As we hit October, your mind might start wandering to trick or treaters, fancy dress and excessive mountains of sweets.
But Halloween isn’t the only time that we gorge ourselves on large amounts of chocolate and as our A-Z look back at Ipswich reaches E we look at how Easter has been marked over the past 35 years. Our first images show an egg decorator at work in April 1979.
And here we see Tower Ramparts Easter egg competition from back in March 1989.
Do you think she struggled to eat all that chocolate?
Proudly showing off their decorated eggs are pupils from Whitehouse School who entered the Easter egg competition in April 1979.
Were you one of the winning artists?
And these are the winners of another egg decorating contest held four years later in 1983, when Easter fell slightly earlier.

Tomorrow we look at Foxhall Stadium.
