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!!
