Okay the world has gone mad - when I was growing up "halloween" was something Amercians/Canandians did - but the rest of us in NZ  didn't ....... fast forward a few years & the commercialisation of Halloween has a firm hold here now. The supermarket last night looked like hurricance/tornado had been thru the snack area!!

Don't get me on how its a good thing to encourage youngsters to gorge themselves chocolate etc .... Traditionally the celebration for this time of year down here is GUY FAWKES .. BUT Now the local supermartket chain has a sign up stating they won't be selling them for safety reasons !!! BUT its okay to encourage kids to go door knocking on strangers asking for junk food  - while there is an obesity epidemic .... go figure

so the moral is we need protecting from ourselves - except when there is a global imperative to make money out of the occasion !?
