Happy Halloween

I have seen nary a Halloween costume or carved pumpkin in Budapest and I didn't think I'd miss it so.  Hubs and I aren't really into Halloween, but we love kicking back with some scary movies and shelling out treats to the miniature ghouls and princesses in the neighbourhood.  Hungarians seem to love their treats, so I'm puzzled they haven't jumped on the Halloween bandwagon.  At the bank, I caught a teller ducking under her desk to stuff a chocolate bar in her mouth.  In line to buy my metro pass, the guy in front of me couldn't even finish his transaction before ravenously tearing into a treat.  You'd think they'd be all over Halloween, with its abundance of yumminess. 

Unless they all spring Halloween on me at the last minute, I'm Halloween-less.  At least the neighbourhood kiddies back home can ogle my new DIY Halloween wreath with its glitzy beaded spiders.  I don't think Hubs is shelling out, so I'll just give them each double treats next year.  Unless they mutiny tonight.  Then next year they'll get raisins.


Tell me: did you have a fun Halloween weekend?  Are you dressing up tonight?  Handing our more or less candy than you intend to consume?  Let me live vicariously (include some links if you've blogged about it), and have a safe and happy night.

Happy Halloween folks!!

  1. You and your mom should put on outlandish costumes and eat a sinful amount of candy tonight. :)

    1. Haha! Well, we did stop by the patisserie, so we plan on eating a sinful amount of cake. And, after a day of wearing a hat, my hair does look pretty ghoulish!

    1. Oh, I'm excited for you!! I felt the same our first year in the townhouse. After apartment living, it was fun to have a door kids trick or treated to.

  3. I agree with Dana - dress up and pig out! Today is our anniversary (yes, I love Halloween so much, I got married on the day) so we're going out to a nice fancy pants dinner tonight, so we won't be handing out candy. I did buy candy though. Which we already ate. Ha!

    PS - love the photoshop work on that pic!

    1. Haha - I had so much fun making myself green (picmonkey!).
      Toy Story characters?? That is so genius - I love costumes that go together, so that is so sweet. Have fun!

  6. We always carve pumpkins, watch scary movies, hand out Halloween candy and eat plenty of it ourselves. I usually refuse to watch scary movies, so I think my husband looks forward to this day haha.

    1. Hubby normally refused scary movies, so I look forward to this day (it's easier to convince him to watch him if I hold the reese peanut butter cups ransom). Hope you find a great movie!

  7. We love Halloween and having 2 kids in the house, amps up the anticipation. We had a halloween party on Friday for a small group of friends with a spooky twist on Alice in Wonderland as the theme.
    And for Halloween (eve), this year, my daughter (12yo) was into decorating herself. She created a spooky candlelit path between our house and the fence- she worked pretty hard on it and it was great to see her diy it herself. We live on the edge of town and really don't have any trick or treaters but she invited a couple of friends to come by and be spooked. She did a good job- nothing gory just creepy- probably not too scary for 12 year olds but my husband jumping out at them with a mexican wrestler mask at the end took care of that business.

    1. Ooo, great theme! A spooky Alice in Wonderland theme has so much fun potential. That's so sweet your daughter decorated. I loved doing that when I was that age too. It's hilarious hubby did the work of scaring them! Gosh, it sounds like your household had so much fun!!
