Halloween treats

Chocolate skulls and the tell-tale heart

Earlier this month when we were in Bruges we stopped into a lot of chocolate shops (there are at least 50) and Bill took photos of some of their window displays including the skulls and raven you see here. Although it’s not a well-celebrated holiday in France, one of our own chocolateries in Carcassonne got inspired as well. In that spirit, we wish you a “sweet” Halloween!



The nevermore raven






Aw, pumpkins and kittens

About Bob

While living in North, Central and South America, in the middle of the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean, and now in Europe, my passion has remained the same: travel and meeting new friends.

  1. Love this! Love the photos. I adore Halloween, especially the old-fashioned joys of witches, Jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, and bats. My children and I used to carve 12 jack-o-lanterns each year on this day – 10 for the windows in the front of the house and two for the doorstep. When I’ve visited the neighborhood at this time of year – I’ve been in Europe for 20 years – as recently as last year people still comment on how they miss our display. In Ireland, where the Jack-o-lantern was invented, children came to our door on Samhain, as it’s known, and sang or played an instrument or recited poetry for their treats – utterly charming. I have seen children in costume going door-to-door in our local large town on the afternoon of Halloween, but none ever come to us in the countryside. Nonetheless, every year my freshly carved Jack-o-lantern stands guard against goblins. Happy Halloween to you both – Boo!
