Trick or Treat?

Tonight is the night for kids and people who are kids at heart to go to houses for trick or treat. Candies! Yeah, this is what kids love the most about Halloween. The experience of going from one houses to another collecting candies is what make Halloween so much fun and exciting for kids.

For the record, this is my second Halloween in the US. Last year, I feel indifferent how the people in the US celebrated Halloween. Don't blame me for feeling such. It is just total different on how I celebrated it in the last 23 years. LOL.

Filipinos in the US know that Halloween is celebrated way different here in the US than in our motherland. In the Philippines, it means going to cemetery, visiting the tomb of the dead, bringing flowers and offering novenas. It is the time to remember all of those who had depart already in this world. On the other hand, for people in the US, it means party... a lot of parties and wearing of their favorite Halloween costume and the "trick and treat" moments of the kids on the night of October 31st.

So, to everyone, Happy Halloween.... trick or treat?
