Watermelon Jack-O-Lanterns

Halloween has always been a big deal in our house.  I actually like halloween better than Christmas!  We love decorating, carving pumpkins, and dressing up. Halloween is so much fun!

Since Thailand doesn’t celebrate Halloween we decided to throw our own party!  We invited two other traveling families and celebrated together tropical style!

We carved Jack-O-Lanterns out of watermelons and some sort of cucumber-like vegetables.

Who needs pumpkins?

Dressing up was mandatory which forced us all to get creative with our costumes.  I was so impressed with how awesome the costumes were considering we all made them from supplies from the stationary and housewares stores!

We shared a lovely meal, ate candy, and played games…..

Bobbing for apples in the pool!

Got it!

I must say I am loving creating our own traditions while we are traveling.  Carving a watermelon Jack-O-Lantern will probably become and annual tradition for us!

Of course the best part of the day was the company.  It has been our experience that there is an instant connection between us and the other traveling families we have met.  We all have in common a love of traveling and an out-ot-the-box approach to life.  We all dream big dreams and work to make those dreams our reality.  It’s easy to make friends with people who we have so much in common with!

How did you spend your Halloween? Have you started your own holiday traditions while traveling?

    We dont do Halloween in Australia, yet our boys LOVE dressing up so they got to go to a party with friends for their very first Halloween. They loved the lollies, and the games.

      I guess Halloween is just a North American thing. Dressing up is so much fun!
