Last year a friend of mine planned trick or treating and a Halloween party in the building. He left Abu Dhabi earlier this year and around mid-October, I realized that the Halloween festivities weren't going to plan themselves. I was able to contact him, get a hold of his old email list, and arrange the trick or treating and Halloween party for tonight.
Unfortunately with the recent death of the Sheikh of Ras Al Khaima, we decided to postpone the trick or treating and party until next week. While some may think it is being over-cautious, it would only take one person to get upset and cause problems. While it causes some inconveniences with re-organizing it, rescheduling Halloween out of respect for the late Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi is the right thing to do.
