Round Up of The Changing Seasons, September 2022

Although I did not grow up with Halloween traditions (not an occasion that Singapore commemorates till recently), it has become an annual event in our household.

When the children were younger, their Girl Scout troops would have their Trick or Treat celebrations. We were the family that dressed up & trooped to the Ben & Jerry’s as they gave out free scoops for anyone in costume. Now that we are all older, it is the Cutie Scary Tea that remains: we have baked this week in preparation for our gathering with grandparents.

Black-bottomed cupcakes (this batch was gifted) & Ghosty Cheesy Fougasse were made earlier this week in preparation for our Sunday tea. Mummy handpies & sausage rolls to come. Much rumination about dressing up going on as well.

Do you have any Halloween traditions?

Note: Feature photo was captured during a run this week; we thought the bats & spiders extremely scary cute!

  1. As soon as I saw the Halloween decorations in Singapore, I clicked over to see how it is over there. I feel like Thailand has definitely started to celebrate it. I mean, besides the young kids in bars and dressing up. I was surprised to see coffee shops and restaurants in our little town with Halloween decor!

  2. Oh goody! We’re having a Halloween version of Changing Seasons. I have SO many pictures. October is our biggest photo month every year . I’m going to have to be ultra-selective because the volume is overwhelming — even to me and I haven’t processed even 1/4 of the pictures we both took.

    1. I hear you – when I lived in Texas, the neighbourhood kids would come around for trick or treats. I turned off all my lights and hunkered down for the evening so they wouldn’t knock on the door. When the kiddies came around, for some strange reason, they decided they just had to dress up for the occasion – they certainly have a more macabre streak in them than I do.
