Okay, so I went running today, and in one area residential area there were over 100 people out trick or treating. Why should we be embracing this piece of culture? Good luck convincing me!

On an off topic side note ( :offtopic: ), if you haven't heard already, Virgin Australia have purchased a 60% stake in Tiger Airways, and are completely taking over Perth based carrier Skywest (whom Virgin already have a relationship with).

Odd, i thought most of the 'western' world did it.


Funny you say that because my brother is only 25 and when he was a kid no one in Australia got around trick or treating, so it's not something that has been happening for a long time now. :/

Odd, i thought most of the 'western' world did it. 'Tis a laugh, as all. Although, I've generally been of the "Stay at home and do nothing" type of Halloween person.


I am one of the agressive types XD

Interesting, just about everyone in my street did, but then again there are a lot of kids in my street. But from that another question arises, why are aussie kids being brainwashed by american culture. Yes I know halloween actually originated in Ireland to anyone who wants to be smart and correct me :hmmph: . But their version of halloween was to do with religion, but the yanks changed that. -_-

Maybe they are sick of eating the National dish of Australia. Vegemite and toast. And Self centered is thinking you still have a national culture. It went in the burner with all those guns....

1. You spelt VEGEMITE wrong.
2. I and many other Australians don't eat Vegemite on toast very often or EVER.

Yay, 400th post :D

Correct, but just stop bumping old topics with meaningless information.
