Happy Hallowe’en! (Part 1)
Growing up in Canada, I loved Hallowe’en. We celebrated it in school with fun activities, and then in the evening in our neighbourhoods. Everyone enjoyed dressing up in cute or scary costumes and, of course, going around to many houses and, after saying ‘trick or treat!’, getting lots of candy. What a thrill it was to come home with a big bag filled with chocolate, potato chips, and all kinds of yummy sweets. Nowadays in North America people spend a lot of time decorating their homes and gardens for Hallowe’en. The displays are really amazing.
Here at Eiwa this past week we have also been having lots of fun getting into ‘’the Hallowe’en mood” by decorating the English Café and hallway near the library with all kinds of traditional symbols of the season such as jack o’lanterns (=pumpkins) and ghosts. I’d like to say thank you to the many students who helped out making and setting up the decorations. Happy Hallowe’en!
