I don't know if I am the only adult in the world who hasn't experienced "trick or treating" as a kid? As far as I can remember, we didn't even have any mini celebration in my primary school unlike its contemporaries. No jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and ghouls, costume parties, no mention ever! Blame it on the strict conservatives. hmp! *just kidding* More so, in our neighborhood where house hopping in the middle of the night was almost impossible. Unless you are ready to withstand the cool temp & keep your body warm by running away from stray dogs, then you are "IN".
Just by mere imagination of Eileen dressed up in the scariest or whackiest costume she could get hold of while donning a exaggerated face paint is already satiating. It seems the kid in me is so frustrated 'til now. Believe it or not, I have been fantasizing over the idea for years. But who says, it's already too late? Nevah! Sooner or later, I shall have the chance to knock from door to door too with a bag of goodies, while uttering, "Trick or Treat?". However, would people just get scared upon seeing a grown-up mimicking youngsters once they open their gateways? 911 to the rescue! At least, I need not disguise. =)

I may have this longing but I am uncertain as to which character would I be. A Princess? A Gnome? A Witch? A Superhero? A Mermaid? A Fairy? hmmmm....perhaps a Clown. Since Clowns can be unpredictable especially with that indelible smile. You won't know when Clowns are at their happiest or loneliest. But looks like, I need not wear a costume. The Clown you see, is the Clown you get.

If I tap on your door, would you let the Creepy Clown in?

Happy Halloween!!!

This painting depicting a sad clown was purchased by a woman from an estate sale. The woman hung the painting in her living room. Soon after putting the picture on a wall in her home, the family allegedly witnessed the clown's eyes following them around the room. The painting would allegedly fall off of the wall without any visible explanation. Although the history of the painting is unclear, it could be reasonably suspected that there is some sort of spirit attached to the painting, causing the strange occurrences in this woman's home.
