Heh,heh - Roombas of the world unite!
we dont have halloween 'officially' here in australia, yet stores sell costumes and plastic pumpkin baskets, and promote sweets. Also we dont usually have 99% of kids running around the neighbourhood, if you going to let the kids go trick or treating, its best to have adult supervision, there is always some weirdo around. Last year, i think only one kid came to my house, this year, none.
Its the same with valentines day, so much commercialism here for a holiday that has got nothing to do with us down under!
I wouldn't be surprised it we adopt thanksgiving next.
I will admit that I like christmas for these reasons:
All these holidays (including easter), have become so commercialised that we forget what they really are. But maybe that's ok, because if we wanted to actually celebrate a pagan ritual, would that mean we would need a blood sacrifice?
well anyway, thats enough for now
Hey and hello bonnie1702, it's nice to have sombody cheerful around!
