"As a child, I felt that Halloween was a time when creatures of the night suddenly came to life. We would turn off all the lights in the house and let flickering candlelight conjure up scary shadows and imaginary figures lurking in dark corners. Nowadays, I frequently celebrate Halloween over a supper with friends. It's a wonderful excuse to let your imagination run riot with gory-looking food and special effects." Royal wedding bridesmaid Pippa Middleton on her family's Halloween traditions.
