Just a few nights more til the spookiest night of the year!
Okay, I’ve said this before (so please don’t kill me) – I’m not big on Halloween. I know. The girl who dresses up for everything isn’t into what is pretty much the biggest costume party on earth.
It’s just, Halloween was never really a big thing in the Philippines. For us, as soon as what we call the -ber months hit (SeptemBER, OctoBER – you get the idea), it’s basically Christmas. Malls play Christmas music and have Christmas trees up by September 1st. From then til January (yes you read that right), it’s basically one long Christmas party full of evenings of eating, hanging out with friends, lots and lots of family reunions, and did I say eating yet? Eating. That’s something I’ve always loved about the Philippines. Our love for all things Christmas. But that also meant that I never really grew up with Halloween.
I think it was only in college that I really started going to Halloween parties, and even then I never went for anything scary costume-wise (I am not a fan of scary movies lol). The closest I can get to that is wearing a Disney Villain inspired look instead.
