Blogtober // Halloween and Autumn Traditions

So I was thinking of saying something about how much I love autumn here… but I imagine you guys have already gathered that from our posts so far this month. Anyway, autumn definitely comes with its own traditions, so I thought I’d share a few of mine!

A trip to the pumpkin patch

For the past few years, Jordan and I have visited a pumpkin patch just before Halloween – we go to Farmer Copleys in Pontefract (which is apparently the biggest pumpkin festival in the UK!). It’s a very busy event at weekends and during school half term so we do try to go outside of these times – it’s usually just us and a few others visiting that way which means I can take bookish pumpkin photos to my hearts content.

Going for the first autumnal drink of the season

How can I talk about autumnal traditions without mentioning autumnal drinks in coffee shops? Usually I opt for a mulled cider but since I can’t drink this year, I’m excited to try Costa’s bonfire spiced cold brew. Starbucks are also doing a pumpkin spice loaf cake which sounds amazing!

Autumn drive & walk through the Peak District

This has become a tradition without me even noticing – we always seem to take a drive through the Peak District during autumn and so, naturally, stop off on the way for a walk through the woods as they turn orange.

Taking some woodland witch selfies

Again, this is something I always seem to do without meaning to – but how can I not when I’m basically camouflaged by red leaves?

Dressing up for Halloween for the fun of it

I’ve not been out for Halloween for years, even to parties – however, I love dressing up or at least dressing witchy so that I feel like I’m involved still. A couple of years ago I dressed up as one of my favourite film characters, Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice, purely so I could take some spooky selfies.

Bonfire Night
I used to always go to a big local bonfire when I was younger. These days, our tradition for bonfire night tends to be watching fireworks from our house as it’s on a hill and easy to see across town!

Manchester Christmas Markets

Merging into winter a bit here, but since the markets open in late November and always have quite an autumnal feel to them, I thought I’d include them! I’ve been going to the Manchester Christmas markets for years, and for the past few years it’s been a trip that I do with my mum, and I love this little end of autumn/start of Christmas celebrations tradition that we have.


Do you guys have any autumnal traditions? Let us know in the comments!

love,
Becky

  1. Love your photos! Me and my son go to carve a pumpkin at our local garden centre and we decorate the house! Then we go to a fireworks display at a football ground by me, we always love it!
