A gypsy fire is on the hearth,
Sign of the carnival of mirth;
Through the dun fields and from the glade
Flash merry folk in masquerade,
For this is Halloween!
Have a very merry, scary holiday children and adults and all those in between!
Tonight in Seattle you can join this festive partaaay: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wendy-k-leigh/occupy-halloween-in-seatt_b_1067736.html. Or if you were lucky you were able to attend the sold out Halloween bash at The Showbox. Lucky!
Last year for Halloween I dressed like a college girl on a Thursday night and added cat ears. It’s the easiest costume to throw together. Somehow during the night I acquired pieces of other people’s costumes; a plastic handgun, Ray-Ban aviators, glitter, a cowboy hat, Ashley’s phone. To name a few. I was quite a confusing character. Fortunately, the Chinese are not strict about their Halloween merriment. They enjoy the chance to dress as a fantasy, however they have much less creativity than our western land. Many witches, many Hello Kitties, many vampires. So so many glow sticks. And they all head to the amusement parks. While we were at the bar, the Chinese migrated over to the tourists traps for their own play-time. Actually sounds like fun to me. I’d dress crazy and hit up Disneyland for a thrilling Halloween ride! How cool would it be to be dressed as a make-believe person in a fantasy land? Sounds like the ultimate Halloween to me. Well, my advice for anyone looking to head over to the Orient is to grab a generic black costume and head to the cheesy side of town. Unless you go to Japan, I think they take ghosts much more seriously over there. Happy Halloween!
