Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday! The costumes is my favorite part and i love how the atmosphere in a town changes as it gets closer to the spooky date. As i am in Hong Kong to study this quarter it was quite interesting to see how the locals celebrated the event. Even though it is more of a western holiday, the theme parks really put on a great show. However i am still a little homesick for my hometown’s Halloween, not being able to celebrate and carve pumpkins with my family makes it feel a little weird. I am thankful however that i did have so much fun for Halloween here! here is a picture of what my yard looked like on halloween in 2009.
