The Ghosts, Goblins, And Dark Spooky Nights

It's that time of year again, a time of ghost stories and trick or treaters.

One night in the Glebe I took photos of a Hallowe'en display outside a home. They include your standard ghosts, jack o'lanterns... and Mickey and Minnie Mouse. I have featured this display before.

These are the Hallowe'en decorations at a restaurant patio at Lansdowne.

In Little Italy one day, I heard voices speaking before I turned a corner onto this side street. Inflatable decorations were set up. The voices were automated, coming from the two mechanized figures on the porch, who were both moving for good measure.

And these two shots are from the front window of a second hand shop in Centretown.


  1. Happy Sunday and happy Halloween if you celebrate!

  2. In my town I only saw one privatee house decorated for Halloween and that was probably an American family ! Otherwise you only find a little Halloween decoration in the shop windows, but each year a little more !

  3. Hello,
    We have seen some big Halloween displays, some people go all out decorating.
    Enjoy your day, have a great new week!

  4. Ottawa looks ready for Halloween, and of course there is no shortage of hobgoblins and spooky Tories up on the Hill.

  5. ...Halloween sure has become a decorating opportunity.

  6. @Italiafinlandia: thank you.

    @Stefan: the night when walls between the worlds grow thin.

    @Gattina: it's popular here.

  7. Wow! Can get scary on a dark night!

  8. Some nice scenes. Happy Halloween.
    Halloween is still quite small overhere, and actually I hope it stays that way.

  9. People are going all out with decorations!

  10. Spooky times in our neighbourhood too.

  11. I don't decorate for Halloween, but I remember how much fun it was to go trick or treating when I was a child.
    I hope this new week brings a lot of good things to you!

  12. Some very creative people put a lot of effort into Halloween decorations.

  13. It's amazing how many people decorate for Halloween!!

  14. Not so spooky around here, maybe because students are really hunkered down right now getting their school work done.

  15. Fun Halloween post and great photos ~ ^_^

  24. Those are all great Halloween decorations! I also enjoyed peeking into the windows of the second hand shop. I like to browse in places like that as some nice vintage treasures can be waiting to be found.

  25. Great fun and slightly scary too:)

  26. Halloween is just a fun holiday and seeing these just make me smile big -- even if it's a couple of days late!

  27. I love seeing people's decorations! That ghoul near the top is especially scary!
