Trick or treat?

Just wanted to take the opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Halloween!

What do you intend to do? Have a party? Here in Belgium Halloween is getting more and more popular. It isn't a custom that originates in these parts, but kids watch American TV and so Halloween has crept into our towns some time ago.

Normally we celebrate 1st November, All Saints. But then Belgium is mainly a catholic country (or used to be).... It's the time when you go and visit the graves of your lost ones - although this custom is slowly disappearing too. We buried the ashes of our mother simply in the garden (which is allowed by law). She always wanted to rest next to her pets (she lived there all her life) Minou and Pluche. So we respected her wish and buried the urn with her ashes there.
