Scottish Halloween Traditions
When I was wee I never had a pumpkin to carve at Halloween. I did however have a rock hard neep - or turnip - that I spent many hours trying to scoop away at the solid interior for my mum to put in her broth. Many spoons were bent in the process but I always had so much fun making my lantern.
I like to keep the tradition alive and every year carve out a neep....
What are your Halloween Traditions? Do you light a bonfire to ward off evil spirits, or do you dook for apples each year?
I would also love to see your lanterns!!!
