Since I have another, more topical, post scheduled for tomorrow, on the Eve of Halloween, here is the drabble I wrote for the Halloween feature of the Burrow.
"Mamma, today is Halloween."
"We don't do Halloween in India."
"Because it is not an Indian festival. Don't we have enough festivals of our own?"
"But all my friends celebrate Halloween."
"Ben 10. Tom and Jerry. Richie Rich. Batman. Spiderman. Everyone."
"They are not your friends. They are cartoon characters. Your real friends don't celebrate Halloween."
"Please, Mamma. Please let us celebrate Halloween. Please, please, pretty please."
"Well okay then. But no jack-o-lanterns for you. No pumpkins in the market, and even if there were any, I don't know how to carve them."
"Live bats then?"
