Halloween!!
Halloween is almost here!

house


Halloween is one of the most popular holidays in America.

The idea of Halloween is similar to the Japanese holiday of "Obon."

Long ago, Europeans believed that ghosts visited us on November 1st.

Now, Halloween is celebrated on October 31st or the preceding Saturday.

Many people wear interesting costumes to enjoy this holiday.

Some people wear scary monster or ghost costumes.

Some people wear movie, animation or TV character costumes.

Cute, sexy or funny costumes are also popular.

On Haloween evening, from about 5pm to 8pm, children visit houses in their neighborhoods.

They knock on the doors, say "trick or treat" and get candy.

The dark night is too scary for some children (and some parents!) so many shopping malls also celebrate Halloween and give candy to children.

Adults can celebrate Halloween, too.

Many adults decorate their house and wear a costume when they give candy to visiting children.

There are also Halloween parties for adults with drinking and dancing!!

Our English school will celebrate Halloween this October 27th.

Come join us and let's have a great time!!

School Trips
canoe




When I was in High school, we never had any over-night school trips but we had many one-day trips.
My favorite trips were hiking and canoeing trips connected to biology class.
It was fun to play outside with my classmates, away from school.

I also really enjoyed trips to art and history museums.
My high school was near Washington DC so we often went to the world-famous Smithsonian museums near the White House.

My favorite school trip was to an amusement park called Busch Gardens.
My high school crush asked to sit next to me on a roller coaster ride.
I was so surprised and happy!!

家族旅行!!
Family Vacations

camp1


Golden Week is here and many people are enjoying the vacation with their families.
When I was a child, I went on vacation with my family every summer.
My father, brother and I often went camping in the mountains of Virginia.

We put up a tent and made a camp fire.
We cooked our food over the fire.
We also went fishing and swimming in the river.


camp3


There were many insects in the mountains, it was hot in the tent and my brother and I often fought about small things.
But, looking back now, those were really happy times!

Did you go on family vacations as a child?
What did you do?
Were those happy times for you?
