Welcome to episode 26 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! After a wonderful week of Art photography with awesome posts, as can be seen in the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 25; if you haven’t seen them yet, please go check them out.
In keeping with the season, as it is getting a little colder in New England and the leaves are turning beautiful colors, this week’s challenge theme is Halloween!
Celebrating Halloween in all its forms has become a larger phenomenon over the past couple of decades; it has grown from an opportunity for young children to go from door to door to proclaim ‘trick or treat!’ and get some candy to a not-so-serious excuse adults to throw a party. From its Celtic origins and integration with Christian beliefs, this holiday has become a lot of fun for many, regardless of its origins; many of us will decorate for the season and even dress up in either an silly or scary costume.
My challenge to you is to share how Halloween, or Dia de las Brujas, is celebrated in your part of the world. Bring your creative minds to the forefront and share your photos and stories!
Here’s a taste from a decoration in front of our house from about six years ago…
A happy pumpkin and some fog make for an inviting twist to the season.
For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
This should be a fun week and we might even learn some new things from each other!
