Halloween in Australia
ABC News asked readers what they think of Halloween. Here is what they had to say and photos they shared.
- don't particularly care that its "american" (which its not), we live in a multicultural country where we celebrate days from a variety of countries. its part of what makes this country so unique and great. celebrate halloween and for all the skeptics out there don't be offended when others say "happy holidays" instead of "happy christmas" because they don't celebrate christmas
- Not everyone likes Australia adopting Halloween though:
- I am not too fond of Australia adopting Halloween. Sure it may be good for the kids, but do we really need to be any more like the USA? We have our own culture, and events, and they have theirs. Yes it didn't start in the USA, but a lot of what we see today, in Australia, regarding Halloween, has to do with American influence.
