I used to smirk at friends who get so excited about Halloween because I don't think it's worth celebrating since it is not a Filipino or Catholic Holiday. But now that I have a kid, I changed my mind and got rid of the smirk. Any excuse to dress up in costumes, eat treats and have FUN with friends and family should be enough reason to celebrate! Mike and I have thought months before of our son's costume and we immediately agreed on him wearing a Prisoner's outfit. We think that it's unique and cool! I even thought of this tagline...Orange but not pumpkin, Scary but not a Ghost....One should fear the living and not the dead...

We saw lots of kids in costume, from the usual witches and Dracula to more imaginative characters such as Mulawin, Bumblebee and a lot2x more. I really admire the parents for their creativity and the kids for gamely wearing the costumes. I am now inspired to think of another cool costume for next year.
Among the many activities I enjoyed Trick or Treating the most, the stores were so generous with giving candies and coupons with discounts! The kids really enjoyed seeing their basket overflowing with treats. Mike and I were excited too as Kulay's basket piled up with candies because we will be the ones eating them *insert evil laugh* which reminds me that I still have lots of candies to eat so ta-tah!
