There are many games the Irish would play during this time of the year. Many they still play today. Some of the things they still do are build bonfires and set off fireworks once believed to chase away evil spirits.
In the weeks leading up to Haloween, the Businesses, restaurants, and towns went all out decorating for Halloween. One town we went through had all kinds of scarecrow decorations. They were some of the most amazing ones I've ever seen. There were hundreds of them. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any clear pictures as we were driving past. My favorite one, however, was a horse head sticking through a hedge with its rider sprawled on the ground.
At the "Y" us Taylor students held our own party.
Everyone had amazing costumes!
Like eating donuts without using your hands...
|I think we failed ...|
It was a great night. I hope you had as happy a Halloween!
