Happy Halloween! Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. How can you go wrong with costumes, candy, and parties? Bangladeshis do not celebrate Halloween. However, the American community does what it can to create a Halloween experience for its kids. On the 31st the Embassy will host trick-or-treaters at their offices. Today there was a Halloween party at the American Club and afterwards the kids trick-or-treated through expat neighborhoods in a caravan. We decided that four hours of Halloween fun was too much for us. Instead we waiting for the other kids to come trick or treat at our house and then we joined them for a few houses on their route. Odin was a 'night guard' for Halloween. The Embassy employs security guards to keep watch over our houses at night. Odin thinks very highly of these 'night guards' and since he pretends to be a 'night guard' almost everyday, we thought it would make a good Halloween costume. Lily was a Christmas gift.
