I plan to do some Halloween hauls but at the moment I have so much stuff that I don’t even know where to start. I thought it would be nice to apply Hygge to Halloween. Hygge is something that I have started to introduce to my life about a year ago. Halloween is my absolute favourite time of year. I live for it. This year, however, it hasn’t been as easy to celebrate Halloween as we have suffered the loss of our beautiful baby, Pumpkin. I won’t get into that now because it is too painful and sad, instead I’ll discuss some self-caring and fun things to do at Halloween other than eating lots of sweet and scaring the bejaysus out of people (both of which are very great activities). Here are a few Halloween things that I think lend themselves well to the concept.
I’m not one for being overly warm or cosy. I hate the idea of fleece socks or pjs as I’m constantly boiling. Those kind of things make me feel claustrophobic so for me candles and soup is about as toasty as I’m willing to go. This pumpkin soup is lovely; it is healthy and low in fat.
You will need a pumpkin, a red pepper, an onion and some stock, chicken or vegetable, whichever works for you.
- Cut the pumpkin into segments like you would with a melon and roast it in the oven for about 15 minutes. This will make it easier
