So October 31st is upon us once again. That means that it's time for Halloween. As a Brit I've oft heard people comment that they are tired of the Americanisation of the UK and that Halloween represents a prime example of this. Apparently Halloween is a relatively new thing to the UK. I always found that kind of reasoning odd because I'm in my mid-20s and I remember trick or treating and dressing up as a kid. So I know that, at the very least, Halloween has been a thing in the UK for 20 years now. So it's probably about time that people got over it and accepted that it's become a thing here now.
Still no Thanksgiving though.
As much as I enjoy some aspects of Halloween I fully accept I'm too lazy and antisocial to actually hand out candy. So I don't mind too much that there aren't that many kids around here trick or treating. So I guess there is a case to the idea that it isn't that popular here. Everyone in this house lives upstairs anyway so the house sometimes looks empty from the outside. Maybe kids just walk past our house thinking that no one is inside?
All I know for sure is that I'll be ignoring the doorbell all day. Well, a little more than usual.
