The eaves of all saints
My mother and her friends keep posting on Facebook how Hallowe’en should not be something we celebrate in Australia, as it is “too American”. But I say, to hell with that! They just want to feel all self-important by posting haughty opinion pieces via social media. I would never do anything of the sort.
The thing is, Hallowe’en didn’t even start in America. They just found a way to make it highly commercial there. And who cares if people perceive it as “American” anyway? The majority of people in Australia come from many different cultures, so if we want to feed a bit of the Hallowe’en spirit into this place, why not?
Besides, I love any excuse for a little partying.
