The United States is made up of many nationalities and indigenous peoples. Each group has their holidays and traditions. What gets celebrated varies over time. Conversa, having students and teachers from around the world celebrates holidays and mixes traditions. Last October 31 we celebrated Halloween at Conversa. We had a costume contest where groups of students had 5 minutes to dress one student. Then the costumes were judged for the best and second best. Afterwards we borrowed the Mexican custom of the Piñada. We filled the skull-shaped Piñada with candy and chocolate and took turns taking blindfolded wacks at the defenseless skull. It was too much fun.
