On Halloween, it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world and people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they leave their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, one should wear masks when they leave their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them as fellow spirits. In Singapore, Halloween is more of a reason to have a little fun time with friends. A simple scary head mask, or a set of vampire teeth is more than sufficient and these are available at SKP (#04-20/21/22).
