samhain

although it makes me feel like an out-of-season grinch, i admit that hallowe'en is not my favorite holiday. so i keep things very low-key around here. plain pumpkins. striped hallowe'en socks hidden away under my pant leg. a few candles that would be lit any on other october night, too. there were no trick-or-treaters again this year, save for a little pirate girl whose arrival was greatly anticipated. i am always happy when all the hallowe'en fuss is over and done with and we can get on with the business of november. that said, if hallowe'en is important to you and yours, i hope your celebration was spooktacular.

Great photo Chris. I feel the same as you about Halloween - it's not my favourite celebration either and I look forward to getting on with November too. I was Keeper of the Pumpkins this year and grew some for the special little people in my life and seeing them take theirs home did make me smile. One tradition I'm happy to oblige with! penny

We don't really bother with Halloween here, we just get excited about Bonfire Night on November 5th!

We don't do Halloween yet in the Netherlands, although the custom is threatening to blow over from the States. I sincerely hope it doesn't. Each country should keep its own customs.
