31st of October is HALLOWEEN DAY. According to the record, this Irish traditional festival becomes popular in the mid-to-late 19th century. The celebration takes place in a blast in North American and most European countries. However, some parts of Asia also commemorate the festival insignificantly. When I was in Bangkok, I used to go HALLOWEEN parties with my friends and of course my cousin. In Burma, I don??t see people celebrate that much.

This year, I saw HALLOWEEN decorations at our usual hangout place. It's a very modern and cozy coffee outlet called, COFFEE CIRCLE. I usually sit there with my cousin and my best friend. Not everyday but almost though. Night life here in Burma is kind of helpless. We are not blessed with many choices. There are only some modern coffee shops where we can sit and chit-chat. COFFEE CIRCLE is one of ??em. Today, I brought my camera to shoot jack-o??-lantern, pumpkins, lit by a candle inside, the most prominent decorations of HALLOWEEN. I am sharing with you guys. So, HAPPY HALLOWEEN and wish you??ll be HAUNTED tomorrow?

The carved pumpkins, lit by a candle inside, is one of Halloween's most prominent symbols in America, and is commonly called a jack-o'-lantern.

This is the stairs way at COFFEE CIRCLE… it's so cheerful so see lanterns… the masterful details of pumpkin crafts makes me SMILE…

Our friendly neighborhood, Spider man, also comes and celebrates his HALLOWEEN @ COFFEE CIRCLE…

      These are such fun shots and interesting to get a perspective from another country. In America teachers are very glad that Halloween is on a Friday since the activity and excitement level of the children will be very high. The kids are looking forward to dressing up and eating all of their collected candy.
