I looked forward to Halloween because it is such a huge event in America. So today, I'm going to share what I did.
I went to the embassy to trick-or-treat. In Abroad at AU, they run this program for international students. We met in front of the Mary Graydon Center and went to the Dupont Circle, where embassies were crowded. Costumes are highly recommended, but it's up to you. In my case, I wore the witch costume I bought on Amazon. You can purchase costumes for under $30 on Amazon or at Target. The other students simply wore veils or makeup. Wearing no costumes is also okay.
Starting from the embassy of Portugal, we knocked on the doors of almost 30 embassies. Some embassies welcomed us by wearing their traditional clothes or costumes, like the pictures below. Other embassies placed candy baskets outside.
I will never forget this experience. Being greeted at an embassy with candy is an experience that can only happen in D.C., so I highly recommend you check out AU if you’re considering studying abroad. It's late, but Happy Halloween everyone!!
