Halloween!

Dear Readers,

Halloween is celebrated on the night of October 31st. It is believed that evil spirits, witches, and other dark forces roamed on earth that night in the old times. Today, it is more like a fun stuff, and celebration time with family and friends. Halloween is a time when children and adults dress up, and wear costumes ranging from princesses to witches and Batman to Mickey Mouse... Dressed up kids roam around in the neighborhood for trick and treat. Pumpkin carvings, themed home decors, and outdoor decoration with locally harvested stuff (mainly pumpkins and corn) are on display..
