Halloween Canada Style

25 10 2009

Halloween in Canada is a huge event, as it is in all of North America. Television, movies, and other media outlets have helped Halloween grow into America’s second largest commercial holiday, which brings in an estimated $6.9 billion dollars annually.

Shops are full of witches, ghosts, pumpkins and packs of treats for the trick or treaters. People decorate their houses and gardens in a big way before the next big event of Christmas.

I thought I’d take you on a walk around Lunenburg, to give you a taste of our Halloween decorations.

Many houses have witches, pumpkins and apples.


And  pumpkins are used to make various parts of the figures.


Ghosts and skeletons hang from from decks.


Some figures are happier and less frightening.


Even offering apples to the trick or treaters.


Pumpkins can be real or crafted from wood, like these lovely ones.


Other houses have simple, attractive decorations.


My last photo shows the roofs of Lunenburg on this wonderful autumn day.

So glad to have discovered your blog! We’re in Lunenburg often; it’s one of my favorite “destinations”. Congratulations on your 2 year anniversary in NS. We “Maritimers by Choice” should all get together some day! Good luck on your contest entry on my blog.

Great to find your Blog too. We can find out a lot about each other from those and then we’ll recognize each other when we meet up. I’m not a quilter, but enjoyed seeing them at a local craft fair. All the Best. Jackie
