Halloween at Riofrío

Like with all things American, Halloween has been accepted into Spanish culture with ever increasing popularity. On October 31st, the children at my school celebrated Halloween with a haunted house, hosted by the 6th graders, which made a lot of the preschoolers cry. Afterwards, classes went trick-or-treating to other classrooms, receiving nuts and dried fruits – Halloween was celebrated in conjunction with a nod to the fall harvest – instead of candy. The kids seemed to love the holiday, even if many of them still think it´s spelled, following the logic of Spanish phonetics, jaloguín. Here are a couple photos from the celebration.
