Halloween is a Celtic festival. It is believed that on Oct 31, the Worlds of the living and the dead became blurred and the dead ancestors come back to Earth to find a new body. And since none of the living beings want a ghost to enter their body, they dress up like ghosts & monsters to wade off the evil. Over a period of time, it became a festival and wining and dining entered the scene. More Details on the Festival
By the way, for people who don`t know me, my yahoo id is ‘pppumpkincarver` coz I once used to carve pumpkins for a hobby. Well, at least till they started costing Rs 15/- a Kilo.

Perhaps, that is the reason why Bush and Kerry are fighting it out among themselves in the last week of October – the Halloween week. After all, ‘politics’ is made up of words ‘poli’ meaning ‘many’ in Latin, and ‘tics’ meaning ‘bloodsucking creatures.` There I go, again!
I just came to know that Bob Marley has been dead for long yet he has been earning money in millions (Read Interesting Article). He is the Jamaican, who ensured that the World knew about his country’s style of music – rap. Guess, a mummy`s favorite music would also be wrap!
Talking of rap, unless you are a gansta rapster like Ice Cube, I don`t think you would like to dance with your wife with rap playing in the background. Instead, I would prefer some Jazz. Pity all those skeletons who would be wandering around during Halloween. They would have no‘body` to dance with.
On the Halloween night …I guess the vampires would be a big pain in the neck. Especially for beautiful women, with whom they are known to fall in love at first bite. Meanwhile, the ones that love cricket will turn into bats during the day and visit cricket grounds.
Sometimes, I get this feeling that I am a Dracula. For I know I suck!
