Member For the first time in very many years we are having to sort out Halloween costumes.


I think we might be going as little bo peep and a sheep 😳. Because we have a lot of that to pull together with only one small purchase I made on amazon ( I hope it works) . I am slightly concerned the sheep suit might be too warm where we will be 😂.

Any one else getting dressed up or have any memorable past costumes?

Member that's something i really miss, getting dressed up.

you'll be in a sheep costume? that's priceless, you'll look adorable Big Grin

been way too long since i went to a fancy dress for halloween or got dressed up and tricked out the front porch with/for the kids.

my favourite costume for me (not halloween, just a neighbour's party) was little bo peep, all hand made, even down to the shepherd's crook... a broom handle with a wire coat hanger bent to shape and taped on, the whole of the top padded out with some old foam, then the entire thing wound with long strips from an old plain sheet, then trimmed with wound lilac and pink and blue ribbon and some lace Big Grin it was so pretty. the lace fingerless gloves were made with a few stitches and a lace ruche from the cut off shoulders of a stretch lace top i'd never wear again, the mop cap from a pillow case that matched colour-wise with the skirt. the skirt was bought from a charity shop and was caught up in loops all the way round the hem with elastic bands in a way that looked like little rose buds, and i wore it over an almost never worn embroiderie anglais petitcoat so the lace showed all around where the hem of the skirt was caught up in the swags. the blouse was a white gypsy style one, and the apron was another pillowcase trimmed with the same lace on the mop cap and crook. i wore some pretty lacey white stockings and pumps, and voila, a tit in a fancy dress costume Big Grin such fun making it, though.

Member I think we may dress up this year, but it's a bit late to be just thinking about it.

Odds are we will have a house full of teens, so we may just have to be responsible parent supervisors.

Member Denmark doesn’t observe Halloween. I used to have to special-order pumpkins from the Arabic store. In recent years the commercialism of both Valentines Day and Halloween has seemed too good to pass up, so stores are stocked more and more each year for both events. I’m very eager to learn if there are children cheeky enough to try and put trick or treating into practice. Would Danes even know what to do if kids in costumes show up at their doors in the night?

The other odd aspect is that they take what they learn about these observed days and will hand-pick what they like about them, and observe only that. For example, Valentines Day seemed to have been adopted as the day when men give women flowers and chocolates. It’s the men doing the giving but also women with this expectation.

It is bizarre seeing these events unfolding year after year, trying to take form based largely on stereotypes. It is wild to witness the forced formation of what a country hopes will eventually become a set day printed on all their calendars. The truly bizarre thing is that they already have Fastelavn in Spring, where kids dress up in costumes and go door to door asking for candy!

But if they try to take on Thanksgiving, I’m going to have words.

Member I think it’s a good practice to take the good from things and leave the less good !

And I think a holiday of thanks is a good thing. So many others are about what we get. Sad.

But yes , it’s really interesting seeing how they are observed differently in other places.

And the ...inaccuracies and cultural arguments and petty rows this starts.
