Just curious as I am of the belief that Halloween is our best holiday here in America. I admit Halloween is meaningless and commercial ridden; as is all our other holidays, but at least it’s an equal opportunity holiday. Pretty much everyone can and does celebrate it.
It’s pretty cool, that no matter how poor you are, you can knock on some strangers’ door and you will be treated to free candy for doing absolutely nothing!
I have my own house now, so I’ll be greeting the neighborhood problem childs with candy in the hopes they won’t TP my house. But I’ll be prepared if they get any ideas. Man, I love it.
But our friends across the pond seem to hate Halloween.
