Halloween is not as big of a deal here as it is in the US. No shops with Halloween decor spread everywhere. No houses with carved pumpkins on the front step. No streams of small children in costume making their way from door to door with their little plastic candy collecting pumpkins.

We did have one group of about six kids come to the door. They were in the 11 to 13 year old range, and were mostly kids from church.

A couple of shops, like Woolworth and Tesco had out one rack of costumes for sale. When we passed the one in Woolworth the other day, the kids that were standing there discussing the selection were American. As far as I could tell, there was no more candy for sale in either shop than prior to the “Halloween Season”. Why waste space on Halloween candy when you can start putting out the Christmas items instead?
