Halloween in Switzerland

November 1, 2013

So. Halloween isn't really a thing in Switzerland. It is catching on (slowly) but mostly it's something the foreigners do. Luckily, Coco's godmother is from California and LOVES Halloween, so we had a really fun time yesterday. I was delighted that Coco's pumpkin costume from last year still fit. ;)
We went over early and helped Noel set up the party. She had oodles of decorations, balloons, jack-o-lanterns and goodies. My favorite was the dead flowers in vases and the green champagne glasses. 
Once it was dark, it was time for trick-or-treating. The jack-o-lanterns and mini graveyard in the front yard looked amazing!
Coco was over the moon she was so excited! She loved being outside in the dark.
She got right in there with all the big kids and exclaimed, "Trick-or-treat!" And it was adorable to hear her say, "Danke viel mal" to everyone in return.

At the first house, the moment the woman opened the door, Coco started to go inside. Ha! That took a little explaining. And then the woman got a bit flustered because she didn't have any candy! (I haven't seen any Halloween candy at the few grocery stores we tend to go to, so I'm not sure if it's being sold here or not.) Throughout the night, we noticed a trend, when people didn't have candy, the default reaction was to rush into the kitchen, grab a box of store-bought cookies and then hand it to one of the moms. I think the kids would have been much happier if they'd opened the box and put one cookie into each of their baskets, but the whole concept is lost on them. In particular, the older generation has no idea what this Halloween business is all about! By the end of the evening, we had five boxes of cookies. ;)
After all that fun, Coco fell asleep in my arms on the train on the way home. She transferred comfortably to her buggy and looked so sweet sleeping there in her little pumpkin costume. But, I didn't move her right away. I just enjoyed that feeling of my sweet little two-year-old bundle of love snoozing happily in my arms while we zoomed along. What a perfect Halloween. These are certainly precious days. 

Happy weekend and see you back here Monday! xo
