I spent £1 on a pumpkin, that was all
Mine was also a £1 from Lidl.
£1.49 so far! Sweets for those knocking on the door, recycled the outfits....no pumpkin this year! :) x
Sounds good to me.
I must admit I have spent more on sweets this year because I ran out last year. For trick or treat callers, not us you understand!Lisa x
We always end up eating all ours, no one ever knocks but we get a few sweets in just in case. There are streets around here that are inundated with callers, sounds like yours might be one too.
Very effective and guessing you didn't take out a mini mortgage xx
Exactly, bought the party items when reduced last year, and baked our own scary cakes.
It's interesting isn't it, how much people have taken on the festivity. I think we must have spent about £3 on sweets and they all went. We get loads of children (and their parents) knocking on the door and to be honest I love to see them so excited, pleased also that I'm not one of those responsible for putting them to bed.
It must be its Celtic origin, which I fully support. It is just the rampant consumerism that bothers me. I am sure we could keep it within limits and still enjoy it. You are lucky to have visitors, we were prepared and hoping for some last night but to no avail.
Great looking pumpkin.
Love your pumpkin! Ours was a freebie but we did spend a fiver on a little top for Joe. He'll have to wear it til next year!
Halloween this year consisted of Ruy and Romy carving lanterns from two 'almost' pumpkins - squashes from the same family but a slightly different shape and colour - that we had grown in our garden. I brought them a tin of sweets each from the supermarket after I'd been teaching....2 euros. But here the shops were full of costumes and it's so NOT a Spanish tradition! Shame but I love pumpkin lanterns...and we enjoyed a pumpkin pie!Axxx
Seriously?! That's shocking! Other than buying chocolate buttons for my spider biscuits I don't think I've spent anything!
