It's Valkenhaus tradition to celebrate Halloween with many festivities throughout the month of October! We visited the local farm, carved pumpkins, and had a party. The month of fall fun finished on Halloween night with a gathering for an evening of toasts, witchy dress, and oaths.
We visited the local farm to find our way through a corn maze, feed and pet the animals, learn about agriculture and select our pumpkins for carving.
Everyone carving their pumpkins!
The marvelous Valkenhaus jack-o-lantern, and Aegon too!
The Valkenhaus Witches made the front page of the local paper!
Children had a blast at the Halloween party with games like balloon pop, pin-the-tail on Sleipnir, and bobbing for Idunna's apples!

Everyone dressed their best for the occasion.
Halloween is a time remember and honor our ancestors and those who came before us.
Once Halloween arrived, we took oaths to honor the achievements of our ancestors and who they were.
