Tumshie is the Halloween story of a dad and son making old fashioned Halloween lanterns and a costume together. The story is set today in Scotland, and it's inspired by how a Scottish Halloween used to be celebrated. Back when Halloween meant 'guising' (today that is trick or treating) and 'dooking for apples' (bobbing for apples) and carving out a tumshie (Scots for turnip) was a rite of passage for Scottish children who needed the strength of an ox and the stubbornness of a donkey.
