A friend in Cape Town has resisted the growing trend in South Africa to celebrate the Halloween holiday. My children were out and about last night eating treats, while her son was with his gran, not minding a bit that he was missing out. I’ve just gone with the flow on this one. I would fail dismally if I tried to discourage my children from getting caught up in the hype of this funny eccentric festival.
Here is Halloween in America:
Trick or treaters are gathered for a Halloween celebrations at the White House, Saturday, in Washington. The first family welcomed more than 2,600 children from Washington, Maryland and Virginia schools, and their families, for the Halloween trick or treating at the North Portico of the White House.
