A Halloween Treat

What are some of your favorite Halloween traditions? Halloween is a long-celebrated holiday in many countries, and Nomen Global students got a hint of some of our favorite traditions.

Pumpkins have many uses, including making pies, soups, and jack-o'-lanterns. While watching our favorite scenes from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, we carved faces of all kinds into fresh, orange pumpkins. Our jack-o'-lanterns ranged from happy, smiling Harry Potters to cobweb-covered vampires. Our International Recruiting office then voted on the best jack-o'-lantern!

Cookie Decorations
What is a good holiday without food? We couldn't let a Halloween party pass without homemade cookies, frosting, and candy! Students had the chance to make and eat some festive confections.

Halloween Games
Vampires, werewolves, zombies . . . which monster will be called out next? Our students had to listen carefully to hear whether they needed to move seats in this fast-paced, seat-changing Halloween game.

Scary Stories
"It was a dark and stormy night. We heard the footsteps coming closer . . . closer . . . closer . . ." What do you think will happen? Scary stories are a favorite tradition among Americans who celebrate Halloween. One particular author, Edgar Allen Poe, wrote many eerie stories that fit in with the ghosts and goblins running around this time of year. Today at Nomen Global, our students listened to one of Poe's most famous stories, The Tell-Tale Heart.
