Of the two, I am most certainly a bonfire night girl over Halloween. Every year it is a freezing cold night and a good excuse to wrap up warm, wear a million pairs of socks and is the first REAL outing of hat, scarf and gloves for the winter (although I’ve actually been wearing them for several weeks in chilly Scotland…). This evening Aberdeen put on a particularly good display, made even better by a Starbucks in a red cup and good company.

If you look very closely you might see we are ALL wearing a Fat Face scarf…can you guess where we work?!

The photos are just from my phone, so not the best, but imagine a chilly breeze, the smell of candy floss mixed with sparklers and a bang from the sky that goes right through you…

Remember, Remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
