In many countries around the world, October 31 is the day of Halloween. Though we do not celebrate this in Mauritius, I'm sure you must have heard of these 4 things which are associated with this festival:

  1. pumpkin carving
  2. trick or treat
  3. sweets for the kids
  4. dressing up (costumes & makeup)

So just for fun, if we were preparing for Halloween celebrations today, what would you dress up as? What costume will you choose?

I wonder why we don't celebrate Halloween in Mauritius!

It's probably because it doesn't fit with our culture.

There were a few places here in Mauritius that celebrated Halloween with a party, mostly expats though. I personally think I'm too old to dress up but I would have done a dramatic make up look like a burns victim or something gruesome, I think Halloween is a good idea for kids to get creative and dress up how they like

Some pre-primary schools had a halloween theme too and the kids used cardboard to cut and draw pumpkins as well as make witches face to hang on the wall. They must have had a lot of fun crafting these things...
