Halloween is next weekend, for those that celebrate I am sure you are in thinking mode.  I have one daughter that is going to go to a friends house to celebrate, so we are thinking about costumes and snacks she can take.  I love this Halloween Hairdo below.

Nice that kids can dress up and have fun together – nothing wrong with that . But do we have to slavishly follow every American tradition in this country?? Let’s do more for Australia day for example and embrace us! Just a thought.

Kazzie October 19, 2015 - 8:32 AM

Hear, hear! I wholeheartedly agree!

Deleese October 20, 2015 - 6:30 AM

Agree 100% let’s stop becoming a mini America.

Halloween isn’t originally American, the British are the ones that bought it to the wider world, it’s just the Americans that are more embracing and seem to enjoy getting into the spirit and having fun. I’d prefer Australia stop being so boring and anti-USA and actually get in on the fun. What’s the harm in dressing up and having some creative fun with the kids?

I actually love embracing traditions from around the world! My new workplace goes all out for Halloween, and I actually won some Halloween candy, so we’ve been having fun with pumpkins and candy corn!
And I’m dressing up as Snow White! Should be a lot of fun.
