It's almost Halloween, and each year I see more and more signs of the holiday in London.
Harrod's has their displays
as does Peter Jones.
A few store fronts are getting in the spirit,
of bats, spiders and ghosts.
I've seen one house decorated--very unusual, maybe Americans are living there.
Krispy Kreme has jumped in with the theme, but the new treat in town is
the Cake Pop.
Knew it couldn't be long before they made their way over the pond from America. Harrod's has the first ones I've seen. Perhaps they would be a special treat for any trick or treaters, even though they are few and far between in my neighborhood. Halloween is really a very new tradition in England, with more and more interest every year. Especially in this decade.
Of course, London would be a great place to celebrate Halloween. You could take the Jack the Ripper walk that we did last week, or go to the Halloween Chocolate Tea at the Hilton on Park Lane. How about a visit to the London Dungeon, the Vampire Arcade at the London Eye, or Boo at the Zoo? X Factor has a Halloween theme this weekend, or you could find all sorts of ghosts at the Tower of London.
Maybe the real Halloween party is at Wembley Stadium where the 49'ers and the Broncos are supplying the thrills as they meet for a little Sunday night Football--American style!
What would you do if you were in London for Halloween?
