Hahahaha:) What a cute joke!
I can't wait for Halloween to come round:) I love it!
It is a quite new tradition in Norway but seeing as I've always had some form of connection to the US (friends and cousins living there) I've been celebrating Halloween ever since I was a kid. The first few years we never got much out of our trick or treating. Most people had no idea why a bunch of ghosts and vampires turned up on their doorstep pestering them for sweets
This one American lady almost started crying for joy when we came knocking though. She was so upset that she hadn't any sweets to give away but she raided her cupboards for biscuits and even gave us some money
We didn't mind that at all
In the recent years it has become really popular but unfortunately the focus is much more on the gorey aspects up here. In some areas older kids seem to treat Halloween as an excuse to get away with all sorts of mischief. Luckily that isn't the case where I live. We seem to have an understanding that if people put out the front door lights they don't wish to parttake of the tradition and we walk on by. Most of the kids are dressed as ghouls, witches and monsters but act like polite little angels
I'm still crazy for dressing up and can't wait to turn my house into a witches house
We usually have people over and we have spag bol for dinner, or worms and what ever was left of the postman as I like to call it. I actually made a little girl cry one year too
I had to reassure her that it was really just regular sauce and that the postman was still very much alive
And of ourse watching Nightmare Before Christmas is obligatory!
This year Christi tells me that she wants to dress up as a character from an Agatha Christie novel
I think she has her heart set on Poirot, and she wants Nic to be Mrs Marple
Maybe we'll all go for the idea and turn this place into a crime ridden 1930s British mansion
I'll be the butler waiting in the library with a candlestick
