It is believed that the custom of making jack-o’-lanterns at Halloween began in Ireland in the 19th century. Turnips or other root vegetables were hollowed out to act as lanterns and often carved with faces. The line of StarFire Prints by @TrendsettersLtd includes a jack-o’lantern by Marjolein Bastin.
My favorite time of day during autumn to go outside is early in the morning. It’s cold out but there is no wind to speak of so you can hear even the most timid birds sing and hear the falling leaves hit the ground.
Now in its 20th successful year, Brand Licensing Europe is the definitive event for the European licensing industry. BLE 2018 will take place October 9-11, 2018 at the Grand Hall, Olympia, London.
