Billy, Zoë, thank you! We did it, and nearly right in time!
Do you think.. do you think the kids will like it?
You got candy the colors of crayons, your best cake stuffed and wrapped in a paper frog...
and the weirdest, scariest decoration ever right on your doorstep.
This tradition is weird, but I think you nailed it.
Let's... let's not talk about nails, or hammers anymore, please.
Well hopefully they wont burn down my house, after all that effort.
Kids don't burn down the house!
They trick you if you don't have candy: they throw an egg, or paint the walls with bird poop, or something like that.
Oh that's nice. Well... that's nice than burning my house down I guess.
So what was the point of all that work? candies, decorations, all that material to buy and to wait for?
Well come with me, I'll show you
You had a great halloween and you gained a new building!
See Nyok, I think I understand that tradition.
It's a lot of work, and expensive, and doesn't make much sense.
But I think it's about bringing people to your doorstep, by saying...
"don't be scared, my cabin in the woods can look weird every day of the year...
but today, this very day it will just look ridiculous and...
you and I can have some candies together, and laugh about it."
That... that makes sense, I think. All that hard work? It wasn't for nothing, yes?
Not at all! And now that you were so successful...
everybody will know that at the end of the magic forest, you can get the best...
well , the only, really... mushroom soup in town!
I better help you prepare when everybody comes in and ask for a sip!
That's right! It better be at its best! Thank you, Billy. Again.
