Seasonal Fun

TRICK OR TREAT! Are you getting ready for Halloween? 

Fall is coming, you can feel it in the air. Although i must say the country i live in is a little bit confused about what temperature it should maintain, but i guess we can't have it all. Although i am a real summer baby i love wintertime. The only really fun day in summer is my birthday. In wintertime there are so many amazing fun holidays, it's like being a child again. So the holiday that has inspired me to write this post is our beloved Halloween of course. Who doesn't love Halloween, All Hallows Eve or even All Saints Eve. It's a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st of October. Mainly celebrated in the United States, but slowly blowing over to other countries. Originally Halloween was the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows, martyrs, and all the faithful departed. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related guising), attending Halloween costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films.

In the USA everybody is probably getting their houses ready for the most fun night of the year, others might still be preparing and discussing how to decorate. Here is some Halloween inspiration to have a look at.
