Reformation Day

Holden's school does not celebrate Halloween on October 31st, however, they do celebrate Reformation Day. For those of you who are not familiar with Reformation Day, it is both a religious and civil holiday observed on October 31. Reformation Day commemorates Martin Luther's posting of his Ninety-five Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31st, 1517, commonly regarded as the pivotal act that launched Europe into the era known as the Protestant Reformation.

For this celebration all of the children were asked to come dressed as their favorite Bible character. Holden decided on David from David and Goliath. He was very specific when he told me he wanted to be David, he wanted a sling shot and stones as his accessories, just like the story. I decided it would not be the smartest idea to send him to school with rocks so I made some faux rocks out of paper and tape. Here is our David, pretty cute don't you think. And don't you just love the pose?

Funny thing, his friend Braden dressed as Goliath. What a pair!

The kids had a parade around the school and enjoyed pumpkin muffins and cider as part of their celebration.
