article imageHalloween in China Special

Jilin - It's hard to find Halloween decorations in China because the Western holiday is new there, but if you look carefully, you can find ways to celebrate.
I went from Li Shui, in the southeast of China to Jilin in the northeast. I left my camera in a taxi the first week, so I don't have photos of the city yet, but I will. I've been teaching English in a high school by the picturesque river with its colorful bridges and dragon boats, framed by tall, ornate buildings.
For Halloween, I borrowed a Chinese teacher's camera and got some shots of Chinese teenagers celebrating. They dressed up and posed near a festive greenboard where my colleague Jenny and I drew scary pictures. They practiced "trick or treat" and learned about the history of Halloween and its symbols (like grave stones and black cats). I even showed them how to carve pumpkins. Enjoy these photos from China. Happy Halloween!
