Most of my childhood was spent in Cuba. We did not celebrate Halloween. But we did get a chance to dress up in costumes during Las Fiestas del Carnaval.


Here is a picture of what probably was my first Carnaval Party experience. This was at the school my siblings attended and was taken four days after my second birthday. I was still ignorant about the horrors of school in my future. Perhaps not exactly horrors, but just as scary as Halloween and not as much fun!

Below I have transported my siblings and I to a Halloween setting:


It was  so easy – with the help of my magic broom.
