halloween decorations

Halloween is pretty low key here in rural Ireland with a few decorations people have around their house and in windows.  Some of the shops do decorate their windows but it's not overwhelming.  The kids have fancy dress day at school so they have lots of fun for Halloween and of course they will be walking the streets trick and treating on this day.  Below are scenes I came across last week when I was out walking,







rosatos pizza and pub entrance


these photo frames are pretty cool.  When you pass them, the images change to skeletons.

even nature can join the fun :)

  2. It is not something we are familiar with here, but commerce sees opportunities and we see some stuff of it now here too. It is a bit strange to me to see all that scary outings on doors and in gardens.

  3. Nothing too horrifying! Jack o' lanterns are my favourite!

  4. The kids will love knocking at those doors! Here the traditional treat or tricking will occur between 6pm and 8 pm. Most of the houses in my neighborhood are decorated.

    Have a good Halloween day!

    😱😈👺😲👽

  11. Wow what a great assortment of "Weenie" goodies. I especially like the family member portrait (with the skull). Happy Halloween to you!

  12. I love all the Hallowe'en decorations but most of all I love the yellow house with the purple door, great colour combo! And those family portraits are loads of fun.
    When I was a child growing up in England, I had never heard of the trick or treat Hallowe'en tradition. I first encountered it when I arrived in Canada, quite a surprise.

  13. All so interesting. I'm wondering how you enter the pub with a skeleton hanging in the passageway.

  17. These are fun! I especially like the green pumpkins -- how appropriate for Ireland! (We don't get any trick or treat'ers. The kiddies here swarm to our downtown for two hours and do their thing.)

  19. GOSH! I must live in a boring neighbourhood.
    Well, there were lots of kids ringing the doorbell last night.
    Luckely I had bought plenty of sweets.

  20. Great variety of decorations. Here it seems like everyone has giant inflatable things all over their lawns.

  21. Halloween in Ireland of all things! American culture is being exported everywhere, even if low culture.
