Wrap up warm for Bonfire Night

Lisbeth Dahl Grey Knitted Scarf

I was in a pound shop at the weekend (yes, I’m very glamorous) and I was amazed at the array of Halloween items for sale. Costumes, fairy lights, garden ornaments – there was practically an entire aisle. My 6-year-old got very excited. I did not.

For me, this time of year is all about Bonfire Night. I’m pretty grumpy about fireworks – I’ve read too many stories of the injuries they’ve caused to completely relax about them – but I love a bonfire. Wrapping up in a scarf, hat and gloves. Eating just-baked potatoes straight from the foil. Seeing people’s faces lit up by the firelight. Just the thought of the crackling and flickering makes me feel a bit giddy.

What about you? Are you happy about Halloween or bonkers about Bonfire Night? (Sorry.) Tell us in the comments.
