So today is Halloween. My kids didnt realize it until I told them yesterday when I was cuddling with them in bed that tomorrow is Halloween! And what was their reaction? They wanted to stay in bed and sleep because they think the day would go faster when they did. I convinced them to go to kindergarten but they were too excited waiting for nightfall.
My husband was playing with the idea of bringing the kids to the Burg Frankenstein, but I convinced him to wait until next year.
The "Burg Frankenstein" is the original castle ruin that inspired Mary Shelley to her world famous novel "Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus" The annual Halloween Festival at Burg Frankenstein takes always place the last two weekends of October and the first weekend of November plus the Halloween day 31 October. It is an outdoor event inside the castle’s walls.We've already visited the place one summer in 2004, but of course, it looks like a normal castle during that time. Next year might be the best time to attend the Halloween party, I hope that the kids would enjoy and not stay screaming the whole time we are there. Meanwhile, I have some lollies for the witches and ghosts and monsters that would be ringing the doorbell tonight.
Halloween is a new thing here in Germany but it is fast becoming a popular tradition. You know what they say here instead of 'trick or treat' they say, 'süsses oder saures' (sweet or sour). I dont know why though.
