We didn’t have Halloween growing up – it is not a Singaporean tradition. But by some strange turn, it is now one of our family’s favourite holidays. There is no TrickOrTreat-ing, just themed food & dressing up.
I cannot do scary. Whether it is a faint heart or an over-active imagination, it has been this way for as long as I remember. I had nightmares for months after my first and only horror film at aged 13. As a young adult, I had to leave the cinema after 20 minutes of Cape Fear (1991) which is not even a horror movie.
But if your children want to dress up like pirates & fairies, eat ghoulie cupcakes & blood splattered sausage rolls, one has to say, Sure! Let’s have a party.
How are you celebrating Halloween?
