November: Scary?

Before the 1st day of November in last day of October, the night of that day is the HALLOWEEN celebration. Common Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, visiting "haunted houses", carving Jack-o'-lanterns, reading scary stories and watching horror movies. This practice is mostly done in America, in the Philippine some of the people having their own Halloween party.

On the next day is the All Saints day, the feast commemorates all those who have attained the beatific vision in heaven, while the next day, All Souls' Day, commemorates the departed faithful who have not yet been purified and reached heaven.

In Philippine culture, every All Souls day of the year the families of those who past aways go to the cemetery to clean the place and give flowers and lighting candle for remembering them and some are staying for a while to pray for the souls of their past aways. Some are reunited for them to see their special person remebering, they prepare food or should i say kakanin.

In the Philippines, if we say November, they say that this is the month of ghost. Mostly shows in TV every November is about ghost stories and some unnatural things. Some also said that November is a Days of scaryness but, this is not true. Being scared is only in the mind.

But november is one of my happiest day because our family will be having our reunion and we will having a a field trip and semestral break in or school. the nesxt month well be the December and if we talk about Decmber, its Christmas Holidays
