2 more spooky, Halloweeny images for you to enjoy today:
Halloween is not really celebrated here in Australia, unlike in America. Trick-or-treaters knocking on doors are still quite rare. Having said that, it has become a very popular seasonal retail opportunity for stores to, pardon the pun, make a killing. Morbidity, gore and black humour seem to appeal to many of the younger generation. With the recent spate of scary clown sightings not just in America but also here in Australia, sales should be right on target for retailers. Currently, Halloween merchandise jostle for shelf space with Christmas merchandise.
I bet the retailers will breathe a sigh of relief when they can put away their Halloweeny stuff til next August, and start banging their drums about Christmas instead.
