We just celebrated our first holiday in Guam. Well first major kid holiday. We didn't bother to carve pumpkins because number one they are expensive and number two they don't last long here. Well, they would but you have to refrigerate them every night. I would forget and the darn thing would rot and smell up the whole neighborhood so I just skipped on it. My neighbor though had a really good idea and spray painted coconuts orange with jack-o-lantern faces. Great option for next Halloween. We spent Halloween with friends in the village of Sinajana. Halloween here is really big with families getting together to BBQ while the kids trick or treat. Just about every house on the street we were on had BBQs and handed out candy to the kids. We had all kinds of trick or treaters. We even had a guy dressed as Jesus with a cross and all. I wish I could have taken a picture of him. He was joking with us because we only gave him one piece of candy. He said "thats all you have for Jesus, just one piece of candy?" I said "well, you should be able to multiply that one into 5000." He looked confused. I just thought...if you are going to dress the part you better know your role...sheez Anyways, Halloween was fun for us thanks to the Montanano Family!!!
