Why Halloween is never going to be big in Australia. A post in pictures.
So why don’t we do Halloween? Apart from the fact that there is no cultural history, isn’t Halloween supposed to be held on a dark and stormy night, when winter is just around the corner? Well, look at Australia at this time of the year.
It’s late spring.
Daylight saving means it’s light until 8pm.
Everyone is talking about going to the beach.
The streets are lined with flowering Jacarandas! I can seriously not think of anything less spooky.
