Day Seven – Oct 31st Happy Halloween!
I loved halloween when i was growing up. I made an original costume, I had parties where we bobbed for apples, Went trick or treating and ate lots of candy. Of course we carved pumpkins. I brought the tradition of the pumpkin carving, and candy eating with me to Denmark and did it together with my girls, and their friends. Sometimes they’d dress up and we’d read ghost stories…..
It was a special – American event.
But now when Halloween has become something Danishized and commercialized here(within the last 15 years or so) – I’ve lost my interest, I think it’s a shame that the traditions special for a culture are incorporated into another culture. It somehow loses its magic…..
On that note – the pictures I took this morning have nothing to do with anything. Just a walk around the yard on a dark, foggy morning.
