In the west, 31st October is celebrated as Halloween Day. It essentially marks the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or the 'darker half' of the year. The harvesting festivity is celebrated with Halloween recipes and the winters ahead are depicted to children with stories having spirits or fairies.

In India too we find a few celebrating this festival more as a fashion and aping the west. Pumpkin has an important role in this festival because it is used for carvings and recipes too. Many times the poor Pumpkin is also the butt of jokes.

Why not celebrate this “Halloween”  with an Indian touch i.e Pumpkin curry as shown at http://www.gayatrivantillu.com/non-south-indian-1/gummadikaya-koora ?

Happy Halloween!!
