As a family we thoroughly enjoy Halloween. We don’t go trick or treating however still enjoy our own spooky fun! Every year so far and this year looks set to be the same Roy takes Kieran (now 9yrs) up to his grandparents who do Halloween in a big (and rather frightening!) way.
Taylor stays at home with me and usually my youngest sister Lauren and we man the door and take care of the Trick or Treat-ers! Of course the house must be decorated top to bottom, you must have a proper costume if you answer the door or go to someone else’s house and spider webs and pumpkins are not optional.
When the lovelies at Aldi asked if I’d like to have a look at some of their Halloween range I thought why not? We were sent this bundle (free of charge) which included a spooky bucket (perfect for offering treats to door knockers), fabulously fun glasses and this seriously freaky door bell. I was home alone when the parcel arrived and pressed the button (not having read the packaging properly) and threw the thing across the carpet when it boomed out its rather frightening welcome; the kids will love it! Everything that was sent is sturdy and well made, despite being ridiculously cheap to buy!
I’m something of a fan of Aldi, visiting it when I can and was thrilled recently to hear that we’ll be getting one here in Thirsk shortly (I heard a rumour that it’ll be by Xmas but we’ll see). If their Halloween fare is as good as this as and cheap as this I sincerely hope it does open in time for Christmas decorating!
If you are looking for costumes, decorations and accessories for Halloween get yourself down to Aldi and enjoy their seasonal special buy range (see more here).
Have a great Halloween!
