American Versus Dutch Halloween Culture

Happy Thursday book friends! As I’m writing this I’m still recovering from doing groceries. Or rather, my mom did groceries and I waited outside because I did not feel like getting into a fighting match with all the other shoppers. I really miss those gigantic grocery stores in the U.S… Speaking of the U.S, in today’s post I’m going to compare American Halloween culture to Dutch Halloween culture. I was born on Halloween, and back in the day people here hardly knew what Halloween was. For the first few years of my life I always got Halloween birthday cards from…

Anyway, I’m not defeated so easily, so I thought I’d make a list of Halloween activities you can do while in quarantine! Halloween for me is extra special, because it’s also my birthday. This year I turn 26 (help) and I was really looking forward to organizing another Halloween party for my friends.
