Happy Halloween, Folks!
The witches, ghouls, spirits and monsters are on the prowl tonight in the States and Canada... The kids are all asking, "Trick or treat?".... Yeah, it's Halloween in the West ... A swell time for all, even for college students in the many costume parties on campus....Just wonderful to let all your hair down ....
Yeah, great memories I treasure of those young days when we scared each other and laughed till tears rolled down our cheeks with all the many pranks we played on each other!
Here's my contribution to this awesome annual ritual that would surely bewilder many foreigners who ever live in those fun-loving countries! These are the most creepy, hair-raising tips that will give you goose-bumps, even as an adult!
They're from our local Community Network...
Ghost protection in hotel
In every single hotel, there shall be at least a permanent room which should be left vacant at all times. No matter how full the hotel is, they are not to sell that room(s) to any guest. It is said that special room is 'reserved' for those 'special visitors'.
So, if you plan to stay in some hotel, always book in advance. Try to avoid a walk-in. If the receptionist tells you there's no more room available, do not insist on one anymore or try to bribe him or her to give you a room. If you do that, most of the time the room you have will be that 'special room'.
Sometimes, those 'special visitors' might go to other rooms also, so here's some tips on how to protect yourself:
- Before entering your room, always knock on the door first, even if you know the room is vacant.
- After you enter the room, if you feel very cold suddenly and have 'chicken spores', leave the room quietly and immediately and go to the receptionist to request for a change of room. Most of the time the receptionist will understand what's happening.
- After you enter the room, immediately switch on all of the lights, and draw apart the curtains to let the sunlight in.
- Before you go to bed, arrange your shoes so that one of them is upside down. Some say this is representing yin & yang to protect you while you're asleep.
- Always leave at least a lamp on while you're sleeping, preferably the toilet's lamp.
- If you're staying alone and they have given you a twin bed, do not sleep with the other bed vacant; try to put your things like luggage on the other bed before you sleep.
HAVE A GOOD NIGHT'S REST AFTER THAT, EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT ALONE!
