    Halloween around the globe

    Halloween is celebrated in many places in many fashions on October 31st. For a little history: Halloween - Origin & History of Halloween

    Some people enjoy Halloween, some ignore it, while others put up with it or can't abide it. I used to enjoy the night as a child...as a parent, it was fun for me to follow our daughter around...and now I carve a pumpkin and hand out candy to the little children who ring our doorbell as they say "Trick or treat.":biggrin:

    If you've got some good Halloween or Hallow's Eve pictures, please add them here!

    They've started early in our town. Here is a little house I often see on my morning walks with my dog. I used my iPhone to make this picture with a dollop of Snapseed and then into the Lightroom cauldron. View attachment 42899

  3. There was a great History channel show about the origin of Halloween and it's progression until today.

  4. I was going to make my own thread, but will just add to your I guess.

    Some Fall decorations my wife put out over the weekend. Love this time of year, the colors, the smells, the fun.

    The first one turned out well, the other ones, not so much. Need to reshoot them under more consistent lighting and with the tripod.

    A house a few blocks from me. Some people clearly get into the spirit of it.

    Nothing really specific, but I guess a bit playful, sometimes a bit morbid, but halloweeny:

    Not what I was looking for, but a short video:

    Haunted History of Halloween &mdash; History.com Video

    Nice additions everyone. Some people go all out for this "Strange" holiday.

    Kal, I've just merged our two Halloween threads into one. Scary is, after all, in the eye of the beholder. View attachment 43618

    X100 came along on our dog walk the other day...and spotted this on the way.

    Oscar has had Surgery on one leg, so he gets to wear the collar-of-shame so he does not chew his staples off

    Poor Oscar! I'm glad to know it's just a collar and he's not incarcerated in ice!
