This past week we celebrated Halloween and Magosto, or Castañada at school. Magosto is a traditional festival in Northern Spain celebrating the importance of chestnuts prior to the arrival of corn and potato.
The week prior to Halloween, Vanesa, Carla and I prepped games and arts and crafts for the children.
Paper ghosts made by the 5 year olds!
The teachers set up a Halloween exposition. The hallways were decorated with pumpkins made by the students, a photobooth, and other spooky decorations. The children absolutely loved it!

Maria Jose + Vanesa dressed up as brujas
Pumpkins made by the students! They’re so creative!
Celebrating Halloween outside of school included of going over to Ryan’s for a potluck dinner. We each made a dish to share and enjoyed some wine and licor café. Once dinner was done, we all went out in our costumes. Overall, it was a pretty solid Halloween!
