Halloween isn’t celebrated in my region of Australia. It’s seen more as an American Holiday as a fun excuse to wear costumes and eat lollies. What I know of Halloween as a kid was what I saw was on the TV. Kids collecting candy from neighbourhoods where fake spiderwebs were uses to create haunted houses.
With neighbors too far to walk to, Halloween seemed to be all about the sugar. Lots and lots of sugar – thus making it a dieter’s day of dread. It’s almost like Easter with the chocolate on the other end of the calender year.
So, is Halloween really all about candy?
Or is it about ghosts, witches, the Supernatural (the show too), the paranormal, and all things Stephen King.
To celebrate the occasion (while I unwrap another piece of candy) here is a mix of the mischievous, mysterious, and magical from R&R Ramblings:
And a scene of some nice witches enjoying their favourite feel-good holiday:
