We love Halloween, and this year our building is filled with a bunch of new residents who also love the season. One difficult thing about being an expat, is not being with family and friends back home for these traditional American celebrations. Halloween revelry is a very American thing. (We're trying to spread the fun of it.) There are other holidays and traditions we miss out on too. While we might enjoy the culture and events of our foreign address, it is good to have a close community so we, and our kids, don't have to miss out on the holiday traditions we have loved since our own childhoods. Residents got together, created decorations, games, gathered food and prizes ... very successfully. Much spooky fun was had by all!
Ok, we know that Halloween is NOT until next weekend, but that weekend was already filled with other Halloween activities. This was OUR Halloween activity. Some photos - enjoy:
