    Don't you think it would be odd for us to celebrate Halloween in Spring?

    But look, we don't even have Fall here, rather we have Autumn.

    Yes, most of these holidays will be reversed for you - on the opposite side of the wheel of the year. People can still celebrate them if they wish.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    @Starry
    That's so weird because the only time we ever turned off the lights, kept quiet and pretended we weren't home was when the Jehovah's witnesses were going door to door (the Mormons as well and I'm not even kidding or exaggerating here at all. My INTJ father is fearful of Christian people and so when they come to the door we all know to be completely silent...And he'll say in a loud whisper and hand/arm motions 'quiet, get down, mute the TV...' ha)

    But it seems so fake and phoney and so shallow, that we all feel like Americans for a while.
    Pfft. They stole All Hallows' Eve from a culture that existed before they were even thought of. And shat all over it. As they shit all over everything.

    It's incredibly tiresome and stupid. I detest everything about it.

    So while Americans are being good by being sincere, they appear to us as painfully boring.

    And while Australians are being good by being amusing, we appear to Americans as pathetically insincere.

    I am forced to confess: this morning as I bought my morning paper, I noticed Halloween paraphernalia for sale. So it looks like we play Halloween as well.

    You may not like our humour which is deprecating, and not just self deprecating.

    It looks safe enough as there are no large carnivorous animals, but it is very easy to do a perish, if you don't follow advice.

    Dressing up and having fun! I love Halloween. You get to be anything you want. >.<
    There'd be no method if there were no madness ...
