Greek Fall-oween

It just occurred to me today that I haven't seen many leaves changing here yet. I wonder when that happens?

I wrote that first sentence a week ago. I still haven't seen many leaves changing, but I guess I've seen a few yellows here and there.

The temperature has started dipping a bit, but we're still Mediterranean. It's high 60s to 70s during the day, and low 60s to high 50s at night. Not bad for almost November.

A view from our walk last week.

We're very progressive here in Greece. So progressive, in fact, that we've already fallen back for the end of Daylight Savings. As of yesterday, we gained an hour. You Americans don't get to do that until this weekend. Nah nah.


Spending that extra hour on Harry Potter

This week is the Halloween party at Phil's work. I'm debating how gruesome to get with my costume. I'm assuming the local staff at the Embassy have a basic understanding of Halloween, especially if they're specifically cutting time out of their schedule for a Halloween party, I just don't want to freak them right out if I show up at the gate covered in blood. Maybe I'll change after I get there.

We're planning to host a couple Brits from our church on Friday evening. We warned them that we'd be celebrating an early Halloween with them. They had no idea what we were talking about. I can't wait to explain it to them. I figure I'll go with, "It's like Guy Fawkes night, but instead of celebrating a failed revolutionary, we celebrate candy and Satan." Maybe I'll make them carve a pumpkin. I'm totally going to make them carve a pumpkin. Oh, this is going to be hilarious.

  1. Then, cook the pumpkin seeds and make them eat them. They'll freak!
