Happy Halloween Everyone! My favorite season is upon us……Autumn! I must tell you i was not always a fan of this season….I found it depressing and sad. But I guess you could say I have grown into it and now I can not imagine anything better than spending the day outside enjoying the sun and marveling at the fall colors. It just so happens, that my favorite holiday takes place in autumn…..HALLOWEEN! Halloween used to be a foreign concept to germans…they had no idea why we americans would take a pumpkin and carve it and stick a candle in it instead of chopping the thing up to make all sorts of treats! Back in 1991 when we hosted our first party, I had to have the costums and decorations flown in from Chicago, now lots of years later I am able to get everything I need right here in Berlin.(maybe we should have a party? Tonight is a school night so no chance of any sort of party, but my family and I are going to have a the pumpkins glowing, enjoy hot dogs and the grill and maybe even some smores at the fire pit. Life is good and I am going to do my best to enjoy it!
