The Day of the Dead, also known as...
I have always enquired personally this question more often than not, that exactly why do people spice up in fancy costumes during Halloween. Like every other event, a history for this festival is associated with traditions which can be traced here we are at the 16th century and have already been passed in one age group to the various other. The typical human tendency is to stick to the activities and traditions in our folks. Hence no matter what our...

On October Nineteenth at Nine o’clock pm, I arrived to my friend Susan’s house for her Halloween party at Westlake Village. Demographics of the people attending the party focused on a mix of male to female college students over twenty-one years old and predominantly upper to middle class white background. Due to the lack of racial and ethnic diversity in the party, I could not observe gender discrimination amongst people of different backgrounds. When I arrived to my friend’s house,...
Halloween should be a day of celebration, but unfortunately, people seem to be aggravated when they see their culture caricatured and turned into a costume. Many Halloween or Carnival costumes have been banned for being insensitive, sexist or racist. In fact, it is a two-sided issue with people in favor and against the banishment of these costumes.

However, this did not gather the attention of many...
Today I am going to educate you about how the history of Halloween is important, how it evolved and how I personally celebrate Halloween(parallelism). Several ages ago(hyperbole), Halloween was a very religious ceremony, but now it is just a party with candy and costumes for most people, have you ever wondered what the point of Halloween even is? The only thing that is the same is the fact that Halloween marks the end of harvesting season. So let’s talk about...
It was the month of my favorite holiday, Halloween, the only time of the year where accepting candy from strangers is ok. This story was back when I was a child, around 8 or 9, and was about to go outside to play with my friends. As I headed out, I was amazed with joy, of all the fall scenery. Seeing the neighborhood houses decorated, the clouds turn gray, and the weather turning colder, really put me in the spooky...
