Tiny Talk Tuesday #3: Halloween Traditions Around the World!

Tiny Talk Tuesday

Good Morning Friends!

We’re back with another Tiny Talk Tuesday! Today’s topic is: Halloween traditions around the world! When my husband and I first came together, I was surprised to learn that he celebrates Dia de Los Muertos as opposed to what I knew as an American Halloween. Then as I got older I realized that Halloween is so different all across the world! Some countries don’t celebrate Halloween at all! Instead, they have other holidays this time of the year that are equally as special and beautiful. So, today I’d love to learn more about what traditions YOU do around this time of the year! With readers spanning the whole globe I can’t wait to learn more about all the wonderful, amazing traditions you’ve grown up with. šŸ™‚ That said, let’s dive in!

Much love,

  1. 1. I was aware of the Dia de los Muertos holiday growing up as my best friend at the time was Mexican and always thought it was an incredibly moving way to honor those no longer with us.
    2. I love decorating our home for Halloween with my husband. We always make a fun night of it and usually end up watching a scary movie when we are done.
    3. Again, we decorate for fall as well…scare crows and pumpkins on the front porch, that sort of thing.
    4. For our annual Halloween party, I usually make deviled eggs that look like spiders. I use sliced olives to make the spider legs.
    5. I can’t think of a Halloween tradition from my younger days…we used to dress up and go trick-or-treating. As adults, we still occasionally dress up…but trick-or-treating has been replaced with drinking adult beverages šŸ™‚

  2. I’m with jack on this one, it’s still a big thing here, but it;s mostly for the kids these days. With that said, there is plenty of adult fun!

    The local BDSM club has a Halloween themed evening and I won’t deny ever divulging in a viewing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, oh and Beetlejuice, I NEED Beetlejuice! It’s also a chance to go out in public in a collar without anyone noticing, and I SWEAR the local kink people come out in force. Last year I bumped into a young couple wearing full leathers (I was wearing a choker) and we exchanged a sot of knowing smile. Halloween is our time to celebrate!

    When I was was a little girl, my Dad was big on Halloween, we used to make slime pots (promise I will post the recipe, I just need to obtain it first!) and hide wrapped sweets in them. Sometimes we’d be really cruel and have a bucked of sawdust as well, so the kids who were too cowardly to dig into the slime would go for the sawdust… and be rewarded with a doggy treat! Then.. then the real fun came, and the kids got confident so they’d go for the slime. Except on that occasion, the sawdust was where the real goodies were šŸ˜‰ Dad used to empty out the wheelie bin and clean it then hide in it and suprise the kids by jumping out and shouting “happy Halloween!”. Most of the trick or treaters probably wet themselves by the time they got through the gate! Oh, and there was the time we made a dummy from newspaper stuffed clothes and put it under the car with lots of homemade fake blood, our driveway was pretty quiet that year!

    I miss those days. I already plan to make a mask this year and put it in the window with some red LED lights to give it an eerie glow, which is what my father planned to do with his radiotherapy mask were he still alive.
