Halloween is here!

PumpkinsSaturday is Halloween, and people around the United States and indeed the world will celebrate by carving jack-o-lanterns, bobbing for apples, donning costumes, and trick-or-treating. Here, the celebrating has already begun. Few cultures embrace Halloween as heartily as that of the U.S., and A.C.E. students in Seattle and Bozeman always have a good time our annual Halloween parties. This past Sunday, a group of A.C.E. students visited a local corn maze and pumpkin patch (see picture). Such a cultural phenomenon provides great material for English teachers and students, and so here we share a few great online resources. Have a Happy Halloween!
