I just wondered what people thought about Halloween here in Australia, A few years ago I did not mind but now it seems that the shops are out to make money from it its crazy everywhere you go its halloween stuff everywhere you look some of it is a little scary to look at I must admit and a little pricey. It seems halloween has become a annual thing here now; I personally do not like it. I do not know why we celebrate it here as someone said to me its American and we are not America.What do you think.

  • haloween is fun for children


  • I love celebrating Halloween. The origins actually date way back beyond America. It is an opportunity for communities to get together and have some fun. No need to spend a lot of money. It is about the fun!


  • Where I live Halloween is big because of the Irish community who also celebrate.


  • When I was growing up my mum took us to a caravan park & we door knocked in the park only, all the parents knew of this event taking place so would stock up on treats however my children tried it once without much success only in our street & I was present but it is really an American thing can get expensive too :)


  • We do not like it as you said it’s American I wonder would the same people celebrate Ramadan. It’s vey I the interesting. .. I can not find value in this… The same as I do not do a turkey at Christmas time.. As I am not heating up my home. For a huge bird … Yes I love Christmas but we have a Australia Christmas our parents started .. Every body bring a plate off food there is a list and we all tick what we are to bring … No presidents everyone including all children do a chris Kringle. As Christmas morning Santa has been.. Last year. I did my niece a pair of swimmers and a beach towel…. So yes it’s over rated over priced .. People are no longer being the parents. It’s to much about. Look what I have it’s bigger better than yours show homes instead of a place to love and raise a family..
