Happy Halloween! I hope you have a lovely and safe Hallowtide.
This year, things are so very different, aren’t they? Here, where we are, our local townhall has had to ban trick or treating in our village and instead give out wrapped sweets in sealed bags to local children who dress up and attend the town hall at a set time (with special measures). They’ve also had to publish rules for visiting the cemetery, which is traditional at Hallowtide here in Spain. Things may be different, but it doesn’t stop people marking this special time of year, thankfully.
Here are some Halloween resources for you to enjoy and learn more about this time of year in the medieval and Tudor periods…
And how about a Boleyn-related ghost story?
