Halloween/Samhain in Holland. Not so spectacular as in other part of the world..But we have managed to have our own little festivities at home
In the afternoon my youngest daughter and I have been making a hug pumpkin cake. We have used our own muffin recipe (With raisins cinnamon apples oatmeal and sunflower seeds) and filled a large pumpkin mold with the dough. This was the first time we’ve tried this so it was a very exciting moment when we had to remove the mold……
It tasted beautiful as it looks in this picture. I am sure we’ll do this more often.
After the baking we sat down to carve a pumpkin. Well my daughter did the carving and I was watching her being crafty. (Notice the matching nailcolor J)
When our jack-o-lantern was finished he got a beautiful spot in the windowsill:
And last but not least to our great surprise, in the evening when it was all already dark outside, the doorbell rang and there were three children all dressed up for trick or treat. Luckily we had some candy to give them. This was was the first time in my life ever I had trick or treaters at my door J
So slow but surely the spirit of Halloween is hovering over the Low Lands…..
