Halloween has always been a popular festival for all of us but this Halloween night in the US was one of the most unforgettable and remarkable nights for a Hong Kong girl like me. We knocked on the doors of the embassies on Embassy Row.
One may find it awkward to ask somebody for candy or lovely chocolates; however, in this country, they do not feel embarrassed to do it with the ritual “trick or treat”. It took us 20 minutes to walk to Embassy Row from the hotel with the chilly wind blowing. Yet, when we arrived, a group of people were dressed up as different characters like Mario and a volleyball player.
We waited gingerly as we knocked on every door on Embassy Row. The first door to open was the Turkish embassy. They offered us a basket of candy which we happily took some from. We asked them whether they were happy to join this event and they nodded their heads and said they enjoyed doing so. However we weren’t successful every time. But by walking along the road and waiting patiently, you could get the glimpse of the Halloween atmosphere in a foreign place.
