Halloween here doesn’t come with as much of the hoopla as it does in Canada and the US. It does seem that people do dress up for parties. After a discussion with a colleague however we realised that their costumes tend to have a scary/spooky theme versus at home where most girls use it as a chance to dress up as their slutty alter egos and guys dress up in whatever is lying around the house that can qualify as a costume so they can be at the same party as the aforementioned gals.
They also don’t seem to go door to door trick or treating here like they do at home which is good cause I was never good at giving away candy – I don’t share well
Anyhoo while in the US last month I couldn’t resist taking pictures of some of the many Halloween themed items.
Nothing says halloween like a card featuring Obama – who gives halloween cards anyway??
Toothpaste and hand wash? – apparently the containers even glow in the dark!
Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo of the halloween plasters (band aids), kitchen roll (paper towel) or plastic lunch containers….overkill??
