I don't do Halloween so this is a bit of a challenge for me. Halloween is not as popular in New Zealand as in other Western countries and in the past has not generally been celebrated here. I belong to the old school who claim it it not part of our heritage and why should we adopt something just because it is done in other countries? However, Halloween is slowly gaining in popularity with some retail outlets actively promoting Halloween costume sales. As a result more and more children are participating in "trick or treating” each year. In rural areas such as where I live, children don't go around trick or treating, to start with its just not practical but some schools hold a Halloween Party, so children still have the opportunity to dress up in costumes.
So, being a grouchy old sod, I don't have any Halloween photos. But I was in Canada a few years ago for Halloween and have to admit that I enjoyed every minute of it.
I think I can be pretty scarey at the best of times but, thanks to Picnic, made myself even more so:
I have to admit I took ghoulish pleasure doing nasty things to this photo of the magpie that has been dive bombing my grand-daughters.
This is probably as spooky as it will get around here. When you disturb a cow that is intent on muching grass, the result can be a bit frightening.
