HALLOWEEN

For all those of you back in Korea who don't celebrate Halloween, this post is for you!!!!!!!!!

Basically on October 31st of every year, little kids dress up in costumes and go door-to-door yelling 'trick or treat'. So basically they are saying give me some candy (treat) or I will play a joke (trick) on you.

Apart from this trick-or-treating, there are many other traditional Halloween activities. Some of these include costume parties, watching horror films, and going to "haunted" houses.

Sometimes people decorate their houses with pumpkins and witches and all that scary stuff. We used to do the same when I was little but now that us kids are all grown up all we do is sit at the door and hand out candy (this year we gave out mini chocolate bars).


Halloween originated as a Pagan festival among the Celts of Ireland and Great Britain with Irish, Scots, Welsh and other immigrants transporting versions of the tradition to North America in the 19th century. Most other Western countries have embraced Halloween as a part of American pop culture in the late 20th century.

Here are some of the kids that came to my house:
