Well, I did this Prompt this time last year so you can read that here. I haven’t changed my mind so…
…now for something completely different.
The best Halloween I had was a few years ago when I was just starting to date Mary and through connections she had from working for English Heritage she’d wangled us a few tickets for the Halloween gig at Blist’s Hill Victorian Town. This was a treat for me as I have always had a thing for Victoriana/Edwardiana and Steampunk. We both dressed up, her as a sort of Medieval Witch and myself being a little more period, went as Jack the Ripper. The old shops and stalls were done up with cobweb and coloured light effects to give a spookier air to the place. The staff were made up into various ghosts and ghoulish and there were a variety of period parlour games to keep the kids amused.
One of the highlights of the evening was the firework display over the canal set to a recording of “Dry Bones”. Afterwards we went to the nearby All Nations Homebrew Pub and not a single eyebrow was raised at our costumes. Afterwards we went back to my place a cup of tea and a small bite to eat. Alas since the departure of Mary, Halloween has become an affair I usually end up working through.
