In October, the days get shorter. It’s still dark in the morning when I wake up and I have to turn the lights on early in the evening. At the end of October, we change the clocks by one hour so we get more light in the morning. The weather gets cooler and there is more rain. The leaves on the trees change colour from green to yellow, orange, red and brown. It’s beautiful.
The last day of the month is Hallowe’en. Children dress up as witches, ghosts and scary monsters. Sometimes they knock on neighbours’ doors and ask for sweets. They say, “Trick or treat!” This means “give me a treat or I’ll play a trick on you” or “give me some sweets or I will do something bad.” I hate Hallowe’en and I usually pretend that I am not at home!
