I don't mind giving out candy, but around here people bring the kids in cars, some years we had over 100 kids. That's just too much.

@StarzAbove Lucky you, I hate Halloween.

Lol - it is really for kids (for teens, it might be boring), and I know that it involves a lot of additional work, especially for parents, and mums are still assuming the biggest part, which reminds me of the barbecue joke. Have a good laugh:

When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:
Routine…
(1) The woman buys the food.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along
with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man
who is lounging beside the grill – beer in hand.

Here comes the important part:
(4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.
More routine….
(5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
6 smilie The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

Important again:
(7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.
More routine….
(8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins,
sauces, and brings them to the table.
(9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

And most important of all:
(10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
(11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed ‘her night off.’ And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there’s just no pleasing some women…


In petto:
This might be a backlash after too many sexist's jokes - lol.


And I know that quite a few of my male friends do not have this attitude.

Here in Continental Europe, we have no official Halloween celebrations; it is an imported, rather commercial event for children- lol. On the other hand, many countries are celebrating All Saints' Day.

Oops - when I learnt English in England, "bloody" was considered as a very offensive word - it was taboo, while in many other languages similar slurs do not refer to blood or bleeding, but rather to "negatively sacred" objects - lol. Did that change in England?

Did somebody look into some colourful slurs like:
Ten thousand thundering typhoons! or
Billions of billious barbecued blue blistering barnacles!

Isn't it amazing?

By the way, carving is not easy!

Hobby carvers ought to work with proper tools and equipment and in a safe working environment, for instance a workshop. And, before starting, a thorough course to learn the techniques and the corresponding safety rules would be very helpful.

Have a great Wednesday!

It is amazing indeed.

Never thought about all the options. Makes sense since they are all in the same family.

Grew up with pumpkins, and I am stuck in my ways.

There are many things we are forgetting about, because we are rushing too much.

Here, we are rather focusing on cucumbers and zucchini (if thinking of cucurbitaceae) - delicious - but a tasty squash soup is also a treat!

It has just been ingrained into me. But you just opened up a whole new world. :) I love using vegetables in imaginative ways.

I appreciate very much, when an idea or suggestion is useful.

Arcimboldo's paintings might be another, smiling inspiration:
