The arrival of October also means Halloween is just around the corner. For most, Halloween is a night for dressing up, telling ghost stories, having spooky parties, trick-or-treating and pumpkin carving. What most people don’t know is that Halloween is actually based on an ancient Celtic holiday known as Samhain (pronounced "sow wan"), which means "summer's end". Pumpkin carving is fast-becoming a sport in itself, not to mention the delicious autumnal recipes you can make with them, with designers from all over the world trying their hand at the best most creative, scariest, spookiest, most elaborate designs. To get the best selection of pumpkins head down to your local pumpkin patch or pumpkin picking farm. These have the freshest pumpkins for you to choose from and, what’s more, they come in all shapes and sizes! You will have a field day choosing the best for your creations.
