Kapiti Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Hal­loween will be cel­e­brated on Oc­to­ber 31, this Tues­day. Peo­ple tend to ei­ther think it’s a bit of fun, or a com­plete waste of money.

We put up a poll on Neigh­bourly to see what our read­ers thought and re­ceived an as­tound­ing 400 re­sponses. And there was was a pretty even split.

Hal­loween is par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar in the US, ‘‘part of our cul­ture’’ as one ex-Amer­i­can said. She and her fam­ily had lived in New Zealand for five years and ‘‘have seen the hol­i­day grow more and more’’.

An­other per­son felt it was wrong to re­ward chil­dren with lol­lies and an­other per­son sim­ply hated it.

‘‘I am not nor­mally a grinch - love a party - but I sim­ply dis­like Hal­loween.’’

What­ever you feel about Hal­loween, this Tues­day please keep a watch­ful eye out as hun­dreds of chil­dren take to our streets.
