Halloween is celebrated much the same way with the kids at our school. All regular curriculum is put on hold for the party day. All morning the kids took photos, watched a pumpkin carving demonstration (put on by Shane Teacher and Myself Teacher) and participated in bat pins and Halloween card crafting. Most of the teachers dressed up and ALL of the kids did. We bused over to stand in front of a busy home goods store and stood in lines while parents bombarded the kids. Dozens of moms and aunties were cramming their children's sacks with lollipops and jellies. Well, Korea's got the gist of it. After more picture taking we went back to school for lunch and afternoon activities. It was quite the spectacle.

I could try and describe all of the extravagantness of the show but I think I'll just cheat and link you to a video that shows the best parts from the night.

After fireworks, the 8 of us headed out for for a Halloween night out on the town. It all started at this bar, with the flaming alcohol bottles and fire spitting show, then ended... hmmm... ended... well, we know we made it home safely.
