#517 Halloween brings out all the weird and wonderful



America is a destination that I would love to visit one day, most especially New York or San Francisco. I have heard and apology if the rumors are untrue, that you get used to seeing people wearing strange outfits especially around Halloween, when it brings out something special in these cities.


There would be something really rather magical about going to work and seeing a man dressed in a wonderfully elaborate Captain Hook costume on his way to the office with a hook on one hand and a briefcase in the other. Or seeing a bus go by and inside it there’s a witch dressed in flowing black robes, a tall hat on her head, broomstick in one hand and the other hand holding a  newspaper.
I love that adults get to act like kids again, dressing up in weird and wonderful costumes and acting out their fantasies. I love that kids get to dress up to, pretending they are adults, superheros and princesses and magical creatures.

One hospital that I know in Australia has a particularly delightful tradition at Halloween. They hold  a party for all the children who started out fighting for their lives.  After weeks, or in some cases months, the kids get to go home and start the rest of their life, but every year they come back in their hundreds, dressed as lions and tigers and bears and pirates, to thank the staff who cared for them.

The staff get dressed up as well and there is something wonderful about seeing a Director  dressed as a medieval wench and her husband as a marauding viking. To see all the families, who have been through so much, having such a great time with their kids – kids who almost didn’t make it – is a true gift. It’s a reminder that what we have is so precious that we must never lose sight of how fortunate we are. So why not dress up as a pirate or a scary celebrity once a year and let our your inner demon. There’s plenty of other days for being serious.




Wearing the gorgeous outfit from Valentina E, the stunning shoes by Essenz, the Lovely jewelry from CAE from 'The Deck" which the doors have just opened to let you into My Attic @ The Deck for some serious shopping!
