It’s that time of year again, when children pick their favourite costume, everybody stocks up on sweets, and scary stories are told…
Halloween is originally a Celtic custom, originating mostly from Ireland, was then popularized in America, and transformed into a more child friendly event. Over the last few decades, it has become widely celebrated in Europe and thus coming almost full circle.
Today it’s a hugely anticipated event, when the little ones get to dress up, eat their favourite candy and play the odd prank or two. Costumes are available from all the popular animation films, well known fairy tale characters and all the scary creatures that roam the night. Elsa and Anna from Frozen are perfect for two sisters, Spiderman and Superman are always top of the list for boys and Zombies, Skeletons, Mummies, Monsters, Witches and Wizards are ideal for a fright.
Obviously, a pumpkin is also part of the tradition, and these days many farms put on special events, where you can pick and carve a big vegetable. Make sure you bring your wellington boots, rain gear and maybe even a flask with a hot drink. It’s autumn and sure to be cold and muddy. Also consider to provide some protection for your boot space to get it all home without creating too much mess in the car.
A general boot mat, boot protector or an improvised blanket might do for light use and dust. For mud, dirt, damp or wet items and things that might touch the sides of your boot, you need some better protection, such as a custom-made boot liner, individually crafted for your vehicle. That way the entire boot space is covered, and with additional extras, you can also shield the inside of your boot door, the top of your rear seats, the bumper and even the entire loading space with rear seats folded, if an extension is added.

Amongst all the fun, food and frolicking let’s not forget one of the most important aspects of Halloween or any other tradition for that matter: it’s a perfect reason to get together, be it with family, friends or just some acquaintances. It’s a good time to catch up and have a good chat about what has been going on and what the future might bring.
Happy Halloween Everybody!
