Scared to death: Happy Halloween!

Malaga HalloweenTo be scared to death is a popular idiom which means to be  very, very frightened.

Some people are scared to death of spiders, some are scared to death of cockroaches, but truthfully, I’m scared to death of dogs, cats and the walking dead! I mean seriously, who wants to come face to face with a zombie?!

Well, how stupid am I!! Obviously, the residents of Málaga. Indeed,  every 31st of October the usual late night bar hoppers and trendy clubbers all dress up in costumes of ghosts, werewolves, vampires, skeletons  and evil creatures and roam around the streets doing bad deeds.

Consequently, every Halloween I turn off the lights, lock the doors and hide under my bed eating garlic. That’s right, no vampire is ever going to bite me in the neck.
