After Halloween, there are several special Holidays waiting in line for celebration. I know it’s still early to worry about that when we haven’t celebrated Halloween yet but won’t it be nice to be a bit prepared for them in advance? Why not, right?

Non-Pumpkin Jack O’ Lanterns

If you’re an expat like me who is transplanted in the Middle East, then there are other holiday occasions that you just can’t celebrate the same way you do back home.  It’s only lately when the Philippines caught up on the Halloween fever but other countries are already celebrating this spooky event with much gusto for the longest time!

So, living in other parts of the world where Halloween is not as famous as it should be, and when pumpkin is not a staple, you have to be innovative if you want to decorate your home without the usual pumpkin Jack O’ Lanterns.

Here are some ways to still have that Jack O’ Lantern decor in your home without using a pumpkin. You’ll be surprised to know that many fruits/vegetables and other materials can pass as your cute or spooky Jack O’ Lantern.

It’s fast approaching! I think you know what I am talking about. Most people enjoy this occasion because people can dress up (even the pets!), wear tons of make-up, and be someone else even for just a day – and that is during Halloween!

Halloween entails spooky, out-of-this-world get up, decorations, and sumptuous treats to give out to the cute trick-or-treaters. For sure, even the furry pets get their dress up moments much to the amusement of everyone.

On top of the exciting things that Halloweeners do to celebrate this fun event, the weather is as inviting as it should – cold, damp, gray, and weary. All elements of making the season more spooky than ever!

Plenty of adults will be preparing parties to host so their family and friends can enjoy the on-day make-believe-and-dress-up day. Who wouldn’t be excited?

And then there’s the decorations? That is one of the most thrilling part of the occasion.  The ghoulish your decoration gets, the better! Also, fright factor is a big consideration to scare off the little guys. Hey, that’s what Halloween is all about!

Halloween is fun! It is entertaining. It promotes artistry and enhances creativity too. It unites a community through parties and other social events pertaining Halloween. It certainly brings out the child in you.
