Halloween is such an American thing, but i have noticed it is getter bigger here in Australia. My first introduction to Halloween was the movie ET. Whenever I think of Halloween, I think of that movie.
I live in a coastal town on the Sunshine Coast and I have noticed Halloween is getting more and more popular each year. I had over 150 trick or treaters yesterday in my Estate. The people have really embraced it. There is such a good vibe, with kids all dressed up and having fun, the parents and even people with no kids are participating. Everyone was out of their homes and mingling in the street. Hell, I even got dressed up for the first time in my life and I carved two pumpkins. It was a great evening.
