This week we're celebrating Halloween and thought we'd treat you to something a little different. Why do we celebrate you ask? Well, one half of Christie & Christie®, Julia's husband, Dr Arrlann Christie, was actually born and raised in Canada! As one of his favourite holidays growing up, it was something he wanted his own children to experience too and they've made some fantastic memories over the years. Plus we think with the year we've had, a little fun is just what the Doctor ordered!
We asked Arrlann a few quick questions about growing up with Halloween for our special this week...
What was your favourite lolly to receive? First off we don't have lolly's in Canada. We have candy. My favourite were coffe crisp chocolate bars, but only if I was lucky enough to get one. Second favourite would be a small pack of Whoppers (you'd call them Malteasers).
Favourite costume you wore for Halloween? I loved any costume where I got to put on fake blood ... which is just about anything. Even super heroes could have been in a battle.
Favourite scary movie? The Gremlins or Lost Boys
Did you play any 'tricks'? Well I grew so tall that I would have to trick the adults into thinking I was a little kid by kneeling at the back of the group until the candy was handed out. Then would get up and run to the next place (you always ran to try fill your candy bag). If anyone complained I'd yell out it was their 'trick' as I ran off into the night!
