Halloween is an important part of the Irish culture as it is an original Irish festival, marking the time when the bright summer and autumn moves into the darkness of winter. We, the EVS volunteers, were delighted to enjoy Halloween this year!
Over the past few weeks, we saw the shops and houses decorated with skeletons, pumpkins, spiders and their webs, bats and all the scary stuffs you can imagine.
We also enjoyed decorating our home with spiders, bats, a black cat and obviously, a magnificent Halloween pumpkin proudly carved by ourselves!
A lot of Halloween events took place in County Leitrim and we enjoyed a Halloween party in a pub in Carrick-on-Shannon. Finally we went to the “Haunted House” in Drumshanbo during Halloween night. In the darkness of the labyrinth, people dressed up like monsters and creepy creatures emerged from nowhere, with frightening noises and screams. What a creepy experience!
Even the weather on Halloween night seemed to be in a scary mood, with fog, yellow moon and frost!
Now we can say that we have had the creepiest and best Halloween in our lives!
