So we had our Halloween party two weeks ago. All the kids were super excited to be dressed up and getting candy. They had been learning the Trick or Treat song, with one notable lyric change. They sang “Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat, if you don’t, I don’t care, I’ll just make you wish you had.” Our kindergartners have already learned how to successfully threaten someone. At least the version I grew up with, you knew…give me your candy or I’ll pull down your underwear. This new, menacing last line comes with all sorts of implications….we don’t know what they’re going to do.

We set up for the kids to go to two stores around our school to trick or treat. Then, we went back to ILS and every kid’s parents were there, wearing masks. Then all the kids trick or treated with the parents. For being Korean, these parents were not joking around with Halloween. The kids bags were bulging with candy, some had to get extra bags. We also had a pumpkin carving demo with them, and made balloon pinatas that they had a blast hitting.
