Every year, wife and I put up our Halloween Tree and decorate it with our scary friends. Our favorite are the Skulls and Death Keepers because they looked really frightening. Halloween Fest at Great America, Disneyland and Universal Studious were our other must-experience family traditions.
This year, we skipped Halloween. Why? Haven’t we been in one long Halloween horror ride already since COVID-19 scared the hell out of us? How many times have we seen real dead bodies in body bags and coffins? How many times has Death visited to claim the lives of both people we know and don’t know? So many times we stopped counting.
I will miss my Halloween friends this year but we found new Fall friends who brought us the much needed happiness, positivity and cheer. So, perhaps next year. Besides, the Halloween scare more likely will extend till next year. Not doing Trick or Treating either. No one can really tell if they are infectious or not when handing candies to our innocent kids unless they did rapid COVID-19 test on the day of Halloween.
Won’t be saying Happy Halloween. A true concerned friend will say, “Be Safe” on Halloween so I’m saying just that, “Enjoy Halloween but just be safe.”
Passing through a cemetery today. We remember and pray for the dead. It is All Saint’s Day in other countries & tomorrow, All Soul’s Day. Never forget one’s Faith and cultural tradition. Some things are more important than party and fun.
