Getting Ready for Halloween
Despite the numerous festivals and celebrations that take place in Japan, Halloween unfortunately is not one of them. Last week, I bought a nice little orange pumpkin and had my friends Yuriko and Hitoshi to join me in carving it into a Jack-o’-lantern. This was Yuriko’s first time, so it was really great seeing her expression when we put the candle in the newly carved pumpkin. After that, we took the seeds from the pumpkin, fried them up, and ate them around the glowing Jack-o’-lantern.
