Halloween 2015







Quotations from visiting trick-or-treaters

(taking a package of Smarties)
"My mom loves these, and it's her birthday, so . . . "

(child with a blue Mohawk and wearing a giant Minions costume)
"Have I been here before?"

(Indicating one of our jack-o-lanterns)
"I'll remember this pumpkin because it's epic."

(A mother, after her child picks a piece of candy)
"He never picks anything I like."

(A father, after encouraging his child to take a piece of candy)
"But normally you don't take candy from strangers, okay?"

(teens, as they were leaving, after receiving candy from Wakanomori)
"That guy was chill, man. He was the chillest guy."

Epic!

We have had quite a few trick or treaters this year. We're going 'til the candy's gone and then doing a walk around our neighborhood. Our street is a bit sad, but two blocks over is really happening.

It's so fun in a place where it's lively! Carnival time!

Awesome pumpkins!

You're so lucky. We never get trick-or-treaters. :(

We *are* lucky. We have to make a serious investment in candy, but it's worth it.

Thanks--they're pretty crude (when you think of what you can do with patterns and fancy tools), but you can get some good effects even with very basic cuts.

Rained like crazy, here

Didn't see any kids on my street (I had my light off, but...)

It rained *lightly* here after all the festivities finished. Wish you could have seen (or heard; I mainly heard--by the time I got out to investigate, they'd pretty much finished) the kids w/the electric guitars & drums performing. It was most excellent.

And, in fact, one of my siblings has a birthday on Halloween.

I have such wonderful memories of Halloween, but it just isn't the same living in countries where it is an (commercially) imported holiday.

No, I totally understand. It's not the same.

These are too heavy to be portable, so you're good with lantern!

Even we did a pair of trick and treaters this year (frantic search for candy followed, as we did not expect any (American influence here, I just hope it will not kill the [hope of rebirth of] traditional St. Martin Day beggars and St.Catherine Day beggars, who bring luck for next year harvest)

Oh I do hope it won't kill the older custom!
