Here, at home, we don’t celebrate/decorate for Halloween…My little boy thinks it’s just spooky and scary, he has declared he’s not going into any supermarkets till Halloween has passed. And my daughter LOVES to make fun of him. So what twobetter reasons for making believe the date doesn’t exist!?
Instead, we decorate to welcome the new season, maybe the shortest one but the most awaited back in my hometown. The arrival of Autumn brings a change in weather so needed in a place where approximately from May all the way through mid-October they have temperatures going up to +100F.
Now that I’m living in a city with mild weather, you could say it’s kind of mediterranean weather with a huge shot of pollution (there are good days and there are not so good days) the arrival of Autumn is not that noticeable but WE know, calls back home inform us that the weather is starting to change and WE REJOICE FOR THEM!!
So, LET’S CELEBRATE AND DECORATE!!
THESE ARE SOOO TOTALLY DO-ABLE…you can even have your children participate!
the basics (bet you can find everything at your local craft store)
the specifics (at local supermarket)
-corn + husks (hoja de elote)
-acorns or any other NUT (the edible kind! ja)
