Halloween isn't as big here as it is in other countries. But since I have visitors here from all over the world, I feel like making a small post with photos of funny and/or creative carved out pumpkins.
Here kitty kitty kitty...
Is Halloween like heaven for the paedobear...?
This reminds me of the handsome Cheshire cat
And now you can kiss...

... or Halloween, like it's called today.
It's an annual holiday - on October 31st.
I don't celebrate Halloween myself, all though they do say that sales of pumpkins go up here during the month of October. And I'm one of those who causes it. I do like to carve a pumpkin and let it sit in my yard with a tealight in.
Another Halloween custom is to dress up. Halloween costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures such as monsters, ghosts, skeletons and devils. But there are other options, as long as they're scary or creepy.
In case you haven't figured out which costume to wear yet, I've put this small post together for inspiration.
Why so serious??
Grab something to eat...
Visit the catholic priest...
Snuggle on the sofa with your favourite toy...
... but please do stay out of the water!
If we're lucky there might be superheroes around...
Happy Halloween, everybody!

Tomorrow is Halloween, and perhaps you were invited to a Halloween party. But what to wear? Decisions, decisions...
Here are some ideas to original costumes, that almost guarantee you wear a unique costume at the party.
The periodical costume:
And if you're taking a friend with you to the party, you can dress up as Siamese twins:
How about being a Pong game from very old days?
Or if you're a baby - or even bring a baby, here's suggestion for you that'll scare the crap out of grandma!
If you tend to lose your head, I've got just the right costume for you...
(And yes, I love the makeup too!
Or - if you've got friend with a really outrageous sense of humour, here's the costume for you. The 'Giving birth'-costume:
More Halloween tomorrow.

It's Halloween soon. I'm not really
celebrating Halloween. Halloween was abolished in Denmark in 1770, but is slowly returning now, in the American shape. I've dug up some trivia for you guys about the holiday, that has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day.
Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.
The ancient Celts thought that spirits and ghosts roamed the countryside on Halloween night. They began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human.
Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death.
Halloween is the second most commercially successful holiday in the states, with Christmas being the first.
Black cats were once believed to be witch's familiars who protected their powers.
But!! Do you know how pumpkin pies are really made? No? I'll show you - take a look:
(It's on purpose I'm not saying 'Happy Halloween' just yet. This isn't the last Halloween-post.
