Halloween in South Africa and a Linky

Samantha created this digital art piece on Halloween. She drew it freehand. She's so creative!

Who celebrated Halloween? We usually mark the day by eating American candy, but otherwise, it's pretty quiet. Our main candy was M&Ms. We only eat them about once a year. They're a bit pricy in South Africa. We started watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Netflix and it just so happened the next one in the queue on the day of Halloween was the Halloween episode! We didn't even know there was a Halloween episode.

All three girls are home this week (two of them are university students). They'll be writing end-of-the-year exams soon. The school year starts around January and ends around December. Summer break is over Christmas. The photo below was taken in September. Amanda is standing on a slight incline, making her look taller.
