Hello Halloween

Michael from Trentham

I have no great liking or belief for Halloween. Its background is edgy and it was kind of foistered onto our society by commercial interests. In that regard not a lot different from most other celebratory annual events particularly those of American origin.

I have no great liking or belief for Halloween. Its background is edgy and it was kind of foistered onto our society by commercial interests. In that regard not a lot different from most other celebratory annual events particularly those of American origin.

But that is not to say I haven't participated in Halloween one way or another and my wife buys lollies for us to give to any trick or treat people who knock at our door and show an inkling of a costume/ facial makeup and especially if they can actually do a trick. Most kids seem ignorant of what a "trick or treat" actually suppose to mean.

Last year we didn't have to give away any lollies as no one turned up so we enjoyed them ourselves. Pays to buy something you yourself likes.

Perhaps Halloween is waning in NZ.

There are still teenage and adult parties in NZ with a Halloween base. Maybe the adult version of dressing up in something resembling hideous and partying is pretty cool. Some adults just love dressing up for theme parties.

And I have been right in the thick of it at Art Deco in Napier and am suppose to book again for next February . But will it be going ahead?

Tens of thousands of new homes could be possible in Wellington after a major bipartisan housing announcement from Labour and National.
A new bill supported by both major parties strips red tape from the building process in an effort to accelerate medium-density housing.
The rule change will allow people to build up to three homes of three storeys on most sites in Wellington without any need for resource consent from August 2022.
Tell us what you think and if you do not want your comments used put NFP.
