Halloween, in its current form, is primarily a North American tradition. Its roots, however, spring from the old Celtic traditions of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. But the English don't really observe Halloween with the same vigour as North Americans, who revel in Trick-or-Treating and spooky decorations. I mean, after all, they have Guy Fawkes' Night and bonfires to see to!
Nonetheless, our recent trip to England was just at the very end of summer and so for me, I was already beginning to dream about the glorious colours of Fall leaves and ... Halloween. I think some of the pictures I took show that I definitely had "Halloween on the Brain" and show my strong fascination with anything slightly macabre or gothic - things that are ever present in wonderful, magical England!
