Christmas...?

I've just had an email stating it's just shy of 100 days until Christmas, that's terrified me as I'm only just getting over my son's birthday this month!

Alongside this random fact, we have halloween first and I have an old favourite for you here, the classic jack-o-lantern or pumpkin available on a t-shirt for those who may just be supporting younger trick or treaters, or doesn't like the idea of dressing up but would still like to do something. 

Originally pumpkins were carved and a candle lit inside on 31st October and 1st November (All Hallows Eve and All Hallows Day) to not just ward away evil spirits, but to remember those who have departed. Some cultures use a swede or other gourd vegetable (also useful if pumpkin is expensive as it gets in the UK as October draws to a close.

However you celebrate, I hope it's a good one for you.
