To be honest, I'm not really into Halloween. I never did the trick or treat thing as a kid and growing up in Mexico, they celebrated Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). It spans over 2 days, 1st and 2nd November where they remember those who have died. I remember at school, an altar thing was built up and it would be covered in gorgeously decorated chocolate skulls as a way of remembrance. All I wanted to do was eat them!
We've started to get a bit more excited about Halloween since toddler came along as it gives us an excuse to dress him up (which he hates) and attend numerous parties meant for them but really an excuse for us adults to release our inner child. Today we are heading to such a party where am sure the kids will be wondering why they are dressed up AGAIN and the parents will be trying to get on the bouncy castle.
On another scary note, who saw John and Edward on X Factor last night. That was certainly a horrifying end to my evening! I will admit though, they were quite entertaining! And what the heck was Cheryl Cole wearing??
Here are some photos of toddler enjoying his last 3 Halloweens!
