Although there are no trick-or-treaters in Holland, the 31st of October is still a night for mischief, tricks, and ample treats – you just have to know where to find them ;) This year B and I booked tickets to the Nightmare on the Rozengracht, a pop-up haunted house in Amsterdam’s very own Boom Chicago. Upon arriving we were given a number – our one-way ticket into a house filled with horror and spook. While we waited to be summoned, we were serenaded by creepy tunes, surrounded by dancing ghouls and demons.
We enjoyed a drink and joined in on the merriment – until our number was called and it was time. We wandered into the haunted house, which was understandably a camera free zone. To be fair, I was slightly preoccupied anyways, looking over my shoulder, trying not to get snagged by hands or other terrors groping in the dark. It was an awesome experience, one I would definitely recommend and did not expect to find in the Netherlands!
When B and I got home, we continued our Halloween festivities by carving a pumpkin.
I drew the design v vAnd B did most of the knife-work.In honor of our spooky evening, we made a scared pumpkin. We happily welcomed him into our family, introducing him to our silly ways v v
It was a fun evening, spent making new traditions with one of my old favorites ;)
Happy Halloween everyone!! Xx
