I’ve posted about my pet peeve before and my abhorrence of people criticising Halloween as an American holiday because that type of prejudice against a certain group is acceptable because they’re only Americans. Anyway I’m happy to report, I did not encounter any of that negativity this year! No, that’s a lie. I saw 2 people on my Facebook post the same picture of Halloween not being Australian, meanwhile I know for a fact they went out and celebrated it as well. I won’t go into that.
Anyway, this year we were invited to 3 Halloween parties and went Trick or Treating, mind you 1 party was actually hosted by an Australian while the other 2 were American and British but it was awesome nonetheless. Last year we only went to the American Halloween party and trick or treated at perhaps 2 houses so this year is a big improvement. Also this year there was a Halloween monster bash fundraiser for a good cause! Not sure what’s the change but it’s great. I even saw some Australian celebrities posting about Halloween such as one the Bogan Hunters herself:
So thanks Australia for giving it a go! I hope you all had fun!
