Halloween or All Hallow’s Eve – the day that the spooks come out (but my sister is visible every other day of the year as well) is once again upon us. October 31st is celebrated in many countries as a fun filled festival for people of all ages. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o’-lanterns, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies. Too bad we don’t celebrate it in India.

A lot of us kids, who grew up in the Gulf countries, had access to American cartoons & tv series much earlier than the ones in India and who were around our age. So whether it was Scooby Doo, Donald Duck or Caspar, they all had their fun/problems during this day.
I can remember all these series in the latter years like Friends or Buffy The Vampire Slayer which would have episodes dedicated to this festival. And, oh, who could forget the costumes. People go really bonkers trying to come up with that ultimate costume that will stun everyone.
Who would I go as? Let’s see……a vampire ofcourse!
