The Riverine Herald - - MONDAY CONVERSATION -

IT MAY be an Amer­i­can tra­di­tion but the twin towns are get­ting in the spirit of Hal­loween.

The pump­kins are carved, the lol­lies are in abun­dance and the spooky cos­tumes and dec­o­ra­tions are set across Echuca-Moama in prepa­ra­tion for to­mor­row night.

To­day and to­mor­row are your fi­nal chance to stock up on those dec­o­ra­tions and sweet treats be­fore trick or treaters hit the streets.

The pop­u­lar­ity of the tra­di­tion has grown across the coun­try with shops stock­ing Hal­loween sup­plies for the past month.

Homes and busi­nesses have also dec­o­rated their fa­cade in prepa­ra­tion for Oc­to­ber 31.

And sta­tis­tics have shown that Vic­to­ria is the most pop­u­lar state to cel­e­brate Hal­loween.

Dur­ing Hal­loween, Wool­worths cus­tomers are ex­pected to pick up about 820 tonnes of choco­late be­fore to the day.

Hal­loween pump­kins are also in­creas­ing in pop­u­lar­ity and this year Wool­worths ex­pects to sell more than 150 tonnes across Aus­tralia — a 25 per cent in­crease.
