HAL­LOWEEN CEL­E­BRA­TIONS

Western Leader - - OUT & ABOUT -

We run a pos­i­tive al­ter­na­tive to Hal­loween called a Light Party. In­stead of cel­e­brat­ing scary things, we cel­e­brate good things.

This is hosted by En­counter Chris­tian Cen­tre, 495 Rose­bank Rd Avon­dale. This year’s theme is ‘In the Jun­gle’. Kids dress up in theme, $2 en­try and can play games and ac­tiv­i­ties to win lol­lies and prizes.

We find this is a much more fun and safe en­vi­ron­ment for the kids. All wel­come.

Treat doesn’t have to be su­gary, right? I usu­ally fold lots of Origami pa­pers and make Hal­loween themed items such as witches and other mon­sters to give away for kids who knock my door. They love them

It’s a bit of fun for the kids and ac­tu­ally good ex­er­cise as we end up walk­ing for quite a time and dis­tance. It’s a spe­cial treat. We re­spect if peo­ple don’t wel­come [us] though.
