Oh I am a neglectful bitch. Not one blog post in the past three weeks. But if you’re reading this, then you’re truly a loyal reader, who has it in their hearts to forgive my abandonment of Belly Rumbles. Not a regular reader? Then you’re obviously here for the Halloween goodies giveaway, and welcome!
You may have seen my escapades in social media over the past few. I was in the USA visiting some amazing out of the way places, as well as Chicago and New York. Driving in Manhattan was, let’s say, an experience I never want to repeat. It would make a great Halloween activity, spine tingling scary and white knuckle generating.
While we are embracing Spring, our American cousins are embracing Fall (or as we know it Autumn). For the first time I actually understand why they call it fall. I had the pleasure of walking under a tree as it shook off its browned leaves all over me.
Actually they seem to get a little ‘Fall crazy’. Visit the shops and you will see aisles of fake autumn leaves, pumpkins and other ‘fall like’ decorations. It reminds me of an autumnal version of Christmas. There are things to put out in your front garden, hang on your front door and seasonally decorate your house. This Aussie girl doesn’t quite understand the passion, but hey, each to their own and they seem to have fun with it.
Alongside the Fall decorations are a slew of Halloween ones. Oh how they also love this spooky festival. Again, we Aussies don’t embrace Halloween in the same way. We are slowly starting to celebrate it a little more, but nowhere to the same capacity.
The shops have the most amazing collection of Halloween paraphernalia on offer. It’s hard to fathom the range, and I really was like a kid in a candy store, it was really awesome! Adult costumes abound, you could dress up as a giant whoopee cushions, or M&M, and you could even pick up a hot dog costume all at staggering reasonable prices.
There are decorations for miles. With such a vast range hosting a party would be a breeze. Then there is the seasonal candy that floods the shops. The usual popular brands in flavours like caramel apple, candy corn, pumpkin. Candy shaped like ghosts, pumpkins etc, the variety was mind-boggling.
