very year the summer is brought to an abrupt end by the annual ‘Back to School’ invasion of the country’s high streets and shopping malls. Yet no sooner have we all been seduced into re-stocking our supplies of pens, pencils, rubbers, sharpeners, rulers, Tip-pex and the like, than those same shop windows are invaded by ghosts, witches, spiders, bats and pumpkins. Yes, Hallowe’en is just around the corner and for once you don’t have to clean away the cobwebs – they can take pride of place as the centrepiece of your seasonal décor. Hallowe’en was never really celebrated here in Spain until quite recently, but the exposure it has had in American films and TV series, along with its fullscale commercialisation by the US and UK party goods industries, has led to its ever-increasing popularity. It is now celebrated in many schools and ‘trick-or-treating’, although not nearly as widespread as in the Englishspeaking world, is becoming more and more popular. To help you through the ‘bewitching hours’, we’ve compiled a list of useful vocabulary, and there’s also a recipe for Pumpkin Soup in this edition to help you Tr y pract isi n g t hes e word s by get into the ‘spirit.’ tran sl ati n g th e fol l owi n g spo oky s e n te n c e s :
