The Halloween party for my English Clubs was a success! Although most Ukrainian students know what Halloween is thanks to American movies, they haven’t actually celebrated it before. The mostly 15-16 year old kids enjoyed dressing up in costumes, or at least painting their faces. We carved a couple of pumpkins, provided by my English teaching friend Luda, and played pin-the-face-on-the-jack-o-lantern. We paraded around the school trick-or-treating and got a total of 3 pieces of candy. I told them the poem, “there was a dark, dark wood…” and scared everyone with the final line! We took lots of pictures and ate yummy cupcakes. (A special shout-out here to Carolyn and Brice, who sent fun H-ween items!) Now the question is: what should we do to make it bigger and better next year??!
