A GUEST from the US is enjoying a British celebration of Halloween without all the sobriety and costumed nonsense he’s used to.
American Tom Logan was invited to celebrate Halloween in the UK by going to the pub wearing whatever he would normally wear and zero spooky bullshit.
He said: “I was super excited to explore the traditions of our sister country. Like my God, this is where all the castles and witches come from, so it’s going to be scary as hell.
“My buddies said to wear jeans and a shirt, which I thought was a little weird but in keeping with understated British culture, and to meet at 6pm for a ‘real session’.
“We began by drinking a traditional British Halloween potion called Jäegermeister, a mixture of occult spices from a spooky green bottle, poured into a tiny glass cauldron then dropped into a large glass flagon of Stella Artois. It was magical. I felt like I was levitating.
“Instead of going house-to-house trick-or-treating we went pub-to-pub and had to drink two rounds in each to keep spectres away, and then we ran down the streets shouting ‘whooo’ like ghosts.
“It was awesome, so much more authentically macabre than American Halloween. I woke up shivering and plagued with dread, and I’d shat myself.”
