It was our first “proper” Halloween this year. We have of course dressed up before [2011, 2012, 2013], and we usually throw a party, but we have never had the opportunity to go out trick or treating. This year, knowing Dubai is quite big on Halloween, we got together with some neighbourhood friends and joined the other children on the streets.
We were out for close to two hours and had an absolute blast. By the end of it, both kids were begging to go home – they’d walked so far and their bags were heavy and they wanted to sleep. Ha. Win!
Sadly, we didn’t end up organising a party but we are already talking about next Halloween, and there will be a party and definitely more trick or treating!
