HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! NOW YOU KNEW I WAS GOING TO POST SOME OLD HALLOWEEN PICTURES CAUSE BY THE TIME I DOWNLOAD THE ONES FROM THIS YEAR IT WILL BE NEXT HALLOWEEN! I love Halloween!!! It is by far my favorite holiday. Our first year living in Grosseto, I realized they didn't celebrate Halloween in Italy when I dressed up Jordan as a smurf and myself as a witch and people kept giving us rude stares. Did I care? Heck no! I just marched my little smurf around town and smiled at all the rude stares. My how things have changed...now it's Halloween night at the disco, kids have begun "trick-or-treating," and I just went dressed up as a witch to teach my pre-school class. When I arrived, I was shocked! There were jack-o-lanterns, electric pumpkins, black cats and hanging toilet paper ghosts. A couple of kids were even dressed up as a warlock, werewolf and ghost. Today we have a Halloween party in the town center where kids will be running around spraying shaving cream and silly spray because they just can't take the CARNIVAl out of Halloween, they have to mix it in there...I'm not complaining, cause in eleven years in Italy, we have made some serious progress! BOO!
