Overhere we don't have Halloween, but we do have something called 'Sintermaarten' that is in some aspects a bit like it. Kids go with nice self made lights from door to door, sing a song and receive candys (or fruit ..and you can be sure the kids don't appreciate that). The event is on 11 November.
On the Monster: I very well remember when I saw it for the 1st time on here, after Kuna got it back from the painter. Defo were impressed. Kuna did a great job on that.
