Halloween Ghost Stories: More Fun In The Philippines

From aswang to multo to tikbalang, these folk stories have been passed on from generations to generations.

The Philippines has a myriad of traditions during All Hollows Eve. These practices were done in various ways from different places and diverse cultures. From the famous tourist spots such as the pearl-like sand beaches, historical landmarks and opulent flora and fauna, our country offers more by taking you to breathtaking adventures that lie beneath the stories passed by our ancestors.

In our interview with Rhod Arbuis who happened to have experienced paranormal events in the province of Tuguegarao, Cagayan and even in the metro; there is no specific occasion in which these lost souls may appear in front of you.

“We all have a story to tell. Whether we admit it or not, there are souls lingering out there that seek help and attention,” Arbuis said.

“All of us have 3rd eye. In my case, I don’t want to entertain those things because I want a peaceful life. As much as I want to help them, I don’t want my present to be meddling with the past,” he added.

In an exclusive phone patch interview with Father Francis Lucas, Executive Director of the Episcopal Commission on Social Communication and Mass Media of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, he said that Filipinos should maintain the solemnity of All Saints’ Day and All Souls Day. Instead of wearing diabolical costumes that welcome ‘Satan’ they can portray image of saints and angels who became paramours of goodwill.

Moreover, “Having scary masks and knife embedded in the neck is pure evil. It is like tempting the Diablo ‘to come to me’ and destroy our consciousness so he is able to get to us.
