A Waldorf Halloween

For the past seven years Stephen and I have not had one trick-or-treater come to our door on Halloween. Nor will we have any trick-or-treaters once we move out to the ranch.  Here in downtown Ukiah, businesses open their doors in the afternoon for kids to go trick-or-treating. We missed it last year because we were away–I can’t really remember where we were. And this year we chose not to go and instead went to Zoey’s Waldorf school to attend the “Enchanted Pumpkin Path.” You walk a path around the school where there are various vignettes set up. This year the vignettes told the story of Peter Pan. I assume they change the story every year. At the conclusion of each vignette, the actors handed out something to the kids. Zoey collected a honey stick, a Neverland map, a candle, a bell on a string, a bottle of bubbles, gold chocolate coins, and a thimble. It was an enjoyable alternative to trick-or-treating for candy.
