HALLOWEEN IN BELGIUM

Meanwhile in Belgium Halloween is also known but not as much celebrated as in the USA. In my street there is no Halloween decoration at all, although last year at least one house had a very "bloody" decoration. This year nothing. I just drove a little around in other parts of Waterloo but didn't see anything in the gardens.

To my surprise when on Friday afternoon I visited Annie from my painting class in her street the houses and gardens were decorated !





With all neighbors they even make a big Halloween street party with a special witch soup and the kids going from house to house. She said it started around 8 years ago.



When I came back home, I added the witch and the pumpkin to my autumn basket so that Mr. G. has now two witches in the house and at least it gives a little Halloween touch.

To those who celebrate Halloween
