TSC - Halloween

TSC - Halloween
The Sunday Challenge = Halloween; some type of Halloween shot, so get the creative juice flowing.. no restrictions this week..
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Dutch history of Halloween is relatively short. Much older is the celebration of St. Martin, together with big bonfires for the children. People gather around the fire, and sometimes hollow pumpkins are used.... Saint Maarten is celebrated on the night of November 10th.
I took a part of an old picture of a St. Martin celebration in our village -you see people standing close to the bonfire- mirrored it (!) and finally added the pumpkin as a halloween moon, I hope you like the result.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Explored, thank you all

In stead of a full moon with werewolfs a pumpkin takes the role of the full moon.
Fine creative idea.

In my experience St. Maarten is celebrated by singing a song by children (often accompanied with parents) on 11-11 and collecting candy

that's right Diederik, but I guess the bonfires aren't allowed in a city centre?

Also here St. Martin is celebrated on 11 Nov, the children go with lanterns through the streets and sing St. Martins songs!

Great idea to combine both traditions - well done!

here in Canada Nov. 11 is to remember our fallen soldiers, we call it Remembrance Day (very original name)

Wonderful processing! The people look like spectres rather than the jack-o-lantern; a very clever take on the theme, Luc! ;-)

Seems quite a few old traditions were blended into new ones over the years ... you've done well with this one Luc. Those people looks like they have been put into a trance by the Halloween pumpkin .... I really like the way this turned out! :)
