Ghouls over Harrison Avenue

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 29 October 2020 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Ghouls and ghosts hover high above Harrison Avenue in Brookfield, Illinois. It's been an annual tradition to hang these from the trees (and over the street) for some time. This stretch of street is decorated to the nines with so many houses and lawns adorned with Halloween decorations.

Happy early Halloween!

Halloween is a fairly new tradition in Finland. Next Saturday, we will remember our deceased by bringing to the graves candles and heather that will withstand the cold weather. That's our old tradition. The shops also feature masks and other Halloween-related decorations in the American tradition.

Halloween and its ghosts have a special resonance this year with COVID 19 ...... !!!

I don't think this was celebrated here in my childhood. We remembered 5th November and the Gunpowdrer Plot. Magnificent decorations

I don't really grasp Halloween myself. Trick or treat comes across to me as a form of extortion. Perhaps I'm missing something but the Mexican day of the dead seems a much more understandable event. These are nicely done though and the autumn colours make a beautiful backdrop.

Yes. When we had our little village house in Spain, many of the families would come up to the local cemetery to attend to the graves and replace the flowers (unfortunately mostly plastic :) and there would be a service held. Our terrace overlooked much of the village and the cemetery and one year while the service was in progress several Griffin Vultures appeared one by one to circle above the congregation, before swooping off. An amazing moment

Des fantômes "d'opérette" ou plutôt "comédie musicale" qui font la joie des enfants et des adultes en cette période "Halloween", ou il est bon de se faire peur...

wow - I lived on Jefferson between Harrison and Cleveland in the 1960s and 1970s. We decorated, but I don't remember any neighborhood effort to go all out, but it has been a while (ha ha).

Happy early Halloween. I like the tradition of decorating the houses. Here in the Netherlands, Halloween is increasingly on the rise, but it is not as celebrated as in other countries. The children don't go trick or treating on Halloween here either. Here we have Sint Maarten. Then the children, with lanterns in hand, go to the doors to pick up sweets, singing. Due to the pandemic, this tradition cannot continue this year.
