Halloween at Xavierville Phase2
We had a great time today (24th October) at the Halloween / Trick-or-Treat Celebrations at our neighborhood organized by the Xavierville Phase2 Homeowners’ Association (XHA) Organizing Committee!
Every year the XHA would always hold this Halloween Party –especially for kids aged 3-13– but this year it was made quite special because of the extraordinarily huge number of kids that came: early estimates placed it at 140-150 kids (not including parents, guardians, or ‘adults pretending to be kids’…like myself ).
By 2pm, we already saw the kids coming in (empty lot, 20 Alvero Street) in droves…and in beautifully and amazingly crafted COSTUMES –CONGRATS, KIDS! ehem, parents pala 😉 — excited to participate and have fun. On entering, children were treated to a magical show or to the “upper stage” for a photo shoot*.
We had GAMES and lots of fun! We had two rounds of MUSICAL CHAIRS (the little ones couldn’t wait for their turn & were already queuing up for the 2nd round!), as well as Newspaper Dance and Stop Dance… Boy, were these kids great game-players! In between was the eating, of course.
Newspaper Dance: Congrats, girls!
Little LUKE with elder sis, winning in Newspaper Dance, coz big sis always successfully held him up! ROAR!
(For those who have nice pictures to send/post, you may send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line “Xavierville Halloween”)
Needless to say, the most-awaited was the TRICK or TREAT which followed immediately afterward: packs of kids trekked, with pumpkin pails in tow, to the various households that signed up for giving away those treats (how about tricks?) much awaited by the kids!

The XHA Organizing Committee shall distribute to the households concerned the Prizes for those who would’ve won in the Best Costume category & other awards…
I hope you all enjoyed yourselves! 🙂 Well, I did! 😉
