Dead man’s guts

We always had a Halloween party and my Mum used to create a scarecrow-like ‘body’ which sat in the porch on bails of hay and all of the kids used to come for the ‘Trick’ of putting their hands inside the body’s shirt to feel the dead mans guts. Unbeknown to everyone it was just a large bag of cold spaghetti but this trick had kids from streets around in absolute terror but always desperate to do it again….years later there are still friends who talk about it.

My mum once dyed a sheet grey wrapped it around herself turned up in a skeleton mask with a £2 scythe and became an instant success as the grim reaper! Her entire costume cost her about a fiver. Until I am too old to pass as a prom queen I will be sticking with my same outfit as every year the dirtier, bloodier, make up stained and worn it becomes the more authentic my look.

On this one night of the year, our fascination for blood, guts and death is completely acceptable.

Happy Halloween & roll on Christmas x
