When I started blogging two 2 1/2 years ago, I saw for the first time Halloween pictures and could read how people, especially Americans celebrate Halloween. I started to celebrate it too, but only on my blog and a little decoration in my house.
This year for the first time in my life I celebrated Halloween, or rather I assisted to some celebrations. When my son was little it didn't exist, but since 4 or 5 years it comes slowly up also in Brussels.
There was a Halloween party under the Atomium. For those who don't know, the Atomium is for Brussels like the Statue of Liberty in New York or the Eiffel tower in Paris. A reason for me to "run" there, armed with my camera.
I saw a lot of devils and witches
cute little pumpkins
and also for the first time in my life a pumpkin carving ! What a fun for the kids ! I really regretted that I couldn't participate I had no child or grandchild at my disposal !
But I had a lot of fun together with my friend and when we had seen enough we had a hot tea and a Brussels' speciality, I forgot the name, but it was caramelized apple cake with Vanilla ice cream !
And to end my first Halloween day in real 9 little devils, pumpkins and witches rang at my door and asked for treats ! That too was an event as I live now 33 years in this house !! Of course I had bought sweets and chocolate just in case ....
I am always open to follow nice customs of other countries !
