Halloween in Denmark
This weekend, Natalie, Thomas and I threw a Halloween gathering at our apartment to introduce all of our international friends to this tradition. We served pumpkin cupcakes, caramel apples, pies, and chile. And of course, tons of candy (though the most popular candy in Denmark is licorice which is an unusual Halloween treat). Our guests wore some amazing costumes, and we took over the courtyard of our apartment for a pumpkin carving contest. Inside, we screened classic horror movies all day long: Jaws, Arachnophobia, The Shining, and Poltergeist.
