Halloween has never been something we celebrated in Sweden. It is something I have come across lately, especially since we moved abroad. Last year, we went to our first (!) Halloween party and it was very nice, I dressed up as a witch (what a suitable costume to go along with my personality...) and the husband put on a funny hat. This year we are trying to take it to another level. A completely new level. Last week, we had an amazing Halloween party, all dressed up in the most unimaginable costumes...! We laughed, ate and danced all night long!
This week, three Halloween parties awaits us ignorants from the North. Two parties for the kids, Elias will go as a bright green skeleton and Joli as a witch...(talking about matching personality!!). She has her own little party at nursery as well! On Saturday, a bigger party for kids and adults takes place and we all make our contributions.
I am truly looking forward, any excuse to celebrate, get together and met friends and get to know new people is good enough for me!
I bought the kids a small Pumpkin bag for the Trick & Treat and will try to remember to keep an extra load of sweets at home in case some witches, skeletons or wizards will come round to our house this weekend.
In between these parties, we have a birthday party to attend to also. Busy, busy! My trip to Kabul on Sunday almost seems like a relaxing getaway, to recharge the batteries and get De- Halloweened....
