Halloween in Singapore?
Overall Score 
In recent years, Halloween is increasingly celebrated in Singapore as compared to the past where the inherently Western festival was not popular locally. Now on October 31st, it is common to see little kids and teenagers dress up as villains or ghory characters.

In fact, I took part in the celebrations last year and dressed up as a Psychotic Nurse and went trick-or-treating with a bunch of friends. Popular go-to places would be Holland Village and Bukit Timah, where the residents are extremely generous with their candy as compared to areas like Bedok and Hougang where the hype for Halloween is literally non-existent.

A festival more for children and teenagers, while it sheds light on Westernization, I welcome its entrance as it gives Singaporeans one more festival to celebrate!
