10 Great Halloween costume and decoration websites.
“Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn, and caldron bubble
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake
Eye of newt, and toe of frog
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog…..”
This abridged version of the ever so famous quotation from Shakespeare’s Macbeth has been adapted somewhat over the years. Doesn’t it really conjure up an image of a witch stirring up spells at her bubbling cauldron?
We are always amazed when annual feast days are already approaching – Halloween does arrive at the same time every year but yet exclamations of “Can you believe it’s almost Halloween?” can be heard everywhere. There is far more fuss made around Halloween now than there was when I was a kid, but that is no bad thing. It’s really good fun for kids…and adults too!
