It’s already the last day of October. People are preparing their costumes as they imitate people (or monsters, rather) and attend parties wherever they may be invited to. Rush- shopping, costume-choosing, bags of candies all prepared in case someone knocks and whisper the most famous line whenever this particular day (or night) comes:
“Trick or Treat?”
Horror films are also one of the essentials every 31st – to add more to the scare factor everyone is trying to achieve. Monsters, Ghosts, Evil Spirits, Zombies, and all the likes are the main star for the night – because, as what they say, it is indeed their night. It is the 31st of October, the perfect night to transform and be one scary (or weird) creature.
As for me, I never actually tried to attend such parties because one: Halloween parties here in the Philippines are usually for people who are well-off. and two: I am quite coward and I’m not really into such activities. I still have the third – and probably the most important – reason why I never tried to engage to such activity.
Halloweens have become a tradition to many wherein they consider this holiday to be the day of the dead, and so for them to be able to give tribute they imitate them. I actually don’t agree with this tradition – if this is considered as one. For me, what most people should do is to peacefully remember their loved ones who have passed on and pay tribute through prayers. I believe that when one does an activity evil enjoys to see, it will dwell on it and starts deceiving people. And in this case, I think this particular activity has become one way for the evil to do such deceit. Let us always remember that whatever we do, we must do for God’s glory, and I don’t think engaging to such activity gives Glory to our Father.
I hope you get the message. Pardon me for some grammatical errors – if ever you find one. I just typed everything that’s on my mind at the time. thank you and God bless you more. ❤
