Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. While I’m aware of what Halloween is because of pop culture, it’s not really a Filipino tradition.

Some are a bit creepy, some have ghosts or zombies or other dark supernatural creatures. In no particular order, here are my recommendations:
