WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO SOME "TRICK-OR-TREATING" WITH ME?
On the night of October the 31st, we will be celebrating Halloween (All Hallow's Eve or Samhain), a typical fall event that rejoices many people (mostly kids or grown-up kids!) around the globe ...
Although, here in Europe (central Europe), we are not really accustomed to this autumnal tradition (we only celebrate the "Day Of The Dead" on the 1st of November and the "Toussaint" on the 2nd of November by paying a visit to our deceased family members at the cemetary), it is still an occasion to have fun and eat festive foods. Why should we also not share this Celtic custom with our Anglo-Saxon friends (USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, New Zealand Australia and also other non-english speaking countries like Mexico and Puerto Rico)? I see no reason for not taking part to this magical and mysterious "carnival" marking the last day of the bright half of the year and the beginning of winter which is synonymous of death when the boundary separating the dead from the living becomes blurred...
So, it's time for all of you grown-up children to show your darker side and roam the streets in search of sweet candies that the terrified inhabitants will obediently give after you have knocked at their door!
