Halloween is slowly catching on in Norway.
Every year there's an ever wider selection of cheap black and orange tat to be purchased in the cheap seasonal, tat stores. Every year there are more and more neighborhoods where it is accepted--expected, even--practice for children to dress up and bang on doors demanding free candy. This year there was even a sort of Haunted House put on by Elder Miss and Boy's school; apparently, one of Elder Miss's teachers was roped into donning a ratty black wig and white robe, and screaming "Help me! Help me!" while one of the 7th graders chased her around with a plastic ax. Awesome, I say. And not the least bit inappropriate.
We celebrated Halloween night with The Vibrant Ms. M's family.
