I've never been a big Halloween fan, always chalking it up to consumerism gone mad. But this year, as I roamed the brightly decorated streets of our neighbourhood with my little boy all dressed up, listening to the shouts and cries of excited children all around me proudly showing off their painstakingly crafted costumes, I could literally feel my soul being touched by something quite profound. I can only assume that it was community spirit - these days, it can be a very hard thing to find, let alone recognise! Is it such a bad thing I wonder, to bribe little children with sweets to talk to their neighbours?
And look... it's not everyday you get to see two giant rabbits holding hands in your street!
