Ah the sound of summer holidays is fast receding. Gone is the happy noise of those school holidays, children racing around wanting constant entertainment and food all day long. Those long promised walks or cycle rides in the country are beginning to settle into a distant memory. So what happens now – we sit through autumn and then the very big events of the year approach. Halloween and Christmas.
The Halloween hysteria that has hit us broadside from the USA is a weird thing, we always used to go out on our legalised begging sortis with a roughly made ‘guy’ trying to raise a few pounds for a nice big family sized box of our favourite fireworks. Gone is all that. We have the Halloween business now which entails a whole lot of new dressing up, and an even brisker round of very business savvy youngsters, egged on parental enthusiasm. Review sites are full of suitable giftware ideas for this feature.
