Bringing Halloween in Oz

Before flying to Australia, the organizers of the Unschooling conference asked me if I would help them bring the American holiday of Halloween to the families attending the conference. I shared that I would be happy to organize Trick-or-Treating and share with the conference attendees what it entailed. To see most of these kids so excited to experience Halloween for the very first time was magical!! Also, seeing Halloween celebrated in such a non-commercial way was inspiring. I loved giving out "lollies" (what the Aussies call candy) and American change when I ran out of lollies.
