Halloween Posted by Transparent Language on Oct 30, 2009 in Uncategorized
Hello everyone- 万圣节快乐 (happy Halloween)! Halloween also goes by the name of 鬼节, but one thing’s for certain- people dress up as all kinds of 怪物 (monsters), or even superheroes like 蜘蛛侠 (Spiderman) 蝙蝠侠 (Batman) or 超人 (Superman). My plan for the day includes a Halloween concert at the 海边 (beach) which promises to be one huge 派对 (party). The only missing thing this year is that I can’t go anywhere to 要糖(go trick-or-treating. lit. ask for candy).
