Halloween in Norway?

Halloween (one of my favorite holidays) is unfortunately not celebrated here, so I have had to come to terms with the fact that I won't be dressing up, carving pumpkins, or giving out candy this year. (It wasn't pretty.)

I was wandering aimlessly at the grocery store yesterday, lamenting the lack of Halloween decorations, when there, in a crate, sandwiched between the purple grapes and the onions, were 4 pumpkins!!! It was one of those clouds parting, choir singing moments, when everything in the world just falls into place...sigh.

Anyways, I bought 3 immediately, and tonight was our carving night! It was a first for Anne and Ole Martin, and I think they had a good time! Well, Anne did. After scooping about 3 handfuls of pumpkin innards, Ole Martin called it quits. I took over the carving duties after he went to bed, so tomorrow he'll get to meet his new friend, Vegard. :)
