Happy Halloween Everyone!!

I have never really been into Halloween, definitely not when I first moved to USA 13+ years ago. I have really gotten more into it the last 5-6 years, especially since I have gotten married. Whoever said Halloween is for children, was definitely mistaken. Yes, Halloween is one of children's most popular, most favorite holidays but it has become so for adults, as well. There are more Halloween parties year after year, especially from Mid-October until October 31st. The pricey costumes, the super-fun Halloween accessories, the high sales revenues at stores like Hallow Town, Party USA or Lover's Lane and such show us all that Halloween is probably the most celebrated holiday in the nation, second only to Christmas. And going all the way out, making sure you have a fun, new and interesting costume, makeup, wigs or whatever else necessary, year after year can make things expensive, however fun.

I didn't grow up with Halloween in Albania. It is after all an American tradition/holiday but it has started to become a celebrated fiesta elsewhere in the world, including Canada, Europe and even my small but fun country of origin - Albania. ;-) 3 years ago during Halloween season in October 2007, I was in Toronto, Canada visiting friends. I was surprised & impressed to see how much Canadians love & celebrate Halloween. There were Halloween parties everywhere, clubs and bars offering prizes for the best costume, as well as a ton of super-skimpy outfits, especially for the girls (in Canada skimpier clothing is more allowed, including exposed breasts and nipples - which I would never do in public, but anyhow to each their own.)

The last couple of years my husband and I have gotten into the Halloween spirit together, because it is DEFINITELY BETTER to celebrate and dress up as a couple, rather than alone. It is fun to come up with costumes to mix & match both of us. The costumes you will see in this post are definitely not the most original ones, probably a little cliche but we loved them anyway. What better than being my husband's personal sexy nurse to his handsome doctor? ;-) Enjoy the photos and Happy Halloween Everyone!! Be safe today and I hope you all had a great & fun Halloween 2010. Now don't eat all that candy & chocolates right away?

P.S. I can't believe October is over and there are only two months left in 2010. How do you feel about that?
Saved the best picture, for last. ;-) Ain't I a real Sexy Nurse or what?! =D
