There are but a few scattered reminders that Halloween is due at the end of the month. The White Horse, now called The Varsity had strands of angel hair stuck to its windows in an attempt to mimic cobwebs and I’ve seen a few domestic dwellings’ windows with rubber spiderwebs and little skeletons fixed to the glass, oh and Starbucks are advertising their ‘Vegan Pumpkin Latte’ but that is it so far. Perhaps people are feeling too jaded by the threat of another lock down to enter fully into the spirit of it. One positive must be the lessening of the possibility of trick-or-treating, for what parents would let their children knock on strangers’ doors at the moment?
