Happy Halloween !
Happy Halloween! This is my first jump into the blog-thing. Almost 20 years ago Halloween day, I got engaged , which lead to settle in US as a potter.
Halloween, I do not get the idea fully. I have never experienced the trick&treating myself as a child. I made many custumes for my daughter and carved pumpkins. I wish I had a chance to go out and counts so-many candies afterward. It is fun watching kids with costume and decorations. In Japan, we have "Obon", which is the days in August our ancestor's' spirits come home. I remember making a small ban fire and making smokes in front of the house for welcoming the spirits. I do not know these customs still exists. It has been long since I had the summer in Japan.
Trick or Treat !! Happy Halloween!
