Origin of Halloween

Before this month ends, I want to post an entry that is worth knowing.  Since Halloween fever is in the air. I tried to read some articles/facts on how did this holiday started.  So for those people who love trick and treats and wearing Halloween costumes check what I found out. Have a spooky Halloween!


According to History.com, "Halloween, celebrated each year on October 31, is a mix of ancient Celtic practices, Catholic and Roman religious rituals and European folk traditions that blended together over time to create the holiday we know today. Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity and life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. Halloween has long been thought of as a day when the dead can return to the earth, and ancient Celts would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off these roaming ghosts. The Celtic holiday of Samhain, the Catholic Hallowmas period of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day and the Roman festival of Feralia all influenced the modern holiday of Halloween. In the 19th century, Halloween began to lose its religious connotation, becoming a more secular community-based children's holiday. Although the superstitions and beliefs surrounding Halloween may have evolved over the years, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people can still look forward to parades, costumes and sweet treats to usher in the winter season."

Trick or Treating is also a tradition of Halloween with early starts. Trick or Treating came from All Soul's Day parades in early England.  The poor citizens of England would line up on the sides of the street as the richer members of the community paraded by and threw them pastries called soul cakes.  The starving citizens would accept these cakes in exchange for praying for the richer class's dead family member.

Another tradition of Halloween is Dressing up costumes.  This is another tradition that started in early England where citizens, knowing that Hallows Eve was a time for spirits of their ancestors to come back and taunt them, would dress up in masks and costumes to keep the spirits of their ancestors to come back and taunt them, would dress up in masks and costumes to keep the spirits from recognizing them.

Work! Work! Work! vs Jail! Jail! Jail!

I just woke up and  checked on my clock it's already 11AM.  I only have 2 hours to prepare for my work. I don't know but, I've been tired and stressed lately about my job. You do the same routines every day. I conduct classes from pm to am. Make notes using the fastest internet connection I've ever used (It takes ages actually). I get my salary on the 15th and the 30th of the month which is sometimes stressful because of my  taxes. Given the fact that my taxes are getting higher and higher every cut off.  Then the next day,  I find out  doing the job that never crossed my  mind even in my wildest dream.  But I guess, that's life. You need to work  to survive and get a life.  Anyway,  while writing this entry. I just recalled a place where everything is free. Yes! you heard me right it's absolutely free.  You are even sheltered and taken care off. The haven that I'm talking about is a jail cell.  We had a chance to interview and  live with them way back in college.  So for sake of other people who haven't been there and tired of making a living guess what?  You will find that place as a sanctuary! Check out the Major-major-Major difference...


1. In jail... ( You will be fed 3x a day, it's 100% absolutely free )  At work...you will be stressed out on what food to buy because of your limited budget. That’s why, you will always end up eating these snacks:



2.  In jail... (if you're well-behaved you will be given a parole). At work...  will just be given with such a workload for a good behavior or even ask to make a "parol"(Christmas lantern) on Christmas party.


3. At work... you will be stressed out with rumors/gossips about you.  In jail... you don't fret about it. Why? Simply because, people are chit-chatting more on how to escape hahaha!




Aren't they the  reasons  why people want to go back inside the cell? Haha ( Just asking!!!)
Ooops!!! time is over guys. Time to go to work!
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!

Dance with my Father-Luther Vandross

       I was browsing on YouTube last night and surprised to see myself got teary-eyed with this song. It simply reminds me of  how blessed I am to have my father, who has been with me through ups and downs.  To my father who's always been there whenever I needed money and  never let me down. Thanks haha =)      Kidding aside, check out the lyrics of the song.  I'm sure you will remember the happy moments you shared with your Father. God bless all the fathers out there!    ( Note: You can check the song at my "Music playlist")

DANCE WITH MY FATHER
  (Luther Vandross)

Back when I was a child 
Before life removed all the innocence 
My father would lift me high 
And dance with my mother and me and then 

Spin me around till I fell asleep 
Then up the stairs he would carry me 
And I knew for sure 
I was loved 

If I could get another chance 
Another walk, another dance with him 
I’d play a song that would never, ever end 
How I’d love, love, love to dance with my father again 

Ooh, ooh 

When I and my mother would disagree 
To get my way I would run from her to him 
He’d make me laugh just to comfort me, yeah, yeah 
Then finally make me do just what my mama said 

Later that night when I was asleep 
He left a dollar under my sheet 
Never dreamed that he 
Would be gone from me 

If I could steal one final glance 
One final step, one final dance with him 
I’d play a song that would never, ever end 
‘Cause I’d love, love, love to dance with my father 
again 

Sometimes I’d listen outside her door 
And I’d hear her, mama cryin’ for him 
I pray for her even more than me 
I pray for her even more than me 

I know I’m prayin’ for much too much 
But could You send back the only man she loved 
I know You don’t do it usually 
But Lord, she’s dyin’ to dance with my father again 
Every night I fall asleep 
And this is all I ever dream
 

DOOLY

My world has gone wild when I met Dooly. Not actually met, because he's a virtual character haha!!  A green dinosaur with white tummy who loves to charm/bully people.  He's atrocious yet a debonair in nature. We're exactly alike in terms of appeal, charm and confidence. Popularity wise, he's ahead of me but swear I'm getting there. Unknowingly! while writing this entry, my nose started to ooze with blood. OMG! nosebleed, maybe because of what I wrote.
