Story: Halloween Weekend

Not great, but at least a Formosa News original.

Slug: Halloween Weekend

Halloween has become an international reason for people to get together, dress up and have a lot of fun. Michella Weng visited a couple of the happening spots this past weekend and has a report on how people in Taipei celebrate the 2,000 year-old tradition.##

Normally a sports bar, this place is packed with kids of all ages dressed up in all sorts of costumes, from the cute to the hideous. There was even a superhero with a beer belly.
有可愛的 恐怖的 甚至還出現了啤酒肚蝙蝠俠

There was plenty to keep the party-goers busy, including face painting, pumpkin carving and of course, some great Halloween fare.

This is what the kids are doing. Let's go over to the other side of town and see what the older kids are doing.

Adults have a lot more options when it comes to dressing up, and some of them really spiced it up.

This club was rowdy enough to wake the dead. Napoleon was dancing, American Indians were dancing and even bunnies were dancing.

拿破崙 印第安人 兔女郎 都來一起 high high high

Halloween has come a long way from its original incarnation, when Celts used the occasion to celebrate their annual autumn harvest.

Closing stand-up:
The Halloween that people know today is quite different from the Pagan, Roman and Christian forms of the celebration 2,000 years ago. But throughout the world and here in Taipei, it's mostly become a good reason for people to get together and have a ton of fun.
