After the Light......

The sun will set on Diwali the festival of lights and bright colours in a couple of hours. And in less than a week it will be time to usher in another festivity. But unlike today which is a celebration of good triumphing over evil, the next big bash of October is all about the darker side of life.........

I'm talking about Halloween.........!! That time of the year when one is free to give their dark side full reign. No one's gonna ask you why you're clad in black from head to toe on Halloween, or quiz you on your blue lipstick and chemical green nails. I kinda dress like that on normal days too - so I know what it's like, having to contend with questions from nosey parkers.



So as one who loves all things Gothic, I've decided to countdown to Halloween by blogging about it! Beginning tomorrow until October 31, I shall write, write, and write about all things associated with this festival of darkness.

There'll be a fashion post, recipes for the bloodthirsty, and spooky tales that shall unnerve even the brave. So keep reading the Gripevine!

I don't follow the trend on Halloween but its sure nice to read and find out about what others experience and their thoughts.

Looking forward to your Halloween posts! :D Somehow i feel that Diwali has been eclipsed by Halloween. Kinda sad, because Diwali is a huge part of our Malaysian culture whereas Halloween is something that (to me) is more of an excuse to party and a commercial gimmick. =/

Sadly Diwali has become commercialised too. Too much of emphasis on the fun and party aspect, and the meaningful religious significance of it gets drowned out.
