This time, my family and I visited the traditional horse racing event on Reformation Day. That day is the reason why there is a sports event at noon. Although you will see loads of small children - as I did on my way back home - that do not know anything about the reason of their leisure time and simply know what Halloween is.
Of course I’m one of those spoil sports who refuse to give candy to stupid little children in stupid costumes…
