Richard: Hallowe'en is on October 31 st and it's very popular in Britain.
Jackie: Yes. It's all about spooky things: ghosts and witches and bats and things. The children love it, especially.
Richard: Not just the kids though. But er .. . what traditional things do we do for Hallowe'en then, Jackie?
Jackie: Well, we make pumpkin lanterns.
Richard: Yes, but in the past in Britain I remember making lanterns from turnips. That was very hard, they're very hard inside.
Jackie: Yeah that's true you can make ... you can make great turnip lanterns but yeah now we have pumpkins from the US which are bigger and easier to make into lanterns. They look great and they keep the ghosts and the witches away.
Richard: [laughs] I'm sure they do, yes. Dressing up is also very popular. Er ... people of all ages wear fancy dress, don't they?
Jackie: Yes, that's true. You can dress up as a witch ...
Richard: ... or a skeleton ...
Jackie: ... a vampire ...
Richard: I've also seen lots of spiders, strangely enough.
Jackie: Yes and you can dress up as a ghost. I think a ghost is the easiest to make.
Richard: Yes, you just need a sheet, don't you? And also popular is er .. . a zombie, I think.
Jackie: Then, in your fancy dress, it's party time. Hallowe'en parties are forchildren and adults. It's a fun family time.
Richard: Yes but it's not just about spooky stuff though as well, is it? I also remember a popular game: apple bobbing. So to play this game, lots of apples are placed into a large bowl of water and you have to take a bite from one of the apples without using your hands.
Jackie: You get very, very wet trying, but it's very traditional.
Richard: It is very traditional. They've been doing that for years.
Jackie: There's usually lots of fun spooky food too, isn't there? Food ... food that looks like spiders ...
Richard: . . . and ghosts, things like that, yes.
Jackie: But Richard what do we do on Hallowe'en night?
Richard: [laughs] Not much. We stay inside and watch a spooky movie.
