halloween is for pangits

Ay, it's that time of the year again, mga sisters. You know, megatraffic near bus terminals and South Luzon Expressway; candles, flowers, incense sticks, kims all around; and the word DEATH hovers on our clouded thoughts.

At dahil morbid naman kung we think about death, di ba, kaya we do something else before we troop to dead cities. We celebrate Halloween!

Ha? Di mo alam kung ano yun? Ano ka ba, sister, san ka ba galing? Are you from Venus? Or Mars? Gay ka ba? Hello! Anyway, eto, courtesy of plagiarist's favorite site on earth, Wikipedia:

Halloween, or Hallowe'en, is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, Halloween festivals, bonfires, costume parties, visiting "haunted houses" and viewing horror films. Halloween originated from the Pagan festival Samhain, celebrated among the Celts of Ireland and Great Britain. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century. Halloween is now celebrated in several parts of the western world, most commonly in Ireland, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom.

Anywhere you go, Halloween is there. Goodness, even the corporate world is not spared ha. For employee enjoyment daw, so may mga Halloween parties where you can dress up as hags and vampires. Sa totoo lang, Halloween is just a reason for ugly people to emphasize their ugliness. Kaya we beach blondes, we don't celebrate Halloween. We spend this day making okray the people in costume. Ok lang, let's give them one day for themselves. The rest of the year, we beach blondes rule! Corrected by, sisters!

Pero sana naman, they just admit that they are pangit. Why deny the fact and then admit it once a year? Chorva.

I soooo agree with you! Next to incompetent, non-talented, all-gab bosses who graduated from this certain school (and/or their "branch offices" for the even more incompetent, non-talented, all-gab students with some money), corporate Halloween "traditions" are the most unnecessary evil of all evils. I mean it's bad enough that you have to work with these sad sad people daily, pero yun, you have to endure these production numbers (in costume) pa with them once a year!

Hayyy. Wait, before I forget, can someone blog about this Planet of the Apes exile Tessa Prieto-Valdes?
