Halloween in Montreal
I am very slow writing my countdown to Halloween posts. I usually write at least one a day, but not always in English. So here is this evening's one. I took this picture at the entrance of l'Inter-marché on Mont-Royal avenue. They have a display at the entrance, with among other things this Jack O'Lantern looking very much like a scarecrow. I guess a supermarket would play with the harvest associations a lot. But it struck me: here Halloween is everywhere. Every shop has its display, modest or elaborate, houses already have decorations outside and you really feel the day coming.
