Ready For Tonight | Valentina Cirasola | Designer and Author

Halloween night tonight. I will make it fun, I am already dressed in my costume and doing the daily work activities.
I must admit that coming from a different country, I never understood this custom of going house to house asking for candies, wearing a “scary” costume. I will receive a herd of kids at my door tonight, some of them are not kids anymore, with a white sheet hanging from the head and two holes for the eyes, they mix with little kids and do what they do, but their height gives them away, they are teenagers or even young adults. I can’t hide the feeling of being skeptical of their intentions or even a bit scared.

A long time ago, when I was still new in this country, I wasn’t yet familiar with all customs and traditions. I noticed all the houses decorated with tombstones, skeletons, and gruesome things, but I didn’t pay much attention. The evening of Halloween, as I passed one of the homes, a tombstone opened up, a real looking dead person came out, a macabre music started and flickering purple, yellow, green lights got turned on. To say I was scared is very simplistic. I turned the car around and went to sleep at a hotel.


In my neighborhood, there are no kids. One year, they came by the busload from surrounding towns and were dropped off at each block. That was surreal!

Anyway, my candies are ready, I am too, and will make it a pleasant night. I will open my doors as a Renaissance woman of the 1300s. I think the costume fits well with my character and spirit.


I will make this rustic food. They are pâte brisée packets filled with Italian prosciutto and gouda cheese.

Happy Halloween everyone. Will you do something special tonight? Ciao,
Valentina
