloween is coming. That time of year that seems to polarise more opinions than any other festival . Ghosties, ghoulies and things that go bump in the night. And trick or treating. So BritMums are asking the question for their video blogging challenge this week – do you like or loathe Halloween? This is a subject that the geekdaddy and I have very differing views on, and I don’t think we’ve yet resolved how we’re going to handle this as the kids grow older. So I thought you might find it interesting to hear us discuss how we feel about Halloween…

There is a postscript to this video. Seeing as how I’ve now told you all about how much I hate Halloween, you really won’t miss the irony of the parcel I’ve received from Asda this week. When they asked me if I’d like to test their Halloween cake, I couldn’t say no. It’s one of those unspoken rules of blogging – there must be cake! However, what was delivered was not just cake, but what looks like an entire Halloween party in a box! So of course the geekdaddy has decided that we must have a Halloween party in order to test everything thoroughly. I have a feeling I may hate Halloween parties as much as I hate birthday parties… I’ll certainly report back and let you know how we got on with everything.
