Look, I know, I talk about Wales a lot but that's because
a) I'm Welsh,
b) this is one of the most beautiful and magical places on the planet,
c) you guys seem to know very little about my lovely country/principality, and
d) WE ARE NOT ENGLISH AND I WANT THE WORLD TO UNDERSTAND THAT.
So, humour me a little more, and let me tell you about Welsh Halloween traditions. Most of which, unfortunately, are now passed over in favour of trick or treating and parties.
I never went trick or treating, but that's because my parents are socialist hippies who viewed it as a disrespectful form of begging.
And I'm vegetarian and most of the sweets were made with gelatine.
(I did go trick or treating with two of my mates as a teenager - I told my parents we were just having a party at one girl's house. I'm such a rebel, lol.)
The Welsh version of Halloween is Nos Galan Gaeaf (not to be confused with Nos Galan - New Year's Eve.)
Some stories say that the future was revealed by whatever ghostly image appeared by a person's clothing - a crib, for example, meaning the person would have a child soon.
The spookier stories tell of coffins appearing above a person's clothing, and death soon after.
Then there's the rocks, placed in a fire, with the names of the people in the household written on them.
