(Photograph) - Hubble bubble: two-year-old Alex Barnard prepares to celebrate Hallowe'en at the Animal House nursery, east London. The festival, now an occasion for pumpkins and pleasure, dates from pre-Christian days. The souls of the dead were said to return on October 31 - the eve of All Saints' Day.
