Halloween the "Cultural exchange"

Some people choose not to celebrate their culture and the traditions. Others choose to do so but under mutually acceptable conditions. For example, a party where people can choose to attend or not. I already do that. I need more!!

I had to employ "Guerrilla tactics" :)

I once sat out in-front of my local supermarket wearing this mask and getting blitzed on beer and July. (I quit drinking about 2 years ago though more of that ;) )

This is the Halloween version of "If you can't bring Mohammed to the Mountain than bring the Mountain to Mohammed". Though to be honest this I'm not true. I enjoyed today because I wanted to have fun and I used a holiday as an excuse ;)

Besides that phrase is inaccurate and in fact backwards. The implied power was infact meant to be expressed in the opposite way:

"he was never a whit abashed, but said, If the hill will not come to Mahomet, Mahomet will go to the hill."

I studied religion at my University which was fascinating but I'm not all that religious. I just mentioned this because I realized via "Google" that this phrase is almost always misspoken,misconstrued and misinterpreted F.Y.I ;)

Nobody was hurt by my "cultural expressiveness". I got a lot of laughs and made some people turn around and run the other way. I was an American Zombie.

I came.
I saw.
I scared ass!! ;)

*****Last Halloween post...I promise!!!*****

Halloween in Japan (2010)

You can't see a thing but it's all about the screams. :)

The girl in the top pic likes to think of herself as pretty damn cool and she is for her age but if she ever says "I wasn't scared"...I got a pic ;)

The child at the bottom of the first set of pics was eaten by the woman holding him soon after this picture was taken. I know what your thinking.."yeah,right"!! I got one question for YOU. Have you seen that baby today? O.K. then. You put a baby near a monster and some stuff might "happen".

Morgan liked his spider...A LOT!! Don't....touch his spider.

O.K., here we go...
"Hey Chris, I thought that baby got eaten? Whats it doin in the last pic?"

Observe the difference in clothing geniuses. That baby in the last pic is ANOTHER baby that wondered into the arms of a gentle looking monster and is probably about as "alive" as the one that got eaten earlier.

Monsters+Babies= Tragedy.

Halloween in Japan (scaring kids is fun)

In the end...the wouldn't go in. I had to turn most everything off before they would go. I will post this and NOT the boys vid because they would not even get near the school. I don't wanna crush their little boy pride so I'll just save it until one of then gets famous and then I'll use it for extortion purposes ;)

All focused on carving a Jack O' lantern and ignoring the horror which hovers over them. I think all kids have A.D.H.D as a kind of protection mechanism. I still have mine :)

A surprise gift of candy from Yu's mom. Thank you!!!

I'll add it to the existing "loot" ;)

Halloween (It's gettin' kinda scary Chris)

The smoke machine absolutely rules! It adds a dimension along with the scary graveyard wind with wolves and owls track running on a loop. The kids are terrified but having fun at the same time. Like a roller coaster :)
