Halloween isn't celebrated widely here in Italy because of the overwhelming Catholic population. They celebrate All Saints and All Souls day which are November 1st and 2nd. But, there are tons of American students here who bring the tradition into Florence. We found decorations at the dollar store and since it was Becca's birthday, we had a little party at my apartment! It turned out so well!! More people than we anticipated came and they came with lots of good food and a lot of wine too! It was really a group effort which made it even more fun. Most of us didn't dress up in costume, but since we were hosting, my roommates and I dressed nicely. I think Becca had the best time out of everybody which is great, since it was her birthday! Then after we stuffed ourselves with food we left the apartment to check out this Jazz Club not too far from our apartment. It was too cute!! They had a full band which was cool, and they played all these old American Soul songs all night: Aretha, Tina, James... even the Isley Brothers. We'll definitely go back! Anyway, here's some photographic evidence....
