A Nantucket Halloween

Halloween on Nantucket is very special because it’s a Holiday for locals!  There are not many holidays that can say that! ;)

With hardly any tourists here on island, it was very special to walk down Main St. and see all of our lovely “neighbors!”

A Nantucket Halloween starts with a parade and then the kids “Trick or Treat” up and down Main Street!  It reminded me of Halloween in the small town I grew up in…

James and I waited until the last minute to decide our costumes.  This is very unlike us.  Usually we know weeks in advance.

So this is what we pulled off in 2 minutes!  I was Alfalfa from the Little Rascals and James was Prince Charming.


Not our best effort! I was Alfalfa because I need a haircut and I didn’t want to style my hair how I usually do and James was Prince Charming because it was the only costume left at Dan’s Pharmacy!

When I was finished getting ready, I found that I actually look a lot like Alfalfa. :)  Don’t you agree?


Some of our friends had a party and I got to hang out with my bestie Emily (Rosie the Riveter).  Just because you live on an island and work together, doesn’t mean you get a lot of quality time every day so it was so great to see her and Steve out and about!

Steve’s “Walter White” costume inspired James and I to start watching “Breaking Bad.”  We are addicted that’s for sure.  We watched almost 3 seasons in 2 days!

Next year we want to have better costumes, but we had a great time with great friends at the party!


That was our first Nantucket Halloween!

See you on Tuesdays!


  1. I loved both of your costumes!! I agree… you made a perfect Alfalfa! And I can’t believe Santi got that Prince Charming costume from the pharmacy! So fun! XO
