Halloween, American style

It truly felt like my boys’ first halloween (for me.) I mean, they were 10 months and 2 years old the last time they were in the States for the spooky trick-or-treating holiday. And, no offense Australia, but you guys just don’t do Halloween like us ‘Mericans. 

We trick-or-treated at many houses with amazing, spooky, creepy, nightmare-inducing decorations. 




and made our way down to the little “village” in our town, where the street was closed off and the shopowners were giving out treats. It was such a fun time! 

The boys complained about being a bit cold so we didn’t stay out as long as they would have liked, but they sure did get enough treats to fill their pumpkin buckets. 

I truly enjoyed being back in the States for this holiday. I read on FB from an Aussie friend that some Australians are anti-Halloween, calling it “too American” but honestly, it is just about having fun. Kids love to dress in costume, and who doesn’t love candy? You get to say hello to your neighbors and have a little scare while doing so. I don’t see any harm in it. So Happy Halloween! 


Bring on Thanksgiving 🙂
