Why do we do this?
I do not get this one. The supermarkets and other retailers have again attempted to convince us that Australia celebrates Halloween and we should be encouraging children and teenagers to wander around and knock on doors to demand sweets. I do not think so!
I’ll migrate that appropriate saying from that other not so relevant event: Bah Humbug.
They came and they knocked. We were not home to them as we do not participate or encourage this silly stuff. What a shame!
I agree with Van Badham in the Guardian Australia. Why do we do these silly things?
Meanwhile it is a fantastic time of the year to celebrate spring and the growing of vegetables in the back garden.
