This is the front of my house, all decorated and ready for Halloween.
Halloween in Canada is completely different to the ones we experienced in England. Like most holidays here, Halloween is a family affair. Even the youngest of kids are dressed up in a costume for school or day care and as soon as the sun begins to set the doorbell starts to ring as we are bombarded with an adorable array of pirates, princesses, witches and wizards.
According to a recent survey almost half of Canadians will celebrate Halloween in some form, mostly it is dressing up, trick or treating and decorating their homes. My decorations are pretty tame compared to many, lots of houses in my neighbourhood have tombstones, skeletons and cobwebs all over the front yard. So although we didn’t celebrate Halloween in England we do now, when in Rome…right?
And no one is more pleased about our new tradition than youngest son because this was his haul last year, in little over an hour he collected enough candy to see him passed Christmas!
