Everyone loves trick or treating. But do you all now, how does Halloween start? As far as I know, Halloween is an ancient festival of the dead. My mom told me that it was then when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts.
I remember when I was 5 years old, me and my cousins used to sing Halloween carolings house after house. In return, people would give us money. After that, we would divide it and buy candies. It’s a local practice here in the Philippines, especially in the provinces. But in other countries they do trick or treating.
This month we also give prayers to our dead loved ones, relatives, or friends. May God lift their souls in the purgatory and live eternally with our Father in heaven.
And for this year’s Halloween celebration, our neighbor organized a small Halloween party for the little ones. Prices were given, food, cakes, toys, balloons and parlor games. Kids really enjoyed it! My babies even got the best costume award yay! Happy Halloween everyone!
