Today is Bhootchaturdashi, Indian Halloween, just like Christians believe that spirits roam free on Halloween Hindus believe souls come down to earth to accompany mother Goddess Kali, whose puja will be held tomorrow, so they barricade their homes and bodies against trespasses.
The homes are barricaded by placing candles at the doorsteps at dusk and bodies are barricaded by eating leafy vegetables (Really??? why not candies???).
So Happy Indian Halloween kitties, do place candles at your doorsteps ;p
love and hugs.
