On Friday night, the evening of Halloween, it was still raining (as it had all day). My children, however, still wanted to go out trick-or-treating. Dressing up warmly, we headed out. On our evening walk in the neighbourhood, we looked out for entrances that were lit with lights and jack o’lanterns.
As my children walked up to the many entrances, we admired the decorations that had been set out by the home owners.
We enjoyed the many pumpkin carvings. I appreciated the carvings depicting a scene from Gulliver’s Travels:
The one entrance we visited was surrounded by the beauty of Fall leaves. The entrance did not look so spooky to me – instead it seemed to be welcoming.
Not at all like this little ghost:
Or these skulls that littered one sidewalk:
One woman’s Halloween decorations were purple-inspired. As you can guess, I loved it!
This family had done a lot of pumpkin carving:
My daughters enjoyed the silhouettes of the characters from Monster’s University as seen in the window of this home:
And yet some more jack o’lanterns:
This spooky entrance caught my eye – the decorations were shown through the entrance windows of a house.
We particularly liked this carving:
Spiderwebs and cobwebs abounded as did skeletons, spiders and bats.
We expected the skeleton lying in the driveway to move – and then realised we had the wrong house. Maybe those homeowners had moved away?
This pumpkin pair had their orange guts spilled out onto the walkway.
I hope you enjoyed a little of the Halloween sights we enjoyed on our walk. I always enjoy looking at the decorations and the children’s costumes. Sadly the weather this year prevented me from seeing the little goblins and witches in their full regalia.
Did you go on a Halloween walk this year?
