This is my current creative schedule. Halloween first – nearly done, and then bears, display and so forth for the Hunt Valley Christmas Show. I began creating the show bears and then took a break because I had this idea for a couple of things in celebration of Halloween. But I’ve been so busy, I forgot about education - the education of three new bears. I turned to Sebastian and asked if he could lend a hand. Now that he has had a Halloween or two under his belt, I thought he could pass along his knowledge. Needless to say, but I’ll say it anyway; he took to the teacher roll immediately.
I am here to tell you all about Halloween. It is the time of year when regular ol’ pumpkins, like this one here,
turn into jack o’ lanterns. Carving them is messy but fun.
In the evening, all kinds of monsters, ghosts and skeletons come out to play. Don’t worry though. They’re friendly.
Now this is where it gets serious. This is the most important part so listen carefully. First you put on your Halloween costume and get a big sack or bucket like this one. Then you go ‘round knocking on the neighbors’ doors saying “Trick or Treat!”
When you do, they give you candy! Lots and lots of candy. Yummy! And remember to say “Thank you!” and come back home and share it with me!
Since you have been such good students, I am going to award you your diplomas. These diplomas can’t be earned just anywhere. You have to pass Professor Sebastian’s Halloween 101 Class.
Congratulations! Now take your diplomas and go get us some candy on Halloween!
