I think these are the cutest skulls I have ever seen and Emi of “small good things” wants to get into Halloween and she is sharing her darling skulls tutorial with us; that you can find here. Emi needs our help, so let’s try to help her out. Emi tells us: “I have a confession to make today – I am a Halloween virgin. No, never experienced ‘Trick or Treat’ (little bit sad, really). I think it’s because we Japanese don’t really celebrate Halloween, and Halloween isn’t such a big deal (or so it seems to me) in Britain. My impression is that British people are more excited about Guy Fawkes Night (5th of November); maybe this might change if Halloween was a Bank Holiday (public holiday)…?
So anyway, for this year’s Halloween, I want to do something special. But as I am a Halloween virgin, I don’t really know where to start. My main concerns are:
What do adults with no kids do on Halloween?
What time would people start Trick or Treating?
What’s the age limit for Trick or Treating – would I, a 31-year-old, get arrested if I try it alone?
How many sweets shall I give per child?
Am I supposed to say something magical when giving sweets to children?
What shall I do when I prepare lots of sweets then no one turn up?
See? This is getting scary. So many things that I have to Google… (or, of course, you could kindly let me know how it actually works). Anyway, today’s skull making is my first small step towards proper Halloween”!
