My sister's birthday.


By Kate123

My sister's birthday.

My young sister is a youthful 49 today. Halloween always brings nostalgia. I appreciate many don't like today, but, I remember it when it was one day only, less commercial 🎃

Happy Halloween to you as well Kate.
When we were younger (in our 60's.. :-) we and all our friends had a big Halloween party every year. It was fun .

Happy Hallowe'en, Klahanie! Your annual party sounds like a very good evening had by all! Hoping you all got in to costume too! 🎃

Very colourful decorations there, Kate. I prefer the natural ones rather than all the hideous plastic stuff.

Thank you. Ange. My friend mentioned using them as bird feeders afterwards, scraping them out or leaving some bits for birds.
As long as they're off the ground as not suitable for hedgehogs.
I wouldn't have had a clue.

Lovely colours Kate. These are what I love about autumn. I bought my daughter three gourds and pottery mushrooms for outside. She was an October baby too, like your sister. I hope she enjoyed her Hallowe'en birthday.

Me too, the colours are spectacular Janey.
I hope your daughters liked her little autumn collection for outside 🎃
My sister loved her Hallowe'en birthday as a youngster, still does, but not as eventful!!!

the buy-word these days is monetization...(pun intended) everything is saleable and Hallowe'en has become very commercial here too. since we've been living in the country Hallowe'en has ceased to be a thing... I still carve a pumpkin, though. Pumpkin Pies! yum.. best part of my Hallowe'en as a kid (aside of the candies, of course.) Happy Birthday to your sister! <3

Spot on, Lori! "It's all about the money", isn't it! There's a song from the 90s in there I recall!!
Sadly, it takes that nostalgic, old fashioned feel of things away from us to a fair extent.
Thanks Lori. I'm glad you still manage to enjoy pumpkin carving and pumpkin pie, even out in the countryside where Halloween is a much quieter place.
