31st of October
Everywhere spider webs and bloody heads. Also the bathroom is decorated with a spider web and towels with bats. For dinner we have napkins with the Frankenstein motive. Whereas my family in Germany has decoration for Christmas, my host family has a lot of decoration for Halloween.
My host sister Charlotte invited a lot of friends for her Halloween party to our house. Probably between 30 and 40 people are in our house at the same time. Since she visited a catholic high school, most of the guests are friendly girls, who asked me a lot of questions.
After a very short trick or treat, playing table soccer and dancing, it is time for a horror movie. The Babadook is a movie about a lonely mother, who gets crazy. Firstly, she kills her dog. Later she tries to kill her own child one night.
Some friends leave the room after a couple of minutes. Some friends of Charlotte seem to never be frightened. I can tell this also about myself.
