Halloween at home 2020

When I was a child, I always loved fairy tales. I devoured every book of fairy tales that I could get hold of, not just mainstream ones that every child in the world has probably read or watched. I read fairy tales from all over the world (which probably would classify more as folk tales or legends).

I see Halloween as living in fairy tales in real life (although my imagination is really the one responsible for this fantasy). I love how the neighborhood patios and gardens transform into little lands of make believe during the month of October. And on October 31st, little princesses, goblins, action figures (well, they are not really part of my childhood fairy tales), monsters, etc come prancing around and knocking on our doors asking for candies. Halloween brings out my inner child who believes that goodness always triumphs over evil. I just love the coziness of this season.

We do not get a lot trick-or-treaters on my street. I blame it on my neighbors being lazy. They might put a pumpkin on their patio but that’s about it. We either get very small kids early in the evening or big kids a little later at night after they already made their rounds in the fully-decorated neighborhoods. However, I still wait for the kids and always ready with a basket of full-size candy bars. Yes, full-size Snickers, Hersheys, Kit Kat, etc! It is so worth it to see the kids’ faces light up whenever they realize that they are getting big candies and not the usual mini ones.

As always I decorated the house and enjoy the coziness of being surrounded with fairy lights, pumpkins, jack o’ lanterns, skeletons, etc. and the decorations that I have been collecting over the years.

We decided that we will not be turning on the patio light this year for safety from the coronavirus. Sadly, we will not be giving out candies. Mr Sweetie and I might order pizza for delivery, pop some corns and watch Halloween movies. I am sure that we will end up eating the candies that were meant for trick-or-treaters.

We did not buy full size candy bars this year. Just mini ones for us.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I did not decorate my patio this year. I just put these in my backyard instead.

Welcome to Deliciously. My warm and snug little space in this big, wild world. This blog is about my everyday life in San Francisco (where I work) and Oakland (where I live). I strive to live a life that is full of gratitude, coziness and simple joys. This is my personal journal and photo album where I post photos of lovely things that I capture on camera, travels and delicious meals that I share with my family and friends. Just a simple, happy blog. Thank you for stopping by! -- L www.autumnbaygal.blog

  2. I love your Halloween decorations, especially the pumpkins and candles! 😃🎃 The ambience you’ve created looks very cozy, and it certainly represents the season beautifully! Trick-or-treating is rare in my corner of the world, but we do love all the treats and the decor. Here, Halloween treats are stocked up at home by anyone who enjoys Halloween, but for their own consumption and perhaps distributed among friends! It’s always fun to see children in cool costumes while they’re playing with one another on Halloween. I hope your Halloween festivities will be back to normal next year, and I hope you have a wonderful Halloween! Happy Halloween! 🙂

    • Thank you! I love my whimsical Halloween decorations. They make me feel cozy and warm, and bring out the kid in me! 🙂 It was a quiet Halloween as we did not turn the lights on to not get trick or treaters for safety reasons but it was fun nonetheless. 🙂 Hope you got to eat lots of candy!
