Halloween has never been that big in Australia.
Growing up as a kid- it wasn't celebrated here at all.
I can't help thinking that we really missed out on something.
Halloween, Day of the Dead, All Saints Day.
All over the world and through history, it has had its various spine-chilling forms.
Essentially I think its popularity comes down to two things:
(1) We love being scared
(2) We love dressing up.
Maybe there is a another reason...
Over the last few years there has been a slow eerie change!
More and more Australians are joining in the fun,
We are going to the neighbours house,
so I've made them a little gift....
I found this ABC book for 10 cents at the local op shop.
Then cut the triangles.
Sewed on the ribbon.
I used the book cover to make into an envelope.
Stitched the sides.
Made a tag.
So, what is the other reason Halloween is still so relevant and popular?
I think it reminds us of our mortality.
It gives us a chance to remember,
to grieve, to laugh.
