Happy Halloween to everyone whose country does celebrate this day. We in India don’t really celebrate it as it is not a big deal for us. Scary monsters, goblins & witches do not compare to the politicians, goons & idiots we have to worry about in our country. But I wish we did have a Halloween tradition in India. It would be fun to go for costume parties or go trick or treating as a kid, have bonfires and carve scary looking pumpkins as they show horror movies all day. Many European cultural traditions, in particular Celtic cultures, hold that Halloween is one of the few times of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world, and when magic is most potent. I have seen many movies with this day as the basis & many tv series & sit-coms that have a Halloween special. Too bad that I don’t watch much tv these days. Anyways by midnite I may just lie on my bed and watch a horror movie on my dvd player.
