A Summary and Analysis of Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Red Shoes’ Fairy Tale — Interesting Literature

‘The Red Shoes’ (1845) is perhaps the strangest of all of Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known fairy tales.

Share Your World…Kind of, lol

I’m doing a little bit of a twist on the Share Your World, meaning when it’s usually about sharing some questions that the beautiful Melanie (and sometimes Roy) share with us. What am I going to share with you, is what I like to do to celebrate the more “Americanised” Halloween.

Favourite Halloween Films:

I’m honestly, not into the scary films, like your very scary, violent films … Real life is scary enough after all.

  • Nightmare Before Christmas
  • All The Addams Family
  • The Mummy
  • Phantom of the Opera
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Young Frankenstein
  • Dracula (Keanu Reeves, Ryder and Oldman).

Favourite Halloween Foods/Treats:

  • Candy Corn…I think it’s delicious!
  • I love making chocolate mousse and then putting gummy worms through it.
  • I haven’t yet, but I do want too make mead!
  • I do like toffee apples, but I can never get through it all.
  • In the past, I have made popcorn with white icing, and candy corn. You have to use either salted popcorn or buttered, for a really good flavour. Nothing plain on Halloween! The white icing sticks the candy corn to the popcorn.
  • I don’t know why, but I really love Oreos on Halloween.
  • Smores…I’ve seen a recipes call them Ghost Smores, they just put little eyes on the peak.
  • Hot Chocolate … with the Marshmallow!

Favourite Halloween Music:

Favourite Halloween Tales:

  • Jack-o-Lanterns and the Legend of ‘Stingy Jack’
  • The Raven – Edgar Allan Poe
  • Sleepy Hollow

Which tastes better: black or green olives?

Honestly…I don’t really like any kind of olive.

What’s your favorite room in your home?

It has to be between my bedroom and the lounge room. The reasoning behind that is sometimes if I’m in bedroom for too long. I start to feel cut off from everyone and that can feel a little confining. Being in the lounge can feel more opening, especially since the couches/lounge that we have is just so darn comfortable!lol

What fictional family would you be a member of?

I would love to be a member of the Undómiel. Which, for those who do not know. Is a Middle Earth family and consists of Arwen and Elrond and Galadriel.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

This week I can definitely say my family. I got to spend a lot of the week with them before they all left to their various places. I love being with them, honestly if I could live with them all the time…I would!lol
