Halloween Doors (or gates that lead to doors)
In Hong Kong, where east meets west, celebrations like Halloween have found a home. Walking through a low-rise neighborhood, near to my high-rise one, the festivities were in full swing. The street was blocked off and the “trick or treaters” were out in great number.
Darth Vadar, Princess Leia, Batman and a couple of Transformers were there. They kindly posed for photos with the multitude of children dressed in bright, dark, spooky, and delightful costumes.
There were smiles and giggles on the faces of dinosaurs, princesses, skeletons, stormtroopers, and ballerinas as they danced from door to door (or gate to gate). In sing-song voices, they asked for candy. The adults who accompanied them took this opportunity to don a costume as well.
