  1. Thank you so much Ade. Yes, Halloween is part of the American culture, and much enjoyed by many, more than us in UK – something I discovered when I lived in US.

  2. When we were in NYC we got to see for the first time what a major major time it was there and especially how so many young people enjoyed it.
    However, I have to confess never having liked it and try (and fail) our best to avoid it. However, for those who do there really are some great quotes here.
