Get out your candy corn and candles and costumes! It’s Halloween and Dia de los Muertos aka Day of the Dead. Do you celebrate them?

  1. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California where we shared many Mexicano customs. On Dia de Los Muertos we especially enjoyed visiting Olvera Street where we enjoyed both costumes and ambience. We could always look forward to special programming at Casa de las Golondrinas (when we had enough money to eat there, that is). Of course, this was only a Gringa’s eyeview of the customs celebrated in border towns and lower in Mexico, but much enjoyed nonetheless.

  2. I went to my first ever Dutch Halloween party this year! Halloween’s not big in the Netherlands yet, so nobody had a really good costume (me included – although I did manage to fit into my prom dress from 16 (!!) years ago. I guess that in itself if pretty scary D:). But we had a good time.

    You two look like you’re having TONS of fun in that picture! 🙂

    1. What a funny thing, Sharon (& thank you!) — I was in Australia when you asked (with iffy wifi only) — but I don’t like to say on social media when I’m away — surely you have ESP!


  3. Hahah I love the photo!
    I’m looking forward to some shopping tomorrow when things are discounted because I love the homewares and such (already have skull decorations, jewellery and mugs from last year, I love the designs that come with Halloween and Dia de los Muertos) 🙂
    Happy Halloweeeeeeen!

  4. In my country, we don’t celebrate Halloween. We have many holidays, most of them to do with freedom, the heroes who fought for it, us becoming a republic and of course the Christian holidays since we are a Christian nation.
    From the photo, looks like you were having loads of fun.
