Punkins at the outdoor market at Sergels Torg a week or so ago
We're going to a costume party. If any of you have seen Stu's facebook lately, you know what he is planning to be. I, on the other hand, have NO idea what to dress up as. And we, as Americans, are expected to be awesome at the whole costume thing (because Halloween is not a Swedish thing, as my classmates have reminded me a million times this week.) But I walked down Drottninggatan yesterday (while soaking up some sun...real sun!) past the party store Buttericks, and there was a LINE out the door. With security guards manning the people traffic!! You can't tell me Swedes *don't* get into Halloween, because those certainly weren't all Americans lining up to get into a costume shop.
So I'm open to ideas. The sun is out again today, so its the perfect excuse to go for a walk to find some costume-making ingredients. Will post pictures if it is a successful endeavor.
In the meantime, happy halloween!
