The pirates take the city.



¡FELIZ HALLOWEEN! Espero que hayáis pasado una noche de miedo, y tened cuidado por si una pirata pelirroja se pasea por vuestra casa en un intento de encontrar el tesoro más buscado de todos: tazas de té, zapatos oxfords y un billete para Edimburgo.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope you all have had a scary night, and WATCH OUT! There is a ginger pirate walking around your house in an attempt to find the most wanted treasure: teacups, oxfords shoes and a ticket to Edinburgh.








Bueno, y ahora volviendo a la realidad, como ya sabeís esta noche pasada ha sido Halloween, y a pesar de que es una costumbre anglosajona, en España cada vez se celebra más (por parte de los jóvenes) sin embargo, lo más seguro, es que si a una persona mayor le dices: “Truco o trato” , no tenga ni idea de lo que estás hablando. Aquí, el 1 de noviembre es el día de los difuntos, y las personas velan por sus seres queridos durante la noche del 31, y van al cementerio a ponerles flores a la mañana siguiente. Yo celebro tanto la tradición española como la anglosajona, porque adoro disfrazarme, asi que esta noche pasada fui con mis amigos a pedir algunos caramelos, y después a dar una vuelta, y lo que más me sorprendió es que me encontré a dos muchachos disfrazados del Doctor (Doctor Who), eso en España es algo muy raro ya que es poco conocido.

Well, now, coming back to reality, as you know last night it has been Halloween, and despite it is an Anglo-Saxon custom , we also celebrate it in Spain, however, usually, if you say "Trick or treat" to an old person, she/he will have no idea what you're talking about. Here, 1st November is “ El día de los difuntos” (the day of the dead people), and people hold a wake for their loved ones during the night of 31st , and then, the 1st , they bring flowers to the cemetery. I celebrate both customs, the Spanish and the Anglo-Saxon tradition, because I love dressing up, so this last night I went out with my friends and we did: trick or treat and then, we hang around, what a surprise! I I found two boys dressed like the Doctor (Doctor who), this is a weird thing in Spain, because he isn't famous, people usually don't know who is the Doctor.  




Sí, los piratas están invadiendo la ciudad, asi que.. ¡id con cuidado!

Yep, guys, the pirates are taking the city, so.. be careful!



P.D.: Muchísimas gracias  a Leah (¡visita su blog!) por dedicar uno de sus post a mi blog.

  1. Lovely pictures! :) Your outfit is really great! :) And we have the same bank holiday ;) I guess it's an international one. Here in Austria it's called "Allerheiligen" (like all of the holy) and it's also popular to go the cemetry for bringing flowers to the graves ..

    have a nice start in November ;)

    with love

    1. Thanks so much Elisabeth! "Allerheiligen" .. it sounds like a beautiful word (fairy word or something) more than a "scary" word haha.
      The same to you!

      With love

  4. might i just say how much i adore you?
    you seem to be the happiest of people. and so adventuresome! i do believe i have gone mad from all these ideas in my head,
    i'm haunted by all the places i wish to go and people i am yearning to meet. it makes me quite sad sometimes, but you seem to embrace it!
    and make it reality. which i truly admire :3 and your costume is just adorable, it suits you so well! i love the entire look, your lovely ginger self,
    the setting, and just the way you write! tis wonderful! i was going to be Oswin.. but then i got lazy.. so.. i didn't do anything.. because i'm lame like a dat.
    BUT i did carve a tardis on me pumpkin and a bow tie too. after i realized.. i dont like carving pumpkins lol it makes me feel like such a failure of an artist!
    oh my im rambling now aren't i.. well... i'm glad you had such a lovely halloween and stay wonderful me love!

    1. Not as much as I adore you (and yours comments! they're always so happy, and mad and blahblahblah)
      I understand you, I would like to visit many places, to meet a lot of people like you, because
      there are a lot of people who could be my friend, who loves the same things I love, and and they're so faaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away from me.
      Wow did you carve a Tardis and a bow tie in your pumpkin? I can't even do a regular eye, or face, haha.
      Thanks so much for make me feel as happy as I'm right now, when I read your comments.
