Halloween in Canada


In Canada Halloween starts as soon as fall is there. People carve pumpkins, buy their costumes, decorate their gardens with fake graves and buy tons of candy.

Even though I went trick or treating for years, this Halloween will definitely be the one I remember the most. The streets were almost crowded by kids who partly wore very creative and funny costumes - I loved it, even young people went door to door. AND it´s worth it! We came back with innumerable packages of chips, maaany chocolate bars and other, for me, indefinable candy.

Some houses had an awesome decoration and everybody was happy to see us! My attitude to Halloween really changed because of this evening. In Germany I didn´t care about it at all and now I truly love it. Next year I´ll carve a lot of pumpkins and wait for children the whole evening so I can tell them about Canadian Halloween and how awesome it is :D


The whole Halloween week there were activities in my high school. I participated in a pumpkin carving contest with my friend Noémie and we actually carved the second best pumpkin, we named it Bruno (left). After that I carved Carl (right) at home.

We also won a Tims gift card because of our costumes. We were dressed up as tourists.. the rain coat was really hot and we both got a headache because the whale hat was so tight. But it was really funny and for free donuts we´ll do anything anyway :D
I´m very proud of us!

See you soon!
