Halloween Party On the eve of October 31, around 60 children gathered at the Corner to celebrate together one of the most joyous holidays in the year - Halloween. AC staff had prepared lots of fun activities and competitions for them, such as: the Monster Mash and the Hokey Pokey dance, Balloon Race and everybody’s favorite – ‘Roll the Mummy’. During the day, seventy other students had visited the Corner to learn more about the joys and traditions of Halloween.
Culinary Diplomacy Ms. Erin Andrew from the U.S. Embassy in Macedonia visited the Corner on November 7 and held a wonderful presentation on Thanksgiving traditions in the U.S. The guests also had the opportunity to taste some of Ms. Andrew’s Thanksgiving musthave desserts for the holiday feast.
