What’s your Halloween costume and what’s your holiday?
The UK has been rocked by a rash of holiday-themed attacks that has seen two people murdered in just the past few days.
A 19-year-old man has been charged with murdering his father-in-law, who had recently been stabbed to death.
In the early hours of Wednesday, a man wielding a knife entered the home of a couple and stabbed them to death inside their house.
The attack came just days after a 19-hour siege in Birmingham, England, in which at least 11 people were killed and another 40 wounded.
Authorities have yet to release details of the case, but said the motive for the attack was not known.
In a video posted to social media by the local police force, the couple’s father-to-be, Thomas Brown, is seen being rushed to hospital with severe injuries to his face and neck.
“The father-of-four has been stabbed twice, both times to the chest,” the police said in a statement.
“It is now clear that the attack is planned and is being carried out by a man with a knife.
The police added that the man with the axe had “begun to assault a member of staff with a kitchen knife”. “

Police in the US, where the terror threat level is the highest in the world, said on Thursday that at least four Americans were among the dead in the attack.
In a statement, the US State Department said US citizens are being “visited by authorities” and were being offered consular assistance.
“The US government remains in contact with the United Kingdom and other international partners in the fight against terrorism and remains vigilant and resolute in the face of these acts of violence,” it said.
Meanwhile, the police in Germany are trying to find a suspect in the case.
Police spokesman Stefan Kärntner told the AP news agency that officers had found an abandoned car in the southern city of Gelsenkirchen where they believe the attacker may have been driving.
“We have a number of tips, but we have no other leads,” he said.
