Our Halloween night

Filed under: Home and Family,NOVEMBER National Blog Posting Month! — jenz @ 10:38 am

Last night Billy and I went to a Hallelujah Night at one of the local churches. Muzz looked after Daniel šŸ™‚
It was good heaps of children. Good music. Great games. Ok dramas. the theme was “Under the water” so Billy went in his togs.Ā  Excellent sized loot bag at the end. I was very impressed how this church got in behind the organising of this annual event and went did a fantastic job. Unfortunately didnt take my camera. Might be able to put some pictures up in a day or two. There were cameras from the local newspaper there.

This is the sign I put on my gates last night. We had no visitors šŸ™‚ my-sign.jpg

Clicking on the photo will give u a better look at my sign which I intend on keeping for next year too šŸ™‚

  1. I am for one who is against Halloween, for 2 reasons it misleads children now if you tech your kids not to take lollies from strangers why on earth is that Halloween is no different, kids are prone to anything if they get lured into traps with people giving them lollies and its no difference between accepting lollies from stranger danger and lollies from a stranger on halloween.

    I wonder how many bloggers agree with this….

  6. We here in South Africa don’t do the halloween thing, so luckily I am not fazed by it at all and my kids don’t have a clue what it is all about! I caught up on the rest of your posts – you guy’s have been really busy!!!! Glad to hear that you have tasted “boerewors” – it really is yummy, specially if it is cooked on a braai!

    Just love the sign – heheheheheheh! Good on you!

    Take Care

  9. Our church always has a “Trunk or Treat”. Everyone parks in the parking lot, decorates their trunks and kids go from car to car. We also have a dinner and carnival for the little ones run by the teens.

    It’s always fun…and very safe!

    Here from Wendy’s!!

  12. Thanks for your comment….I totally agree about the halloween thing. My husband and I had this exact conversation today–it does seem to undermind everything that you tell your kids every other day of the year.
