Halloween

It is a halloween and we live in an area where we never really get trick or treaters coming around.

It is odd as I don't remember it being a particularly big celebration when I was a child. It seemed firework night rather dwarfed it, we used to do Penny for the Guy and go to a few firework displays. But Halloween seems to be growing in popularity. Parties seem to be more common and the shops are making a bigger deal out of it as it fills a gap in the retail calender between Back To School and Christmas. Firework night itself seems to be smaller than I remember it to be. There seem to be fewer large displays, and fireworks seem to be more spread out over a large period of the year. I haven't seen Penny for the guy in years.

So my perception is that Halloween is squeezing out Firework Night as an event. I am not sure if that is really what is happening though. But I sort of wonder if firework night will be subsumed by Halloween at some point in the next twenty years. I also wonder if Thanksgiving will arrive on these shores. I know some churches have a harvest festival, but it is a bit shit really. I suppose there isn't a film industry that promotes Thanksgiving in the same way the Horror genre has promoted Halloween.
