I blogged this last year you can refer to this link for details https://ellehctur.wordpress.com/2009/11/04/las-after- party/

This year, I gathered up the same friends and their friends   to dressed up for the biggest Halloween costume party held  every year. This is the only event where everybody are game, no ‘kill joy’ whatsoever! Everyone came prepared or rented out their costumes so just to feel they belonged.  But no matter how prepared you are or thought you had the best costume idea ever! The people at Clark Quay will steal your thunder.

We stayed outside of Hooters to route for the passersby in costume. As always, we are the rowdiest group in the bar. We holler at every person with nice costume. This helped us get-away with free gifts and free pitchers of beer compliment of the bar where we stayed. Everybody was friendly and they are more than willing to take pictures. It’s flattering when somebody you don’t know asked to take pictures with you, it means your costume was effective and they liked it.

So being outside the mother land has it perks. At least we experienced dressing up and be imaginative for a change. We all had a blast but last year was more fun. I think nothing can top that experience.

History of Halloween

It was originally a pagan holiday, honoring the dead. Halloween was referred to as All Hallows Eve and dates back to over 2000 years ago. All Hallows Eve is the evening before All Saints Day, which was created by Christians to convert pagans, and is celebrated on November 1st. The Catholic Church honored saints on this designated day. Halloween culture can be traced back to the Druids, a Celtic culture in Ireland, Britain and Northern Europe. Roots lay in the feast of Samhain, which was annually on October 31st to honor the dead. The Celts believed the souls of the dead roamed the streets and villages at night. Since not all spirits were thought to be friendly, gifts and treats were left out to pacify the evil and ensure next year’s crops would be plentiful. This custom evolved into trick-or-treating. Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.
