It was a spooky rainy night. Mary was watching a movie and was eating pop corn when suddenly she listened a loud noise at the door. She stand up to see what had happened. She opened the door slowly and screamed so hard . A girl with a white dress and blood all over her was standing in front of her door.Marry was terrified. The girl got into the house and started running and screaming ,Mary was watching her without doing anything. She was shocked. After  a little time  the girl stopped screaming and was standing across Mary. The two girls were watching each other in to  their eyes. Mary got out of the house quickly and starting running around the neighbourhood , the girl was following her angrily.  The rain was getting harder and the girl would not stop following her. They had arrived outside of a house when Mary stopped running and the girl did too. The two girls were standing across each other again.The girl looked at Mary and put out the wig.

- Ahh ..oh my god Liz ,you scared me. What are you doing? I thought I was going to die.
- Haha ,I got you so good Mary. Now  we are okay with that prank you did to me last year.
-I am so sorry I had to do it .
-Haha okay that is a real Halloween. Now lets go see a movie
-Ah yes!


Halloween Pumpkin Craft

Sections of the pumpkin are cut out to make holes, often depicting a face, which may be either cheerful, scary, or comical. Many and different tools can be used to carve out the gourd, from simple knives and spoons to specialized instruments, typically sold in holiday sections of North American grocery stores. Printed stencils can be used as a guide for spooky designs. After carving, a light source, such as a candle, is placed inside the gourd, and the top is put back into place. The light is normally inserted to illuminate the design from the inside and add an extra spookiness.

Trick-or-treat is a Halloween custom for children in the United Kingdom. Children incostumes go from house-to-house, asking for treats with the phrase "Trick or treat". The "treat" is usually some form of candy, although, money is used instead. The "trick" is a usually idle threat to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given. Some homeowners signal that they are willing to hand out treats by putting up Halloween decorations outside their doors, others simply leave treats available on their porches for the children to take freely.

This is my photo for the competition

   This is the most exciting photo that I have taken from my aunt's  GO PRO and this place is Loutro near Chania, Crete. I really like this place and what I want to show you is that there are a lot of places in Greece that can make you relax only by watching their photos. But visiting them is much better because you are inspired from all those amazing colours . It is always good to visit new places and to make  NEW friends- if you agree with me don't forget it .



                                                                                  This is my best photo!!!I took it one year ago on my holidays in Athens with my school. It was exciting because then we went to a hotel and we saw the sunset. It was the best holiday in my life!!!

This is my photo for the photography competition.
This photo shows a small homeless dog. I met him at the beach one day and he was very hungry. So , the next day I went to the beach again and fed him. Since then we became very good friends and I can't wait until next summer to meet him again. With this photo I want to show you how you can help other people and animals and have a good time with them too !

Sports-love it or hate it?

I always enjoy to do activities and sports. This is a way in which you can realise your energy. I have tried enough activities and sports which I liked very much like dancing,swimming, scuba diving and volleyball.
Also,I have tried sports which I didn't like, like basketball.This is a sport for tall people! I am not as tall. This sport isn't to my liking.
I have watched a lot of sports on TV, like synchronised swimming, tennis, kickboxing e.t.c. but my favourite is synchronised swimming. I would to try this sport because,I love dancing and swimming. This is a sport which combines dancing and swimming.
I would like in the future to continue dancing, because it is my favourite activity!

The ghost is the latest addition Rolls-Royse company and its the most powerful car they have ever built.The ghost has the most powerful engine that has ever been created by the company.The speciality of this car is the handcraftsmanship. It's how long each car takes to assemble. It's how much detail goes into every single part of the car and it's also just the feel that the car gives you as a customer.Moreover the price of the car is a quarter of a million pounds.

Jonathan Sands created this museum himself. He thinks that Britain leads the world when it comes to film-making for two reasons.

Have teens got enough free time?

"Teenagers don't have lots of free time, and they waste it"

I agree with this statement because teens don't have lots of free time and this little free time they have,  they waste it playing online games or watching television.

Teenagers and their free time.

'' Teenagers do not have a lot of free time, and they waste it.'' What do you think of this statement.

I agree with this statement that teenagers do not have a lot of free time because they may have a lot of homework  but when they have, they waste it on computers and television instead of doing something more creative.

Thoughts about Nature

In my opinion , living in the nature is very nice because the air is cleaner and healthier and the environment is peaceful and relaxing . So, i would totally recommend to anyone a day out to picnic, to camp or anything.There is nothing better than staying under the shades of a tree forgeting about the routine and just relax. However, it is better to do it with family or friends.


Skydiving is a very adventurous and dangerous sport where you have to do something phychologically demanding which is to jump out of an airplane while it is flying and land safely on the ground with your parachute.This sport appeals to people who are a bit crazy and love adrenaline.
