These are the things that I normally see people use to celebrate Halloween.

Carved pumpkins with scary faces
Spooky things
Little kids running around the neighbourhood
Trick Or Treat
Creepy Characters

: I think that halloween is mostly about having fun, eating heaps and heaps of lollies and scaring people. Some people think that Halloween was about celebrating evil thats why a lot of Christians and people that go to church won’t allow their children to celebrate and go trick or treating. I would really like to know what Halloween is really about.

What I've Previously Found Out :

The Celtic Calendar
The celtic calendar, was when the the year was split into 2, the dark half and the light half.  On All souls day which was on 2nd of November priests would tell people to pray for the dead in purgatory. Purgatory is a place between heaven and hell, and according to the priests to get out of purgatory people would have to pray hard for you. Then after a lot of prayers you would then be lifted into heaven. 

Lemuria Day
On the 13th of may it was Lemuria day, this was when the  Ancient Roman’s  would pour milk on the graves or offer them a salt cake to stop them from rising up out of the ground. Lemuria day was then moved to the 1st of November to suck the life out of the Samhain harvest festival.

Jack O'Lantern
One of the original story's of the Jack O’Lantern was originated from Jack. He was a man who was kicked out of hell because Satin didn't want him there. The Devil then went to visit Jack and he played a trick on him. Jack nailed the Devil to the wall then the Devil said please let me go. Jack then said only on one condition, if you let me roam around on earth and let me live here as long as I want. Thats why they say to not go near flickering lights because people think it Jack O'Lantern.

Breaking News: 41 Elephants Poisoned

Breaking News : Earlier this week 41 elephants were sadly killed by poachers in Zimbabwe. How? They used cyanide poison to kill the innocent creatures by spreading it over their habitats. Previous reports from Zimbabwe parks from Caroline Washaya Moyo said she told many reporters that five suspects have been arrested and has been the parks worst case.  

People that live in the area have been told to not eat any meat of the dead animals found in the area. Over a period of about 3 years more and more poachers are starting to kill rhinos and elephants. Why? Sadly people are just killing them for their horns and tusks which are needed in parts of Asia for their medicine. Tests are still being taken on the dead animals, but for any human or animal to touch the poison is very bad.   

Unfortunately two years ago in that exact same park nine elephants, five lions, and two buffalo were also poisoned and then soon died, for the exact same thing. As well as it is also sad that people kill innocent animals for body parts, it’s sad because people don’t care about the animals and they just easily get away with it. I think this urgently needs to stop and  I think now!

Life In Auckland & Syria

Waking up in the morning, I enjoyed the delicious smell of fresh bacon and eggs. As I was jumping out of my bed, I then heard gunshots coming from each corner of the room. Suddenly echoes of screaming kids, gunshots were ringing in my ear. Scared and
helpless I ran into my room and grabbed my younger brother’s.       We quickly gathered into our basement, and cuddled to keep
warm. In that split moment I wondered to myself “ What In The World Is Going On?”.

As I peeled the blanket off myself, I looked out my window and the the sun shone right through. While I was lying  in my bed, thinking about what life would be like to live on the streets, I  caught the scent of delicious fresh cupcakes just popping out of the oven. I quickly ran into the kitchen, where my mum had set out a delicious breakfast for my younger brothers and I. Then I thought to myself, “ This Is gonna be a great day”.

The crisis was still going on. I decided to look for my mother, so as I slightly tip toed up the stairs into the kitchen, I heard the front door slam open. I quickly peeked my head through. I saw four men dressed in black looking around the house to see if anyone was there. As soon as they left I quickly yelled out “ MUM”. I then heard footsteps coming towards me.
After having a delicious breakfast with my family I got ready and then headed down to school. I walked into class and everyone said hello, then we got back into our daily routine. Afterwards we learnt a lot about the perimeter of shapes and how to calculate and read  the area. The home time bell rang and so I then headed home.

“Yes my dear” said my mother. I quickly hugged her close and tight. We quickly  ran back down to my brothers and sisters. My mother gave direct orders to wait in the basement until my father came. As soon as he  arrived at our house we quickly packed our bags and hopped into the car. As we made our way to our safe house I looked around the city and all I could see was our country in ashes. “we were robbed of our country and childhood mum”. “What are were gonna do now?” I said to my mother.

Arriving at home I quickly got changed out of my uniform and made something to eat. I then headed into the lounge and watched my T.V programs. After that I quickly checked if I needed to finish of any homework. Then I helped my mum cook dinner. Finally I then got to relax in my bedroom and have a sleep. saying to myself “ Could this be any more perfect”.
