Halloween: not only abroad now                              

Picture taken tonight in my street - beautiful pumpinks  along an Italian streeet and children playing and asking for sweets. 

Halloween is now part of  a cultural tradition that goes beyond the USA and  the English speaking countries : tonight my street presented pumpinks almost near every building,at windows  and by the main entrance to houses. I live in Italy and the tradition came  some years ago, it was mainly shared by many American soldiers who were living in my country. In the last 10 years  Halloween has become part of our life and children and young  people now go to Halloween parties.
