I hate Halloween...

...because it is a horrible American concept that I really can't stand. BUT, after a lot of pleading from my daughter I agreed to make a Halloween cake. So, here on RIBnet is the first public unveiling of the second cake I have ever made/decorated.




Everything is just an engineering challenge!

It's not American, it's actually mostly a Celtic festival with a light veneer of Christianity smeared on it to take the rough look off it.

What makes you think that?

Hallow'een is a Scots word, and the "festival" is a 'Christianisation' of Celtic / Pagan festivals before it.

EDIT - Willk types quicker than me!

Guising was recorded in Scotland in Victorian times...

Oh yes - it's totally revolting, so 10 points I suppose.

I should have said but I was just so, well, affronted! American! WTF!? It's maybe just possible to mention that the great festivals of the modern year, Christmas, Easter and Halloween were pinched from the Celts.

Those lads knew how to party

See, when you put it like that...
