Halloween is celebrated on the last weekend of October. But mostly in western culture. Till a few years back we, living in Pakistan had a very faint idea of what this was all about.
Then the influence of the west, movies, etc prompted our younger generation to start celebrating Halloween. Mostly the affluent class of people try to emulate the west. We can find costumes and special candy packs for Halloween. But only the kids in schools actively participate, while the indulgent parents facilitate them.
I personally have no inclination to frighten myself silly by reading scary stories or watching Halloween-based movies. It’s an alien culture for us and I don’t get the logic behind it at all. But then I guess the other side of the picture is true too. We do a lot of things here in an eastern culture that don’t make sense to others, as well.
No creepy ghosts to spoil my night
No spooky stories to make my hair stand
I spend my Halloween safely tucked in my bed
Dreaming peaceful dreams and ignoring the shrieks outside
