Did I ever tell you about our little outing right outside our door steeps yet?
No? Well, we’ve hadn’t been Trick or Treating in our neighbourhood before, as we’ve seem to have celebrated this occasions with friends in other areas near us or afar. The year before we went to Hackney, London, and the year before that was in Hitchin but it was not outside our doorstep, and the year before that was in Stotford, Bedfordshire.
I think I’d like to do this tradition every year – wherever it may be. I’d like to explore other areas/ towns if possible. It is rather exciting not just for the kids but also for me too! I do have a little kid inside me – always. 😉
This year, we have the accompanied of the Mountain Warehouse wind up lantern to help us see in the pitch dark night. It is also act as a precaution for our littles for other people to see them if they do rushed off crossing the road. Trick or Treat can be exciting but some safety precautions is also a must. Evelyn insisted she would take charge of this patrol.
This lantern is so handy as it doesn’t use any batteries non of any sort. All you need to do to get it working is wind it up to install the energy inside it and switch the lantern on when needed. And when it runs out you just need to wind it up again. Clever isn’t it?!
We discovered some lovely Halloween decorations outside people’s front door. I was so impressed by it all. People are so friendly and really did put an effort into this festivity and it really does put up the spirt of it all! (No pun intended.)
There was also a man who wore the phantom of the opera custom and opened his window and give sweeties out when kids come around. When the went away, he played the most beautiful phantom of the opera music on his piano too! Wow!
People chatted with him and ask where he came from as he did had an accent. He said he is from California and his wife is from Greece. They both works in London. Then one of us shouted: “And you end up in Sunny Hitchin!” Haha
It was a great evening.
