I wish we'd celebrate it here in Holland.

This one and several other of your photos evokes the spirit of Halloween quite nicely. You can celebrate it even by yourself, and probably more authentically. You can start a new tradition in Holland!

Well, in a sense, most cultures who believe in the spirit realm do, its just not called the same :p
All Hallow's Eve or Samhain are the other two names!

Is this real smoke?! I am amazed, regardless, with the spooky spirals of it on the left--they look alive, like real ghost emanations..... The skulls around the candle base are a nice touch!

Yes it's real smoke :) I'm not quite sure how it ended up in the spirals, luck I guess ;)

It's not like it's officially celebrated over in germany, either, but the thing is ... you can just choose to celebrate it, right? I go dress up as evil as possible and go on a drinking binge with my friends anyway, who's there to stop us?

It's a shame you don't celerbrate Halloween, you could maybe have some sort of private party instead?
