Halloween.....and Manolis :-)
Firstly Happy Halloween to those that do celebrate it :-)
We don't celebrate Halloween at all. Dj's never been particularly interested in it so we've managed to avoid making anything of it.
When he was younger he found it all too scary (Scooby Doo could scare him when he was little, so he had no tolerance level for ghosts, vampires and ghouls)
He does always have a pumpkin..... (to keep away the witches which he "knows do not really exist however, just to be on the safe side")...... and below, this is Dj's pumpkin this year.
He's lethal with a knife though and had to keep reminding him it's a knife not a spear!
He used to be afraid of using a sharp knife (blood phobia) but this year managed to cut the whole pumpkin out himself - without losing an arm...cool eh :-)
