Trick-or-Treating mayhem



I have never seen so many cute dressed up kids in my life.
I have never had so many people in my store at one time before.
I forgot to eat. I forgot to drink. I forgot my name.

We ran out of candy after only 1 hour, so my mom ran to the store.
We ran out again an hour later, so we started handing out cheap
Halloween masks. Less than an hour after that we were out of anything
we could possibly give away. Ms Misantropia vs. Trick-or-Treating: 0-1

People had not read the posters properly, not even the ones helping me out,
not even my mom... So no-one handed in their pumpkins on time.
And some people showed up for Trick-or-Treating as I was closing.

But either than that, it was a complete success!


Here is something you have never seen
It is the Swedish pumpkin queen
And I am here to wish you all
A very Happy Hallowe'en!

  1. Yay Queen of Halloween! Congrats on your success! You did great especially considering how hard it is to organize people and get them moving. I hope next year is even better! :-)

  2. I'm so glad it was such a success!! Sounds like it was great fun :) We also saw some Hallowe'en decorations in shops and bistros in Paris which I wasn't expecting, but I am happy to see it being celebrated over there :)

    1. I actually saw pictures of Halloween events from the French Riviera yesterday, that my aunt sent me :)

  3. I don't know, I'm going to have to say you won this round ;)
    It sounds like such a success! The fact that you were constantly running out of treats to give is a testament to how much you've brought the spirit of Halloween to your area.
    You are the Pumpkin Queen! Wear your crown with pride =D

    I wish there was some way I could've seen the hustle and bustle-- I miss seeing people in a frenzy over Halloween. There isn't anyone that excited for Halloween in this town I live in.

    1. Thank you!
      But, is Trick-or-Treating leaving America and migrating east? Weird...

      Radera
    2. I hope not!
      How dreadful to think, though if that were the case, perhaps heading East will be in my future haha!

  11. Seems like you had a very intersting and funny Halloween, although not everything went as planned! Keep up the good spirit, even if you run out of candy... ;)

    1. Inte direkt - idag är det städning hela dagen, imorgon matlagning och Halloweenfest för familjen... Men det är ju av eget val, måste göra så mycket som möjligt av högtiden! :)

  13. Happy Halloween to you! Our weather was eerie! So much fog and wind!

    SvaraRadera
  14. WoooHooo! How wonderful! I can just imagine you grinning and happy, but wondering what to give next. Did anyone bite into the masks? Just kitting!

    Happy (belated) Halloween!

  15. Happy B-lated Halloween :) Wow, yours sounds like opposite to ours, we stocked up on treats & no one climbed out darkened (actually candle lit) driveway to get them :( we ended up watching RIPD & munching our way through Sherberts, lollies & assorted treats until midnight LOL!
