Haunted Bloggers !

Tomorrow is Halloween, time for trick or treat! I'm sure everyone is getting ready for their costume party....a witch, a ghost, a pumpkin head, a monster or you may create your own style that'll be more original and a lot more exciting! An oppoturnity to rediscover the artistic side in you. Not to foget all those terrifying ghost stories from real life or movies that makes us frighten TONIGHT !!!

But most specially, November 1 is also the day to remember the Saints and our dearly beloved who past away. The time to offer a prayer for their lost soul.

FYI "The word itself, "Halloween," actually has its origins in the Catholic Church. It comes from a contracted corruption of All Hallows Eve. November 1, "All Hollows Day" (or "All Saints Day"), is a Catholic day of observance in honor of saints. But, in the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31.

Corsica itself is beautiful because of their famous mountains, hills, rivers, forests and beaches. Actually, we go to Corsica yearly because my father in law owns a house there (typical CORSICAN HOUSE - made of stone aged 300 yrs. already if i'm not mistaken) otherwise it'll be an expensive travel for us. Taking the Ferry has already taken our budget because we have 2 children so we need a cabin to stay comfortably. Everything there is expensive so I advise you to planify your budget. I enjoyed trekking, eating typical Corsican foods (thanks to a lot of friends), fiestas and appetizers from our village and the neighboring villages and it's very …
