Halloween in Italy is catching on, but it is no where near as big as it is in the United States. We had the great fortune of attending a Halloween Party hosted by some American friends on the grounds of an Italian Villa.
There was a wonderful mix of Italian and American children sharing the Halloween excitement.
Since most Italian children do not go trick-or-treating the host set up craft table for children to make their own Halloween bags. My children however, have been waiting for over a month now to use their Monster Bags!
We all shared a very American dinner of chili, hot dogs, sloppy Joes, and all the trimmings. As it started to get dark we were lead through a "trick-or-treat" trail that twisted through the grounds of the Villa.
Along the way different spooky and silly characters handed out Halloween treats to the eager children.
The Green Man was handing out my Halloween treat contribution....MONSTER COOKIES!
Afterwards the children roasted marshmallows and ate Smores.
A good time was had by all, I think it was the most Halloween fun I've had since leaving the States!
