Tomorrow is Halloween night... eeeekkk...What will happen? Who will come knocking on our door? Phew.. Luckily J will be at home handling the tricks or treats...

I remember few years ago, my friend cum neighbour got a big fright on that night. She opened the door with a bloody man holding an axe lying on the floor. She screamed and slammed the door but the guys started to scratch and banged on her door and shutter. After that year, most of the wives here will either off the lights early and hide in their bedroom or gathered together to spend the Halloween night.

Actually we bought some Halloween Costumes for FUN during our first trip here in 2001. I remember my friend did wear it and really frightened a kid. After that, we just chucked it in the garage. Well, I am lucky to meet those "little cute ghost" which were not so scary at all. Normally, I will just prepare lots of sweets and chocolates to distribute on that day. We did not get any Halloween costume for Shannon because she might be too young to play around or understand anything... Hmmm..Perhaps next year... ^_^

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. Traditional activities include trick or treating, Halloween Festivals, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted houses and viewing horror files.

History about Halloween

The Festival of Halloween is a celebration of the end of the fertile period of the Celtic Goddess Eiseria. It is said that when Eiseria reaches the end of her fertile cycle the worlds of the dead and the living interlap. This happens on October 31. Masks are worn to show respect for the Goddess Eiseria who, like most Celtic deities, does not wish to be seen with human eyes. The day also preceeds All saints day, which was at first the celebration of the start of a new cycle of fertility for the celtic Goddess Eiseria. Couples incapable of producing children thus tried their luck on All saints day.
