October 31, 2016 - Happy Halloween!

Abandoned bull fighting stadium

Spider nest in my hair!

So this last week has gone super awesome!  Me and my comp are getting along great, the district is working hard, and the members are happy, and investigators are progressing! What more could you ask for?

Happy Halloween everyone back at home!  If you were all wondering, no, we don't celebrate Halloween out here in Mexico.... Everyone out here thinks Halloween is a day to worship the devil, so they don't celebrate it.  Which is kind of sad....  However they do celebrate day of the dead!  Which is basically the same thing as Thanksgiving here, but more focused in on their family who have passed away.  And there are piñatas!

This week we're going to be having a branch party for the day of the dead, that will basically be like the Halloween parties back at home.  There will be games, a message given about the family history work, food and piñatas!  That's the best part about every holiday here in Mexico, there's always a piñata there! Even for Christmas!

The culture is always something amazing to learn about, their views on everything is a whole lot different than ours! However, the wonderful part about our country is that its made up of tons of different cultures, so we can experience it all!  
This past week I found an old stadium for bull fighting.....  Sadly that's illegal here now.....  Also, this morning I was attacked by a giant spider, it was mostly in my hair...... 
Love you guys!
