aRe you ONE of those who are busy hunting for Pumpkins these 2 days?? aRe YOU of them who are busy picking on oOh-so-hOrror custume for your lil pleasure, trick or treat ?? hehee..weLL, here in malaysia we dont quite celebrate halloween. Some may organize some sort of-a-like-halloween ambience party, infaCt we do “pull” & rock it in our own way! Ahakss...
So, the above photo is a traditional Irish halloween Jack-O'-lantern from the early 20th. Somehow it brings up the eerie feeling because it has the element of the festival of the dead people. Believe it or not this celebration originate from Ireland(also well known for their sexy & hot guy...JK) & Scotland(the land wear men wear skirts & its much exciting if they play peek-a-bOo...ahaakss). Anyway, according to the Celt in the ancient, the gap between this world & the “Other World” became thin that the spirit, regardless its gud spirit or bad, can come onto our humanic world & pay a visit to their family members(awwwwww or Uhhowww? U decide...hahaaa )
And here's a fact for you all who are attending those halloween custume party, the purpose of wearing one on halloween is to disguise as one of the gHost(so they thought you were one of them...ahakss..hahaaa) and avoid the nasty jokes frm them! Ring a bell ? It does sounds like the chinese believe where they celebrate the, Hungry Ghost Festival.
Infact, the festival is celebrate on the 7th Month of the Chinese calender(Nong Li), where the HELL's gate loose open and all the spirits come wondering in our world. During these time, its like a food fiesta along the road. You'll see fire burning(Sean Kingston, Fire Burning song in the bCkground, jst imagine it k!) , sumwhat like BBQ. Not forgetting all those candies, cookies, Apples & oranges scattered all along the road. So can u get the picture??! are you wit me ? hahaa...Btw, this festival is celebrated over the whole month. So, sit tight and dont come home late cause you dont wanna bump into 'one' on the way home...kekekkeee...
oOH! Happy Trick or Treat! (or have fun thRowing rotten at someone you hate! Ahakss..)
