I am not particularly against Halloween, but I definitely don't think it makes any sense outside of the US. And I am in favor of saints. So I organized an All Saints party with my neighbor at a local parish. And when I say organized I mean coughed up a few ideas from showerofroses.blogspot.com and aknottedlife.com and she did all the work. And I managed to make us some costumes the night before, barely slept, got really stressed out and was incredibly exausted the next day at the party. And when I say "make costumes" I mean buying some fabric, cutting with scissors and pinning together with safety pins.
But it was so much fun and so worth it. It was a "family environment", as my husband put it, just a few families that became friends through our church play group last year.
