Halloween Costume Party in the Philippines 2012

Halloween in the Philippines is totally different from the western counterpart. You can not see children knocking on doors asking for trick or treats in their fancy Halloween costumes. Filipinos do it in totally different manner.

I have been observing how Halloween is observed. In my childhood days is a different stories because the Halloween costume party is totally sponsored by Lepanto Mining Company. So what we do is we dress up in our most innovative representation of Halloween. Of course I usually choose Vampire costumes because way back then I thought that vampires are elegant and sophisticated creature. They are lovely and very attractive.

Today, when I came to Manila, I see group of volunteers who are organizing these so called street costume parade with stations where the kids would stop by to get their sweet treats.

After the street parade then the organizer would choose the best costume who would then receive a special treat.

One thing I realize, we celebrate it differently but one thing for sure every kids around the globe would for sue love this occasion because by the end of the day they get their sweet treats.
