Halloween originated in Ireland several thousand years ago, this holiday is a big deal to some of the Irish. They enjoy it in a different way than we do in America, back home we enjoy carving our pumpkins and having tons of candy to eat/pass out to the kids-here, they enjoy it more for the creepiness. Also, the young teenage boys have bonfires in the neighborhoods-that will be entertaining! So to lighten up the holiday a bit more, Natalee and I volunteered at several playgroups each day and did face/hand painting for the kids. It was enjoyable for the kids and their parents to have us paint pumpkins, cats, ghosts, or spiders on their children. For the not-so-brave kids, we had stickers to give them!
Here Natalee is painting a little boy's hand....he was Michael Jackson, he took his costume off..
And here "Buzz Lightyear" is painting my hand...he was precious!
