Next Tuesday the 31st of October is Halloween. Yes, we know that it is not a typical festivity of our island but more and more neighbourhoods of Palma and towns like Consell are joining in with the costumes and candy on this terrifying night.
In Mallorca, the tradition of decorating our façades and doors for Halloween has become a growing trend. Although we are still many years away from being on a par with the United States, more and more people are joining in this imported celebration. In this article, we will show you some ideas for Halloween decorations that you are sure to love.
Halloween, originally a holiday of Celtic origin, has taken on a new meaning in recent years in Mallorca. As American culture expands globally, the celebration of Halloween has become more popular on the island. More and more families, businesses and communities are participating in the fun, creativity and spooky atmosphere that this holiday offers.
Doormats also come alive on this night...
Pumpkins carved with scary faces and lit with candles are an essential element of Halloween decoration. You can place them on your door or windows to welcome visitors with a spooky touch.
Place ghost and bat garlands on your windows and doors to create a mysterious atmosphere. You can make them yourself or find them in decoration shops.
Fake spider webs and plastic spiders are classic Halloween decorating elements. Place them in the corners and nooks of your facade for a touch of horror.
Create a unique and spooky scarecrow to scare off intruders. Use old clothes, a spooky mask and place it in your garden or driveway.
Replace your outdoor lights with orange, purple or green Halloween lights. This will create a festive and eerie atmosphere.
Place skeletons or zombie figures in your garden to give the impression that the dead have risen - it's a classic that never goes out of style!
Add a touch of atmosphere with spooky background music. There are playlists available online that you can use.
Take a look at these fun dishes, some of them are very easy to make with just a few ingredients. Kids love them and the not-so-kids love them too ;)
In Mallorca, Halloween is an opportunity to join in the fun and celebrate as a community. Whether you are a local resident or a visitor, participating in this American tradition can be an exciting experience. So, go ahead and start planning your Halloween decorations. Surprise your neighbours and friends with a scary facade and enjoy this unique holiday on the island.
