Halloween 2016

Halloween originates from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, and Halloween is therefore celebrated a lot in Ireland. We dress up, go trick-or-treating, play games and gather around bonfires. Here in Sweden, we like to share with you how we do it, and so we arranged two very successful events this year, a Children’s Party and a film event! This was a very small sample of the delicious goodies that were at the party! Around 30 children and 20 adults attended. Thanks to all who helped out!
