FUN MONDAY - ABOUT HALLOWEEN
Our host for this week Sayre gave us this assignment :
Tell us about your favorite Halloween as a kid (pictures, if you have them!), and show us your costume for this year. If you're not dressing up, show us a picture of a pumpkin carving that really tickled your fancy or how you decorated your house.

I had to modify this assignment a little because :
I have never celebrated Halloween until I started blogging in 2006 ! When my son was little nobody did it and I think I hadn't even heard of it.
When I saw all these wonderful costumes and decorations full of phantasy and creativity on especially American blogs, I started to look around and noticed that Halloween had started in Belgium too !
My town Waterloo since a few years organizes a Halloween party for the children in the city park and all the American citizens living in Waterloo started to show to the Waterloo people how to celebrate Halloween.
There is a pumpkin competition, a witch danse and a lot more. So now each year I go there to have a look and take some pictures. The real party starts when it gets dark but in the afternoon there are also activities and for photography daylight is of course better.
The Waterloo city parc, people start arriving
Isn't that an adorable little pumpkin ?
