While I know that Halloween is not that big of a deal here, I was still glad the kids had a chance to get dressed up and do some trick-or-treating.

Here's Will giving his best evil mummy face.  Note the arm in sling!
And here's my Little Red Riding Hood, complete with wolf in basket.

And here's LRRH about to be eaten by the evil, one-armed mummy.
 Thanks to the American Women's Club of Luxembourg, kids here can experience trick-or-treating just like in America.  Or almost.

The AWCL maps out a route in a nearby town and provides participating houses with candy (real American candy too!  Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!) and then kids go along to only those houses.

It was a great event.  Over 400 kids and 32 houses!

To top it off, at the end of the route there was a hot dog stand selling real American hot dogs, not the usual huge (and delicious) sausages more commonly found in these parts.  They even had the authentic, cardboard-dry Wonder Bread hot dog buns.  

A real taste of home...
