Happy Halloween from Aruba!

Here are some photos around the neighborhood that I snapped before we left for Aruba showing the spirit of Halloween.

Each year we travel to Aruba around Halloween. The Arubans celebrate Halloween in a big way. Everywhere you look you will see signs of ghosts, goblins and things that go bump in the night.

Here are some photos of Halloween decorations that have popped up since we arrived in Aruba.

Tonight on Halloween we walked around to see young children dressed in costumes with their parents. I wouldn’t take their photos for fear the parents would be upset. But they were all so cute.

I hope you had a fun Halloween wherever you celebrated it. Stay safe and well.

Can you believe the photo above? They began connecting Christmas lights on Halloween! Nothing like rushing the holidays! Sigh!
