Halloween Experience!

Prologue: The last two weeks, everybody is talking for Halloween, costumes, pumkins, candies etc. First Thing to Do on the list is the costume. What should I get dressed this year? The kids of my host family had already answered to this question. The boy was about to get dressed the "David Crockett",

                                                          

and the girl a "pioneer girl". After having bought the fabrics and making the costumes as they wished to, it was about time decorating the house. ------------------ >

HALLOWEEN!!! Yes, the day when the kids are dressed up and go from house to house by saying "Trick or Treat" has finally come..

Few hours before going outside and experiencing the Halloween tradition, we had to decorate. WE SHOULD HAVE THE CREEPIEST HOUSE !!! Hahahahahahaha... Curving pumpkins, putting fake graves and skeletons in the garden, fake spiders' web all over are some of the things that we did. ( I thought that putting lights on the Christmas tree was difficult since I tried to put the fake spider's web on the bushes! This was difficult, because it's supposed to be as much realistic as I could. Plus, it needs a lot of stretching and time!! )

Trick or Treat! 
At 18:30 with my host family, we got outside to find the neighbors and start going from house to house. The boys got crazy!! (I could say wild as well!) They were running to take as many candies as they could in 2 hours. During running after the boys, we saw interesting decorations, like the Haunted House of the neighborhood (the entire garage became the Haunted House like the ones at the Fun Parks) ; and mascarades, like two boys got dressed dices or a boy with a beautiful robot costume or a dog dressed up a HOT DOG!!! ( a dog with two pieces of buns on his ribs and a fake sausage with mustard on his back! CRAAAAZZYYYYYY!!! ) .

At the end of this crazy-creepy night, the kids counted their candies. Results: the boy got 99, and the girl around 50!!!

                HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
