I want to be the kind of mom who always signs up for everything and participates in everything, so I put our names down for an activity at Klara’s school called “Trunk-or-treat” where people compete in whose family decorates the best trunk.
The way I imagined it was that people would decorate actual trunks. Like the ones where pirates hide treasure, you know? But it turns out that the activity is a sort of a tailgating (which I also have never done) for toddlers. People park their cars next to the school, open the trunks of their cars – weird, right?- and decorate them from the inside. And put candied apples (wtf is that?) in them.
I have no idea what any of this means and I have until Friday to find out. These school activities are always fun, and this time we have 4 adults there to decorate our trunk, so how bad can it be, right?
Halloween is like the most important holiday around here. We have a Halloween-related social engagement almost every day for over a week.
