Halloween? WTF?

By Leinna 1 November 2010 144

I’m sitting at home studying when I get a knock at the door.

Creepy kids in costume, aged about 6 or 7.  “Trick or Treat?”

I reply:  “Sorry kids, I don’t do that.”

They sigh, groan and mutter and head off.

I feel like telling them “Maybe you should try the United States.”

Is this getting more common nowadays?  Is it bad form not having anything?

I think you will find that Australians wish to de-deatch … …I see the similarities, and reasons why.

Yes, think that is actually a really good summing up.

You seem to really be drawing a long bow with that list.

Straight over my head, that one…:-)

I love the “Halloween is seppo crap”

Trick or Treating first appeared in the British isles in the late 1800s and was first recorded in Australia in the 1920s (Queensland it was common I believe). Trick or Treating did not appear in the US until the 1950s.

For those concerned about the threat of US cultural takeover, you may be pleased to know that Krispy Kreme (Australia) has gone into voluntary liquidation.
