Operation Jack-o'-lantern

Happy Halloween Pips of the Blogosphere!

Operation Jack-O'-Lantern

Due to the death of Ras Al Khaima ruler HH Sheikh Saqr Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi on Wednesday Oct 27 many events in Dubai and the entire UAE has been cancelled as a sign of respect. Flags fly at half mast and some Emirates declared a three day public holiday and seven days of mourning.Events include those for the Halloween scheduled on Oct 27 to Nov 3. 

As a substitute and for them not to miss out, which is widely celebrated back in our home country, we had Operation  Jack-O'-lantern. We bought a small pumpkin from Carrefoure for AED 5.00. It's kind of small because the bigger and heavier ones are very costly, lets say AED 29.50/kilo and one big pumpkin is about 5 kilo each. So, we settle for a small one. The size doesn't matter anyway.

For sure the cemeteries in the Philippines are packed today and for those who are unable to go there to pay respect to their departed lighted up candles and said a little prayer for them.

This candle are for those of our loved ones who past away, may your souls rest in peace and for those who have not, may this light be a guide for you to travel towards that bright light.
