Trick or treat?
Since its October, and cafes started offering delicious pumpkin spice drinks, its kind of in the air, it smells like Halloween season!! Although not a Christian Orthodox custom, Halloween has been becoming more popular the last few years in countries where they typically celebrate carnival instead, like Cyprus.!!
Halloween, also known as Allhalloween is a celebration taking place around the world on the 31st of October. The day is supposed to be dedicated to the dead, including saints, martyrs, and the faithful departed.
Halloween activities include trick or treating, attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films.
This year Halloween will be celebrated at the Cyherbia Botanical Garden on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th of October 2017, with games, challenges and activities for all ages.
