Halloween is pretty much a big deal for all Londoners when it comes to parties, costumes and decorations. that is why it is important to be prepared for it.
1. first of all buy a pumpkin. you can get really cheap ones at ‘Tesco’. after all, you can use it after the 31st and make with it delicious pumpkin soup which will warm you up on cold autumn evening (the recipe for it will be presented later this month).
2. second, find a costume. be creative. being a vampire or a witch is a bit passe, especially in a city in which everyday you can see someone dressed ‘uncommonly’.
3. buy a loooot of sweets. and i don’t only mean here, buying them for kids that might knock on your door, but also for you! believe me, they taste so much better on that day and bring childhood memories
4. find a party to which you can go. don’t stay in. it is one of these days in London when you should go out. explore the city, see all the costumes in which people put so much effort
5. watch a scary film. especially when as this year Halloween is on thursday so you have whole three days to watch one
