Happy (?) Day of the Dead!
Not in Hollywood sort of way, with zombies and necromorphs, but in real life sort of way.
Visit a cemetery and light up a candle. Light up a candle for those you have lost, cherish their memory. It is hard to believe that we all end up buried under the dirt, but that teaches us about life. Life does not last forever. It is temporary adventure. So embrace the time you have with those around you but do not forget those that have been there for you in the past.
Go to a cemetery and remember the dead.

Personally, there’s absolutely nothing exciting about Halloween. Specially if you are a grown-up. I am done dressing up in slutty nurse or naughty school girl costumes and I don’t exactly go door to door to trick-or-treat anymore.
I hate to be scared; the last time I watched a horror movie with creepy clowns, or perhaps devil-obsessed babies I had nightmares for days. The writer in me keeps thinking of these characters and I create even creepier horror stories in my head. So, uh, definitely not fun.
BUT, there is one thing I love about Halloween: candy corn. Most co-workers of mine tend to buy it since it is “season appropriate” but they never eat it. So by the time we are done with Halloween, I am able to take home the leftover piles of candy corn and selfishly eat it by myself at home while browsing the internet. Now that, to me, is the only bright side of Halloween!
