Bloody Halloween

(Before It's News)

Holiday WiFi too slow for anything substantial but this one burst through somehow. While on holiday we visited Knightshayes, a house which has interested us for a while because of its Victorian Gothic-Revival interior.

On arrival we found that for some reason most of the ground floor was festooned with those huge theatrical cobwebs seen in Hammer Horror films. Furniture, mantelpieces, light fittings, all were treated to the seasonal Halloween look with lots of other additional bits and pieces of a ghoulish nature. Victorian Gothic interior somewhat spoiled. Upstairs inaccessible too for some reason. Maybe a National Trust loon was busy spraying more fake cobwebs all over the bedrooms.

Fortunately we are NT members and hadn't actually paid for this infantile farce, but what is it with Halloween? Are we reverting in some way? As an fake commercial festivity it has become even more odious than Christmas.

Okay – back to the holiday. Which is rather enjoyable so please forgive the outburst. It just had to come out.
