October 29, 2006. I didn’t grow up celebrating Halloween. When we were much younger, my brother and I didn’t go trick-or-treating around the subdivision, exactly because there wasn’t any celebration at all. It was only until a few years ago when suddenly the village and my elementary school started organizing halloween parties and trick-or-treating for kids. I still actually don’t see the point. The whole concept still seems alien and foreign to me. It appears to me that it is simply an attempt to copy what Westerners do and an excuse to needlessly spend money. Halloween is irrelevant.
