I’m ok with ghosts and ghouls, I find a friendly chat does the trick. Once you’ve given them a few minutes of your time they are happy to float off and find someone else to try to engage in conversation. But encounters with vampires are a bit trickier and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
1) Eat garlic – lots of it. Don’t wait until Halloween. Aim to consume three bulbs daily in the week prior. Order from your favourite supermarket via TheGivingMachine and you can raise a free donation by shopping online and without risking bumping into any witches out stocking up on frogs, eyes of newts and kale.

2) Wear a cross at all times. My husband wears a cross expression most of the time so I think we are all set there.
3) Don’t invite strangers into your house – vampires can only cross your doorstep if you invite them in (but seriously have you ever invited a vampire looking stranger into your house for a cup of tea? No of course not – a Tiger, now that’s a totally different story as Judith Kerr will tell you!) You can order your copy here
5) Sprinkle grains such as oats or rice on the ground around your home. Apparently, most Vampires have OCD and will be forced to pick up and count every item before going any further. An added bonus is if there any still on your path come Christmas Eve – add some glitter and you’ll have your Reindeer feed all ready to guide Santa and his Sleigh directly to your door).
