    I have NEVER celebrety Holloween day.

    Because I am not Canadian.
    I stayed here from Jul 23 and I can stay to Jul 22 next year. So I can make almost 10months commitment here. I know that some of the most valuable times in life are those spent with those at the end of life.
    But Now, I am having the LAST Time in Vancouver I think, because I cannot meet again Holloween in Canada.

    So I want to help them to have meanigful time.
