October is here along with the upcoming holidays, these days just seem to go a lot faster. Although it's still a bit warm here, I feel that the cold weather is just going to arrive all of a sudden. It will be a good thing; get the fire-places going, get out the blankets, sweaters and just bundle up. My daughter is already planning on being Catwoman for Halloween. I reminded her that when she was just about 5 months old, we put her into a "kitten" outfit.
Halloween is big here in America, very different from anywhere else in the world. I have also experienced -All saints Day- (Dia de los muertos in Mexico) in very traditional ways.

How do you celebrate?

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays. Sadly we don't celebrate it in Greece. We have a Carnival time, but nothing like Halloween. But because i studied in an American College, we used to have celebrations there. Same thing with Thanksgiving.
The only thing i do is decorate the house with pumpkins and spooky witches and spiders because my son likes them. Other than that, it goes unnoticed in Greece. :(

Call me a cynical but I've always felt that Halloween is simply a creation for marketing departments of stores and card companies. I say the same about Valentines Day as well.
