  1. I am a bit surprised (and a tad dismayed) that Halloween has made it to Japan. Am I a bad person for saying that? I have to say my 3 kids are all grown up now, so maybe I am just out of the loop.

      I agree to an extent because its not the same as at home. I think it was adopted to promote consumerism. Yet another marketing gimmick. Its not a Japanese twist on a Western tradition, its another half-heartedly adopted money spinner! Although, in spite of all that, I am glad that my kids can know a little more about my “half” through the few events that are thrown near the time. Yet, nothing on Halloween night itself! Did you do anything on Halloween when they were little?
