Halloween party preparations

This is not quite so much about India, except for the cool "packaging" and exotic pumpkins.

These guys are two and a half stories up, and a guy carried BAGS of pumpkins up those stairs, and then another flight up to the roof (some of those we carried one by one, because of a misunderstanding, but when he saw we were doing that, he carried the three remaining bags up).

On the door, the scary house taped to the door is Halloween. The Ganesha and the flower garland is everyday stuff.

The picture of the guy with the glasses (between ghosts) is a guy who's always on the wall, but the glasses came from Albuquerque.

They celebrate Halloween in India? Cool. Or is it just a few of you celebrating it? It is so exciting that you are in India. I am looking forward to reading everything you have to share about it. We plan to go there one day with the kids.

I had no idea either! Thinking the British influence wouldn't matter much (as they don't trick or treat) I wondered...

Have fun!

They don't do Halloween, but Raghu and others of the kids have lived in the U.S. and missed it, so it was about that. Most of the Indians I've met have been to or lived in the U.S.

It was an unschooling group function (homeschoolers, but mostly the unschooling edge of it, I think).

My contribution was American Halloween candy and the overalls, buttons, gloves and hat for the Mario costume. The shirt and the moustache were already here.

I brought some of the decorations, too, I meant to say.
