Halloween isn’t celebrated in China. It was one of those Western holidays I was content to let just slide by without much of a mention. But our preschool director knew all about it and she was very excited to share Halloween with the families at the preschool. The idea was to have the parents come after work and set up in some of the empty classrooms with candy, ready to open the door to the trick-or-treaters. The teachers made costumes, masks, and pumpkins for the children.

The children presented a “show” for their parents–a choreographed dance number led by one of the teachers (click on the album below to see the videos) and then dressed in the “home-made” costumes. The trick-or-treating was a success and the parents were eager to play along. They brought lots and lots of candy and they had made some pretty elaborate-looking masks for themselves. It was fun to watch them document this occasion with their various cameras.

Afterwards the staff went to one of the numerous karaoke lounges (KTV) to celebrate one of the teacher’s last day at the preschool.
