We’re on the last week of October, which means Halloween is approaching.
Halloween, which is traditionally celebrated every 31st of October, is part of the three-day observance of Allhallowtide or the triduum encompassing the Western Christian observances together with All Saints’ Day (All Hallows’) and All Souls’ Day. It is the time of the year to remember the dead which includes martyrs, saints, and all faithful departed Christians.
Also, it as a time for trick-or-treating, attending Halloween costume parties, decorating, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions of horror house booths, carving pumpkins and make them into jack-o\-lanterns, watching horror movies and telling scary stories.
This said day is being celebrated globally, and the Philippines is just one of the countries that actively celebrates it annually.
Since October 1 is a SPECIAL NON-WORKING HOLIDAY, sure the whole Philippines will get themselves dressed for the Halloween parties they’ll be attending, prepped up to fill their own trick-or-treat baskets up with sweet chocolates and candies.
