good to see America appropriating the Mexican Day of the Dead as Halloween with all the spooky stuff is now embraced even in the Land Down Under with little kids doing trick or treating last night with all the supermarkets full of imported orange pumpkins, black & orange plastic stuff, ghosts & fake spider webs, ah the strangeness of global consumerism!
