Thursday Doors: Halloween

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.


Happy Halloween!

    I didn’t realise Halloween was big in Asian countries. Did you dress up as something too?

    1. Halloween has become a popular celebration in Hong Kong. Last year, we lived in the Philippines and it was also popular there, especially for the children ‘trick-or-treating.’ Thailand has some celebrations and parties but mainly around the tourist areas. I was lazy this year and didn’t dress up. I did give out candy to those who did!! =)

        Haha I guess people giving out candy are as important as the people dressing up 😉
