Happy Halloween!

I ran into a Scottish friend yesterday and she told me that pumpkin carving has reached Scotland. Until now, apparently, people there have been carving turnips.

“Turnips?” I said.

“Yes. It’s really hard to get your spoon in, though. They take days to hollow out.”

I thought she must be joking, but Google says: turnips. And check out this traditional Irish jack-o’-lantern from Wikipedia. Yikes!

On a less scary note, here are my three favourite costumes of the year. These have been making their internet rounds.

I tried to convince my sister and brother-in-law (both RCMP) to choose this one for their new baby, but no luck:

And this has got to be the year’s best:

Happy trick-or-treating tonight!
