Hello and welcome to the Hallotober Tag! This is a new tag covering the amazingness that is Halloween and October. It’s the brainchild of the lovely Jordanne, who is a mother, film-maker and amazing blogger. She blogs at The Life of a Glasgow Girl and has a great range of posts, also check her out on twitter and insta. I’m so grateful to Jordanne for nominating me and the support she’s shown (especially given how very new I am!). The arrival of autumn is a fantastic time of year and the questions are geared around Halloween. First I’ll explain the rules, then present the questions and my answers, finally I’ll nominate other bloggers as the next victims mwah ha ha ha ha…!

☠️ Q & A ☠️
What’s your favourite thing about October?
The colours! Love those crisp and sunny autumn days with walks in woodland when the leaves are changing colour and there are pumpkins and gourds everywhere. I’m a sucker for finding acorns, sycamore helicopters and conkers.
Are you a big celebrator of Halloween?
I like Halloween a lot, even though it’s really commercialised I like fancy dress parties with my friends, watching scary films and enjoying silly Halloween-themed food and drinks.
What’s your favourite horror movie?
The Omen. I love psychologically scary films, I’m not into slashers as gore tends to bore me, probably why I like Get Out too.
Would you rather a cosy night in watching horrors or a big night out in a costume?
I love a costume party!
Which has been your most favourite costume to date?
I’ve had a few but the most recent would’ve been ‘Pride, Prejudice and Zombies’
Bobbing for apples or pin the hat on the witch?
Normally apple bobbing but given the covid situation it’ll be pin the hat on the witch this year.
How do you celebrate Halloween?
Either a halloween movie night with Halloween decorations and themed cocktails, or a fancy-dress house party.
What’s your least favourite horror?
Cabin in the Woods. I found some of it funny but because I’m not into slasher films most of the references were lost on me.
Do you have a favourite trick or treating memory?
I was one of three pairs of siblings in my street who would trick or treat at each other’s homes. My favourite memory was getting ready into our costumes and later my friend’s Mum not recognising her own child, we laughed about for weeks afterwards.
What’s your favourite thing about Halloween?
The decorations! Love seeing pumpkins in people’s windows and gardens, and the decorations in shops.
Scary costume or Silly costume?
I prefer scary, but that’s probably because I manage a silly outfit by accident (attempts at being trendy!) at least twice a year.
What’s your favourite Halloween candy?
Ghost decorations or skeleton decorations?
Both! But if I must pick then skeletons because I love anatomy.
