Halloween in China!
As an international program, of course we have to have a Halloween Party.
This consists of the students dressing up and taking pictures of each other for 2 hours.
Since we have so many Senior 1 (sophomore students) we made the party in 2 rooms and tried to organize activities. We had a costume "scavenger hunt" the limbo and a wannabe dance party (if only we could have gotten a strobe light...) Chinese students are much more inhibited and don't really just dance--they like choreographed dances.
Its pretty hard to find costumes here next to the big chain superstores like Tesco, Walmart or Carrefour--most students order them online
The pollution and fog arrives in Jinan for Halloween...spooky
My favorite costume
I had class the period before the party started and had such a hard time keeping their attention--the girls were all putting on fake eyelashes and doing their makeup
Since they wear uniforms and girls generally do not wear makeup this is their opportunity to pamper themselves and go all out.
Overall--successful Halloween :D
