What I think Halloween is about!

On Wednesday I listed some things that I have noticed around Halloween time. 

People give out treats.
Dress Up
Jack O lanterns
“Scary” Costumes and Decorations
Evil Characters
“Trick Or Treat”
Toffee Apples
Going around asking for lollies
Horror Theme
Junk Food
Haunted Theme
Crazy Costumes and Decorations


And here is quick paragraph about what I think Halloween is about.

Halloween to me is a time where everyone dresses up to go ‘Trick Or Treating’ Most people tend to dress up in crazy costumes and pretend to act like dead and evil characters. It seems that people are celebrating the death of people.


Halloween is one of the world’s oldest holiday that is celebrated on November the first. People used to celebrate this event, and some still, by dressing up in costumes and lighting a bonfire. This was supposed to ward off the spirits.

Now, most people celebrate this event by dressing up as ‘scary’ characters. They also go knocking on doors, asking for lollies by saying “Trick or Treat!”

Halloween was not the original name for this event. It originated as All Saints Day but as years passed, the name, All Saints Day turned to All Hallows Eve. Nowadays we call it Halloween.

People believed that the night before Halloween, October the 31st, Samhain would summon spirits, witches and wicked souls. Since these people were afraid of the spirits they chose to sacrifice to their gods, hoping that this would protect them. On that day, they believed that they were surrounded by witches, spirits, souls, ghosts and much more that came to hurt them.

Kiwi Valley

During the holidays, I visited a place out in Henderson called Kiwi Valley. For those who don't know what Kiwi Valley is, it is a farm with many animals to interact with. It is very good for younger kids and animals lovers such as myself.

As soon as I walked in, I had already spotted some baby animals. There were lambs, piglets, bunnies and rabbits being looked after in a nursery pen. While I was in the nursery pen, I learnt that one lamb, Yoda, ate hair and the other ate material. My brother and cousin had been enjoying most of their time with the bunnies on the lap, but finally, we got them to come with us to the next attraction.

After having a go at the maze we went for a ride with Farmer Ben on the tractor. He took us up on a hill where the view was great! You could see Rangitoto as well as the Skytower. We also saw a cow called Summer that had a white belt.

Everything was great but my highlight would've had to be the part where we got to ride on the horses/ponies. My brother, cousin and I, rode on the horses a few times. We rode the horses around a course many times. It was great!

Overall, I had a great time and I think that it's quite a good place to check out. If you want to know more about Kiwi Valley click here :
