CAPS weekly blog 29th-31st October


This week was all about Halloween. I gave a presentation on the history of Halloween and how it has been influenced by Christianity and other religions and cultures. We talked about why people dress up in costumes, where “Trick or Treat?” comes from, and other traditions that are now common in North America. And what would Halloween be without a little chocolate reward?


This week we finished our Halloween crafts and on Wednesday the students taught ME about Castañada. I tried my first castaña (chestnut in English), I watched the 3rd and 4th years perform the Polka, the 5th years make beautiful Mandalas and the 6th years fix Panellets, yum!
