Trick or treating: Love it or hate it

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?

Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like trick or treating, how do you make it clear your house is a no-go zone?

We're keen to talk to some people who feel strongly about Halloween one way or the other. If you have thoughts to share, please email homed@stuff.co.nz and we'll be in touch.

Hi neighbours - I'm Rémy, one of thirteen young adults about to take on the challenge of our lifetimes! We're each climbing up Mount Maunganui 38 times in 38 hours (the vertical equivalent of Mount Everest!).

Our objective is simple: raise at least $10,000 for the CatWalk Trust, a charity dedicated to finding a cure for spinal cord injury. We will push the limits of what we can do on our own feet, so that someday more people will be able to get back on theirs.

We would love your support! You can donate directly here, and stay up to date with our progress by following @ThirtyEightin38 on Facebook and Instagram.

PINK - A Colourful History

Administrator from Curtain Clean Bop Ltd

Madame de Pompadour, the chief mistress of Louis XV, loved the color so much that, in 1757, French porcelain manufacturer Sèvres named its exquisite new shade of pink, Rose Pompadour, after her.


Pink was not then considered a "girls" color -- infants of both sexes were dressed in white. The tint was, in fact, often considered more appropriate for little boys because it was seen as a paler shade or red, which had "masculine," military undertones.

The more recent association with women and femininity started around the mid-19th century, when "men in the Western world increasingly wore dark, sober colors," leaving brighter and pastel options to their female counterparts.
