The term Halloween (also spelled Hallowe’en) is shortened from All Hallows’ Even – e’en is a shortening of even, which is the origin of the words “evening” and “eve”. This is ultimately derived from the Old English Eallra Hālgena ǣfen. It is now known as “Eve of” All Saints’ Day, which is November 1st.
In the 800s, the Church measured the day as starting at sunset, in accordance with the Florentine calendar. Although All Saints’ Day is now considered to occur one day after Halloween, the two holidays were once celebrated on the same day…..
I’ve never really get myself involve in Halloween.
I dunno how fun it can be having people who dress up strangely walking beside you…
Now imaging this, you are surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of them…
If Zouk~ is one place that you cannot miss during Halloween,
then the streets in Woodlands Drive is definitely the another one.
I heard in total there are like 3000+ people roaming around the estate during Halloween night.
I was there yesterday because of filming ( 主妇的春天 Housewives Pte Ltd, you must watch out for it! ).
For an hour plus, I clicked none stop… haha!
Alright, I know I have to improve my photographic skill.
Some photos sucks big time! haha
But it’s no easy taking pictures when they don’t stop and pose for you okay!
Everyone was like busy collecting sweeEEets and running around…
I’ll do better next year, I promise! 🙂
