To me every day is Halloween

Admit it, she's adorable!
The Halloween tradition has been picked up a little here in Japan (still I can't figure out why they picked up on Halloween and not Easter with all the cuddly rabbits and chicks). But it's mostly about selling some pumpkin related stuff and getting some candy and stuff sold, not much effort goes into it. For any real Halloween terror, I think you might need to go to Chris place in West Japan.

Generally there is no "trick or treat" tradition at all here in Japan, but our Mama Mafia took it on them to set up such an event for the kids in our little gated community. I do doubt that many who participated actually had any idea what the "trick or treat" phrase actually means, but since everyone got their fair share of candy it didn't matter much in the end anyway. As you can see in the picture, Toddler Sunshine did however look completely adorable in her little Ladybug suit, which was the only thing that mattered in the end.

On a related note, just recently Toddler Sunshine surpassed Mrs. Sunshine in knowledge in using the iPad, expertly manouvering herself exactly to the annoying apps with songs and stuff that we got for her to keep her pacified. I'm not sure if I should feel proud or slightly concerned as when she will pass me by as Mrs. Sunshine knows her general way around computers and regular software...

Haha, nice, you got it! Back in the day before Ministry actual was more of a soft synth-pop ground and not industrial! This one always plays in my head during halloween!

Ahhhh...cute as a button!!
(Whyever that means that...the button I mean...I'll never know?.....is a button as cute as the people in the old days could come up with?...)

You'll be feeling at least 10+ years everytime she laughs and then shows you how to use______.

She's adorable! Glad your mama mafia stepped up. Ours did too and our kids got their first taste of trick or treat. Bicultural learning at its best.

Next time- teaching them how to TP that annoying neighbour's house.

Chris - Yeah, what's up with that "button" thing... With the speed she's going at it, she'll be running rings around me for computer stuff in half a year or so...

Canthusme&Lisa - Thank you thank you, my little pride and joy!

Medea - Indeed, there was plenty of "treats" to go around but very few "tricks"... Next year maybe we should shift the focus to the tricks!
