AHHHHHHH so many memories!!! Listen to this song called the “Monster Mash”. It is and was very popular in the US. In my opinion, it’s THE Halloween song. They played it at school every Halloween party. Although now, I think they have a “fall party” instead of celebrating Halloween.
So, who is the Grim Reaper? Well, in short, he represents death. He is not a ghost, god or demon. He’s a “psychopomp”, whose primary function is to bring souls to the afterlife. He is tall and pale and resembles a skeleton. He wears a long black hooded cloak. He holds a scythe which he uses to get souls. He glides instead of walks. He doesn’t talk much but always has a smile on his face.
