Holding up Halloween: NJ and Stockholm style

New Jersey is doing what we do here every year: putting Halloween on the day that is more convenient.

New Jersey kids will have to wait until Monday with so many homes in the state are on generators or without power altogether in Frankenstorm’s aftermath. You can’t leave your front porch light on when you have no lights. Or when your driveway is blocked by a fallen tree. Or when your street is under water.

Our kids will work the immediate neighborhood on Friday evening. Our street’s tradition is to organize day and time. As a result, neighbors are prepared and homes are decorated.

True that in the US, since everyone (except NJ this year) sends the kids around on Halloween night (October 31st) you get the same result. But here in Sweden, the trick-or-treat tradition is still in its formation stage. I did hear that many kids were out this evening, though we didn’t get any.

We’ll just have to hang on until Friday. And New Jersey, you have a safe Hallween on November 5th!
