Happy Halloween!!

It is that time of the year again... Temperatures start to drop. Leaves begin to turn colors and fall on the ground. And in the early evening of Oct 31, kids from around the neighborhood, dressed up as little goblins and ghouls, come and ring your doorbell. They'll yell "Trick or treat!!" when you open the door, and gleefully collect candies from your hands. [Mental note: one of them has peanut allergies.]

And a Jack-o'-lantern on your porch? Yes, a tradition around here in the Northeast (or wherever modern-day Celts congregate).

Why are the eyes triangular in shape? No one really knows. Maybe the all-seeing eye housed in a pyramid, an icon of the Freemasons, can tell us.

A Happy Halloween to all!!

some people have chocolate allergies too, but you shouldn't not give chocolate, that was always my favorite!

Luckily, as far as I know, no kids are allergic to chocolate in our neighborhood.

It pays to find out whether you are allergic to cocoa or some food additives in chocolate. It'll be a great shame if not being able to enjoy this wonderful treat.
