Painted Pumpkins


It is believed by many people that on October 31st, that is tonight, you will likely see witches, ghosts, goblins, skeletons, demons, and other evil characters knocking at your door and hollering "trick or treat", and they will expect a treat or you will be tricked. There will be parties where kids bob for apples, tell fortunes, or go through haunted houses. There will be decorations of jack-o-lanterns, witches on brooms, and black cats. It is the only day of the year when people give free food to strangers and display carved vegetables on their front porches. . . .when you really think about it, October 31st is a very strange day/night . . .this is how halloween party is celebrated here in Nebraska. I am curious about it and tonight, I am about to experience it.

For fun, I painted pumpkins and hope you will like it.

In Asia, there is the ghost festival. Very similar culture, yeah!
