Tammy: Om nom nom nom, these chocolates are amazing!
M: What the… Heart-shaped box, huh? Someone must have gotten lucky on Valentine’s Day.
T: Yeah, my best friend bought it for me. Isn’t it huge?! It must have cost a lot of money. I’m so lucky to have a friend who loves me this much.
M: What? … I mean, do you really measure your friendships like that?
T: Of course! Compare this to the paper card you made me! What the heck was that? You just took paper out of your printer. I bet it didn’t even cost you any money.
M: If that’s really how you judge your friendship, what do you think when it comes to all the time and effort I put in to make that card? I bet I took more time to make that card than your friend did to do some quick shopping for those chocolates.

Hallowe’en is older than you think. The holiday originates in the 10th century, but back then it was known as All Saints’ Day, or All Hallows Day. All Souls’ Day (a day to pray for the dead) and Samhain (a Celtic festival meaning ‘summer’s end’) are also believed to be where Hallowe’en originates. Although for most people it’s a fun night where kids can score some free candy and dress up. So what are you going to dress up as this year?
