Not a Halloween post

I think everyone has been going a little overboard with Halloween this year.
Maybe it's because it's still kind of new to us Danes, and i'm just not used to the hysteria yet, but still, it's all anyone has been posting about for days now.
Here in Denmark we have our own, very nice, little dress-up-holiday called Fastelavn and i guess i feel bad for it, getting bullied into oblivion by this shiny, new and popular American version.
So i wasn't gonna post anything Halloween related on the blog, at all.
Until two things made my nerd-ar (is that a word? And if not, can i make it one?) go completely nuts.

First these pictures of Alyson Hannigan, Alexis Denisof and their baby Satyana out trick or treating:

(Pictures found here)

And then this from Wil Wheaton on Twitter:

So, happy Halloween to those who like to celebrate it.
Me, i might dress up in February for Fastelavn, where we beat the shit out of a barrel (that used to contain a cat in the not-so-olden days) with sticks until someone puts a paper crown on the winners head.
And then we go door to door begging strangers for money that we later spend on the good candy.
You know, like civilized folks do.

  1. Ja, lad os da for hulan holde en fastelavnsfest i år?! Er er noget sjovere end at klæde sig ud, så har jeg ikke hørt om det.

    Jeg overgav mig for første gang lidt til Halloween i år, da jeg i forgårs mødte et farligt spøgelse, en mumie og en heks på gaden, alle under 1 meter og 20. Surt for en voksen at blive påduttet endnu en kommerciel højtid, men fedt for ungerne at gå rundt i mumiekostume og æde slik. Det ville jeg også have gjort, hvis jeg var lille. Og er det ikke det, det handler om?

  3. Det er da mega bonus for børnene med to klæd-ud dage om året, det er de voksne jeg synes går lidt amok.
    Her i blog-universet har hver anden post på min læse liste handlet om Halloween i lidt for lang tid.
    Og ikke om hvad folks unger skal være klædt ud som!
    Det er også fint nok, sjovt er det jo, men der har altså været mere ståhej end sidste år.

    Men jeg er nede med en fastelavns fest!

    It reminds me of a Bunny costume my mom made me as a kid (only mone was completely different, but i can still remember how much i loved wearing it!)
