The irony of it all is.. we encourage our children not to accept anything from strangers, not to go anywhere with strangers , not to speak to strangers unless it's an absolute emergency yet on this day , those same children ARE encouraged to do just that.. all for some American / British tradition that has nothing to do with Australia...
Yes

Halloween is Samhain so it is celebrated in October in the Northern Hemisphere, like how Christmas is celebrating the Yule in December in the Northern Hemisphere. However, in Australia it is opposite. We are literally celebrating the coming of harvest in spring, the winter solstice in the middle of summer and the spring festival in autumn. Doesn't anyone see the irony in this?
Yes

Turn the lights off, pull the shutters, hide. Fun for kids to dress up but not for those who are expected to go e money or lollies
Yes

it actually came from the Celts in the old Brittain and it was full of rituals and nasty things like child sacrifice (some).....and was supposed to be to do with the seasonal changes......then those who went to the old America took it with them; but it's only been made more popular now because the mormons practice it (and those who are originally from the States like to continue it here)

Yeah We always leave the dog out side to deter the kids from opening the gate ( nasty huh ) Only problem is all to often we hear the adults telling their kids to just "go to the door anyway" How do they know that my dog isn't a killer She's not She's a pussy cat
Yes

This is an American thing taken from the Day of the Dead but has been bought here and now it costs parents money to keep up with it. It encourages kids to take lollies from strangers, knock on doors of unknown neighbours etc. and also to create havoc if they do a trick which can sometimes be destructive or at least messy which is not fair to people who do not follow it.
Yes

Anything that encourages small children to knock on strangers doors at night is not on in my books.
Jenny said on Oct 2, 2019
Absolutely !!!!!!! What are the parents going to do or say when their kids are abused, raped, or kidnapped? Are we going to take up another American way of dealing with things and head straight for the courts and see how much we can line our pockets? Keep your kids safe and at home Watch a scary movie with them instead of letting them roam the streets at night and knock on strangers doors
