    Happy Halloween!

    My 4 year old daughter is going to be a Furby.

    My 6 year old son is going to be Spiderman -- the black, evil one, of course.

    I am curious about the customs of other countries on this day. Anyone care to share?


    Hope that one and all have a safe evening,
    Bettylou

    Happy Halloween everyone!

    My younger daughter is Swiper (from Dora). All her friends are dressing as Dora characters. Went nuts last night trying to find orange and blue stuff. We pulled it together, though and she went to school looking silly but obviously Swiper. She's an 8th grader in a K through 8 school. The littler kids will appreciate her costume. ;-)
    Peace,

    Not all countries celebrate Halloween on this day, or even at all. Some countries like Mexico celebrate Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) by decorating cemeteries and eating sugar skulls to celebrate and remember their loved ones who have passed on.

    In some of the earlier civilzations, on their versions of this night, people would put blood on their doors or some sort of ward against evil spirits from harming them. Then they would stay inside as it was not a celebrated holiday but a feared one. Other civilizations set out baskets of fruit and food to appease the spirits and keep them from entering their houses.

    Then you have various religions who celebrate this as their high holidays, much like christmas, yom kippur, etc... and they will spend the night practicing rituals because of the belief that their god/gods/godess/godesses are able to listen to them for this night.

    In the Jewish religion, a similar holiday is celebrated called Purim where people celebrate by dressing up as the people in the story of Purim like (My spelling will probably be off) Hamen, Mortichai, and other, as well as new characters like Spiderman or Batman. They will collect candy and celebrate halloween style, as well as eat a traditional pastry called Hamentashen (yes it is named after Hamen the bad guy). The pastry is also supposed to look like his hat which had three corners, and therefore is the shape of a triangle. The pastries are also stuffed with many flavors of jellys and jams. the most common are cherry, apricot, apple, and a black one that I cannot remember.

    There are tons of holidays and nights similar to Halloween throughout the world, the history channel and even kids cartoon shows that are playing right now are great resources to learn about them.

    Here in Washington DC we have our own tradition to kickoff Halloween where thousands upon thousands of people congregate in one of the larger Gay neighborhoods (The crowd is a huge mix of gay and straight people as well as families and pets come too.) for the annual Drag Races.

    The drag races take place the Tuesday before halloween each year, rain or shine or snow, and you get a couple hundred drag queens parading up and down a police blocked off section of 17th street for a few hours before they line up at one end and race to the other in high heels. Although, some feel it is much too much effort to run, so the glide and strut or walk and wave their way down to the end.

    Here is some video on Youtube,,,,they happened lastnight and it was a good time by all...new videos should be emerging.

    Our Interent Marketing Department dressed up today for our company Halloween contest. We were characters from Disney's Snow White. I was Happy Dwarf!

    My children are going as a skeleton, a snow princess and a Momma kangaroo. That should make for interesting pictures!
