Halloween, although big in the states, is hardly a big deal in South Africa.
However, pretty much everyone I know loves to dress up, so Halloween gets her fair share of celebrating, despite that fact that you won't see pumpkins or skeletons decorating any lawns. It's actually mainly the dressing up that we partake in, and that's about it. (Some kids trick or treat but they have to visit quite a few houses as many folk forget to buy sweets as the shops here don't make a fuss over halloween candy)
This year we headed to a friend's beach cottage down in Umzumbe for a little shindig. I didn't take too many pics, but I did instagram a few...
