Haunted Humpday * Corner View ~ Tradition

Halloween is almost here, the excitement around here is palatable. This is our last Haunted Humpday and I would like to thank Marfi for hosting the festivities and getting us all in the spirit since September. I got to choose the theme for corner view this week and tradition came to mind. Stop by  Francesca's and enjoy tradition from around the globe.

 October is full of traditions, birthdays, anniversary, and Hallow festivities for my family. A trip to the pumpkin patch is a must. This year we enjoyed a free festival put on by a church.

 My pumpkins with their pumpkins.

One last trip to the Drive-Inn before it's too chilly. We watched "The Book of Life", a great movie displaying Mexican culture and Dia de los Muertos celebrations.

True children of the corn!

We love to decorate our front porch. This year a few basics were displayed, I seem to have displaced a mass majority of our Halloween decor.

The mummy managed to re-emerge just in time.

Even my dogson Chico get's into the Halloween spirit.

The pumpkins have been brought inside because somebody smashed a few of ours in the street last night. Tonight we will have a pumpkin carving party. We watch a fun Halloween movie or two depending on how long it takes while we carve. Treats and laughter are apart of this tradition.

Nov. 1st and 2nd we celebrate Dia de los Muertos. I don't have an ofrenda up this year but might throw something together to share with you. We will be visiting the graveyard to celebrate our ancestors.

I hope you enjoyed a little peek into our Halloween traditions. Best wishes for a Spooktacular fun filled Halloween.
