Happy Halloween!

No costume this year since I couldn't make it to the Habitat Party (although I did buy a ticket in support!). But, I've been enjoying getting my students interested in Halloween with a few language related activities. I think they actually just wanted to win the sweets that were on offer. And who could blame them. I actually found some pop rocks! I thought they'd long since been banned for some ridiculous reason or another, but there they were in my local supermarket, made in Spain. Good ol' Spanish! those guys know how to live.
I've been noticing that the pumpkins in the US are now huge. I was only hoping to find a minikin to carve since Japanese pumpkins, kabocha, are too hard. But, as Mr. P says, "Everything's bigger in America.". http://www.bigpumpkins.com/viewarticle.asp?id=115&gid=32

BTW, although it is cooling off, we are still waiting for snow so we can go skiing.
