One Night to Fright Night

Dear Diary,

Haggy Aggy has gone to Witch Rattle’s for a Bad Temper Competition—giving me a chance to catch up on a few things of my own.

The good news is this: there’s only one night to go till Fright Night—and I can hardly wait!!

Probably you don’t know about Fright Night (how would you; you’re a diary), so I’ll tell you.

Fright Night is the night we dress up as ghastly ghouly characters like witch-hunters and vampire dogs and gather in the Narrow Avoid to celebrate who we are by trying to scare each other witless!

The witch and her Familiar who scare the most of us—by dawn—win.

Then—when the High Hags have counted up the scores, their Familiars have served us hot comfrey tea, and our wits have returned—we fly back to the Hags’ Headquarters. There the Hags present the trophy to the winners in a supernova ceremony with shooting stars and a bonfire of old broomsticks. It truly is the best night ever.

I’m hoping to go as a Giant Witch-Eating Tarantula and my costume is spelled up, ready, and impatient. But so far HA is saying she thinks she’ll give the whole thing a miss. Give Fright Night a miss? I ask you: what kind of a witch gives Fright Night a miss?

(Answer: only mine, dear Diary, only mine!)


TADPOLES

IN SOCKS!


What’s THAT hurtling down the garden path in a cloud of pink? Looks like HA. Better go and see what THIS is all about.
