Our take on Halloween

Untitled

You either love or hate Halloween here in Norway. It's not many years since the tradition came and it seems to grow each year. Our kids don't go trick or treat as I don't like Halloween that much, yet...
So instead we have made a graveyard cake and have watched "The Nightmare Before Christmas" tonight.

  1. I remember introducing halloween to my Norweigan friend who was an exchange student the year I was a junior in high school. She said the same thing, that she had never participated and couldn't see the point. I told her that the only point for me was free candy, and she said that was a pretty good reason, so off we went trick or treating. We had a GREAT TIME! I still think of her every year as I wander up and down the street with my little one. Happy Haunting... the cake is lovely!

  2. Great cake!! I am also undecided about Trick or treating, love your idea of enjoying it anyway though.

  3. We have the same situation here about Halloween. For our little family (me and husband) this day means pumpkin carving and watching (not rule) some horror movie.

  4. Ack! That cake looks wonderful (and particularly delicious since I'm off wheat and dairy...).

    I'm not a fan of Halloween but the kids go crazy for it so we share in the enthusiasm. Although hubby and I both secretly look forward to the day after. ;)

  5. That is a darling, darling cake! I'm not much for trick-or-treating either -- especially now that I have no little kids or even grandkids around. We sure get a lot of trick-or-treaters here at our house though and it's almost time to start giving out the candy! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  6. That is such an adorable cake! Don't worry, I'm American and I don't really enjoy Halloween. At the very least you are creating beautiful memories for your family.

  7. It's definitely all about the candy for Halloween here. My daughters' school took out all the nuts candies and so I rolled by after the parade and stuffed my pockets w/peanut M&Ms and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!
    Your cake is AWEsome! Slurpin' up my drool here.
