I really want to carve pumpkins again. People get so creative with it. I found quite some interesting jack-o-lanterns searching for a nice halloween picture… have a look here and here and here. I really miss celebrating Halloween with Jon. Ok, I am not into the whole “scary thing”, but I do like the decorations that are put up and I think Halloween parties are kind of cool.
Tonight I am going to go out with my friend Ira. We haven’t been out together for months and we thought Halloween is a good reason to go out one more time [before I leave]. I am not quite sure what to expect. I’ve never been out on Halloween in Germany and frankly, I am not sure if it’s going to work for me, but I can tell you all about it tomorrow ;)
I am not going to dress up though. I don’t have a costume and I think dressing up half-assed is even more boring than not dressing up at all. But hopefully I can take some nice pictures for you of other people’s costumes :) Would that make up for the fact that I am a bore?
Have a great Halloween everyone… and [for you guys in the Catholic parts of Germany] enjoy the day off tomorrow!
Wikipedia tells us that “The term Halloween, and its older spelling Hallowe’en, is shortened from All-hallows-eve, as it is the evening before “All Hallows’ Day” (also known as “All Saints’ Day”)” which we celebrate tomorrow. So it kind of should be celebrated in Germany, too :)
